New Maruti Swift 2018 Spied Just Weeks Ahead of India Launch

The New Maruti Swift 2018 model is just a few weeks away from its launch in India. Already on sale in Japan and Europe, the 2018 Swift is much than merely a cosmetic upgrade. It is built on a more modern platform, offers a better interior, and for the first time, an AMT, too. Of course, it will even offer more features and probably a higher mileage. Ahead of its launch at the Auto Expo 2018 next month, the 2018 Swift has been spied totally uncamouflaged.

As you can see in the new Maruti Swift 2018 spy images we have on this page, the new model boasts a completely new design with evolutionary styling features. Even the interior is all-new and offers more space and features. As you can see in the images, the lack of Maruti badges hints that the new car will be sold thru Nexa dealerships.

As is the case with the current car, the new Swift will find itself positioned below the Baleno hatchback. In India, it will go on sale in both petrol and Diesel engine variants. While the petrol motor displaces 1.2-litres and pumps out a maximum power of 87 PS, the Diesel engine is a 1.3-litre unit that outputs 78 PS. Both the motors come mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. Additionally, both the petrol and Diesel models of the new Swift will even offer a 5-speed AMT.
