One of the most successful hatchbacks ever is due for a facelift with new-age design and convenience elements.
The next generation model of the Maruti Swift is about to arrive. Firstly, we will witness a global debut, most likely next month (October 2023). The India debut will take place sometime early next year (2024). Swift is among the most successful hatchbacks Maruti Suzuki has ever produced. This is true not just for the Indian market but at the global stage. However, since the company has kept refreshing the Swift at regular intervals, the potential buyers have never lost interest in it. That is the reason why we will see yet another update of the mighty Swift pretty soon. Let us take a look at what we could expect.

In fact, this mill is an all-rounder. It offers decent performance, high efficiency and high mileage. The overall running and maintenance costs are not all that high either.
