Cool Yellow Aesthetics for 2024 Maruti Suzuki Swift
True to its name, the Cool Yellow Rev concept flaunts a vibrant Cool Yellow metallic paint, a fresh addition to the Swift’s color palette. The traditional chrome and flashy elements on the grille and wheels have undergone a sleek transformation, embracing a blackout treatment. The result? A hatchback with a distinctly sporty demeanor. Adding to the visual appeal are body decals featuring ‘SWIFT’ lettering and a standout grey-colored roof.
Peek into the Cabin: While the exterior receives a sporty makeover, interior alterations are relatively minor. The 2024 Maruti Suzuki Swift showcases a new dashboard design inspired by the Fronx and Grand Vitara, featuring a sporty combination of black, grey, and white.

Under the Hood
There is no change under the hood. The new-gen Swift features a Z-series 1.2-liter three-cylinder naturally aspirated petrol engine. While the Japanese model gets a CVT, the India-spec new-gen Swift will have manual and AMT options. The three-potter offers 82 hp and 108 Nm. This is a bit lower to the current K-series 1.2-litre 4-cylinder unit’s 88 hp and 113 Nm. However, the new motor could work in tandem with a strong hybrid setup. However, this arrangement might not make it to our shores owing to the price-sensitive nature of the buyers. That said, chances of the SHVS mild-hybrid tech making it to the India-spec new-gen Swift are pretty high.
What’s Next?: Maruti is already testing the new-generation Swift on Indian roads. In all probability, the new model will be hittinghitting showroom floors later this year. Anticipate a pricing premium over the current third-gen model, starting from Rs 5.99 lakh (ex-showroom). However, the modern powertrain, additional features and a higher focus on safety should justify the price increment.
