The upcoming new generation Maruti Swift won’t have a sunroof. I’m eagerly anticipating the buzz surrounding the facelift of one of India’s most prolific and successful vehicles. The recent Japanese Mobility Show revealed the latest iteration of the Swift, featuring updates in its exterior, interior, and mechanical aspects. The highlight is unquestionably the hybrid powertrain, promising an impressive mileage of approximately 30-35 km/l. However, there’s no conclusive report confirming whether the Indian version will indeed embrace this same powertrain. Let’s delve into the specifics of the facelift model.

The fresh spy video comes from carwaleindia on Instagram. This gives a clear image of the upcoming hatchback. However, the entire body has been wrapped in camouflage. Still, we are able to infer a few things. Firstly, Maruti generally offers the rear washer and wiper on its top variants. This one has the wiper, indicating that this could be the top model. Incidentally, there is no sunroof on this trim. This leads us to believe that Maruti won’t offer a sunroof on the Swift at all. This is not surprising since the largest carmaker in the country was never excited about offering a sunroof, to begin with. Only on public demand, it had to offer it on the Brezza. Apart from that, we also recognize the silhouette which resembles the existing model to a large extent. This car has black alloy wheels.

The most notable change comes in the form of a new powertrain, signalling a departure from the reliable K Series engine used in the Swift and other Maruti cars. The upcoming Z Series engine offers various versions, and the one showcased at the Japan Mobility Show is a 1.2-litre 3-cylinder hybrid engine, boasting an impressive mileage of approximately 30-35 km/l. While the power output remains similar to the current model, there’s a noticeable increase in torque, promising even more exciting low-end performance. It will be intriguing to see if Maruti introduces this engine to the Indian market. Regardless, the new Swift might steer away from the familiar K Series engine.
