Leading automobile manufacturer Maruti Suzuki is quite much in the news these days. Following the successful launches of the Baleno and the Vitara Brezza, the manufacturer has already started working on the next generation Maruti Swift. Unveiled recently in Japan, Maruti will probably launch this new model by 2017-end or early 2018! The 2017 Maruti Swift is a much more modern car than the current Swift. The upcoming 2017 Maruti Dzire will be based on the new Swift you see in images here. Here’s all that’s available on the New Model Maruti Swift 2017-

New Model Maruti Swift 2017 India Launch Date

New Maruti Swift 2017 Launch Date Early 2018

The first generation Maruti Swift was introduced in Japan in 2000, where it replaced the Suzuki Cultus. The second generation of Maruti Swift was launched in 2004. The current third version of Swift was introduced in 2010. Now, the next generation Maruti Swift will launch by the end of 2017 or early 2018. In all probability, the all-new model Swift will launch in India at the 2018 Auto Expo. According to certain reports, the launch of the new 2017 Maruti Dzire will take place before that of the new Swift in India.

The Swift will continue to sit below the new Baleno in the manufacturer’s product portfolio. In India, the Swift will continue to rival the Hyundai Grand i10 and will come in both petrol and Diesel engine variants. The Swift is an important car for the manufacturer and hence, the New Model Maruti Swift 2017 has some big shoes to fill. Like the current generation model, the new Swift will form the basis of the 2017 Maruti Dzire. MSIL will launch the Ignis early next year.

*expected price

Currently, the Maruti Swift is available at a starting price of INR 4.8 lakh (Ex- showroom Delhi). Though we do not have details about the pricing of the next-gen car, we expect it to be priced slightly higher than the current version.

Thanks to heavy localization, Maruti will be able to keep prices of the new Swift very competitive. Over the years, the Swift’s pricing has helped it cement its place as not just the best selling hatchback in its segment, but one of the best selling hatchbacks in India. The new model should not have any issues carrying forward the Swift’s legacy in India.

Currently, the engines for the Swift are– 1.2-litre, K-series Petrol and 1.3-litre DDiS 190 Diesel. For the 2017 Swift, the transmission options could be a 5-speed manual and a 5-speed AMT for the Petrol model. India is also expected to get SHVS mild hybrid system.

New 2017 Maruti Suzuki Swift Exterior Review

As can be seen in the images we have here, the basic design of the next Swift remains almost the same as the current model. However, it does sport many new styling elements like a floating roof, a Renault Pulse-like front grille, stretched-back headlamps, and new wrap-around taillights. Also, much like the Chevrolet Beat, the rear door handle has been moved towards the C-Pillar. We feel that the Swift’s exterior design has evolved in the right direction. The upcoming New Model Maruti Swift 2017 looks sportier and more premium. Yet, it maintains the essence of the original model.

New 2017 Maruti Swift Interior Review

Changes on the inside, however, seem to be far more comprehensive. There’s a new steering wheel that looks sportier, a two-pod speedo console with a large Multi-Information Display (MID), circular aircon vents. It also gets Maruti’s SmartPlay touchscreen infotainment system and circular controls and display for the auto aircon. The interior setup definitely looks more premium than the one we are used to seeing on the current model.

New Maruti Suzuki Swift 2017 – Engine and Transmission

Currently, the Maruti Swift is sold in petrol and diesel variants. The petrol variant comes with 1197 cc K-series petrol engine with VVT. While the max. power is 84.3 PS at 6000 rpm, the peak torque is 115 Nm at 4000 rpm. The diesel variant produces 75 PS of maximum power at 4000 rpm and furthermore a peak torque of 190 Nm at 2000 rpm. Both variants are mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. The new Swift will continue with these engine and transmission options. A 5-speed AMT could be added to the lineup.

Internationally, the new Maruti Swift 2017 could bid goodbye to the 1.6-litre Naturally Aspirated motor it currently comes with. Instead, it could get a new 1.4-litre Boosterjet motor that powers the Suzuki Vitara S. This engine pumps out a max. power of 136 PS and a peak torque of 220 Nm. Japan gets the smaller 1.0-litre Boosterjet Petrol engine. An ingeniously developed 1.5-litre Diesel engine could be offer at a later stage. Both the engines will get a 6-speed manual transmission and the petrol model could get a CVT too.

New Model Maruti Swift 2017- Competition

The Swift will continue to rival the same cars it rivals currently. These are –

The Swift leads on its segment’s sales charts. Such has been the demand for this hatchback that it has often outsold even the much cheaper Maruti Alto. True, the likes of Grand i10 and new Figo have managed to steal some light-light away from the Swift. However, with the launch of the next generation 2017 Swift, Maruti might end up giving yet another lethal blow to the competition. We are pretty sure that the New Model Maruti Swift 2017 India launch will be a significant milestone in Maruti’s really long success story.

New Model Maruti Swift 2017 vs Old Model

Underpinning the 2017 Maruti Suzuki Swift is an all-new platform. It will be lighter than the current car. It gets a more aggressive looking exterior with a gaping single piece front grille and large fog lamp housings. The 2017 Maruti Swift features projector headlamps with LED daytime running lights. Like the Vitara Brezza, the new Swift also gets a floating roof effect, which along with the high-mounted rear door handle, gives it a coupe-like profile. On the inside, the 2017 Suzuki Swift is all-new as well.

2017 Maruti Swift vs Old Model

The dashboard design is more stylish and we expect Maruti to add more features too. Under the hood is where we’re not expecting to see any changes as the upcoming 2017 Maruti Swift is likely to get the same engine lineup. However, the diesel variants could benefit from Suzuki’s mild hybrid tech. New Maruti Swift’s could a cost a bit more than the current model, but we’re not expecting a major hike in prices. Overall, the New Model Maruti Swift 2017 will be more spacious, have a longer set of features and will be more fuel efficient than the current car.
