Next-Gen Maruti Swift Specs
Suzuki has showcased the Z12E 1.2-litre petrol engine for the Japan-spec Swift. The power and torque output with this mill is 82 hp and 108 Nm, respectively. This is slightly lower than the existing model which produces 88 hp and 113 Nm. There were also many reports floating around on the internet suggesting that it might also feature a strong hybrid engine in its native market. However, due to price constraints, we are not sure if it would make it to our shores. Hence, the chances of the regular Z Series engine making it to the India-bound Swift are high.
