The New-Gen Maruti Swift: Bookings Open, Launch Expected in May 2024

New Maruti Swift Bookings Open

The wait is almost over! After captivating the Japanese market for months, the highly anticipated new-generation Maruti Suzuki Swift is set to make its Indian debut in May 2024. Bookings are already underway, with enthusiasts eager to get behind the wheel of this iconic hatchback’s latest iteration.

Fresh Design with a Familiar Feel

While the new Swift retains its recognizable silhouette, subtle design tweaks add a touch of sharpness. The teased image reveals a new grille and sharper LED headlights, hinting at a sportier and more contemporary aesthetic.

Revamped Interiors for a Modern Driving Experience

Step inside the new Swift, and you’ll be greeted by a completely redesigned cabin. A brand new dashboard takes center stage, housing a larger 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system and a modern climate control console. The upholstery also receives a refresh, elevating the overall feel.

Safety Features to Keep You Protected

Safety remains a priority for the new Swift. While the full suite of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) from the Japanese version might not make it to India, features like six airbags, a 360-degree camera, and electronic stability control are expected to be present.

Engine and Transmission Options

The India-spec Swift is likely to adopt the new 1.2-litre, 3-cylinder Z series petrol engine churning out 82 PS and 103 Nm. However, the mild-hybrid and all-wheel-drive variants available in Japan will likely be absent.

In terms of transmission, the Swift is expected to retain its affordability by offering the familiar 5-speed manual and 5-speed AMT options, potentially skipping the global versions’ CVT automatic.

Expected Price and Rivals

The new-gen Swift is likely to see a price increase due to its upgrades, with starting prices expected to range from Rs 6.5 lakh (ex-showroom). It will continue to rival the Hyundai Grand i10 Nios, while also serving as an alternative to the Maruti Wagon R and Renault Triber.

The new-generation Maruti Suzuki Swift promises an exciting evolution for the beloved hatchback. With a refreshed design, modern features, and a focus on safety, the Swift is poised to retain its position as a leading contender in the Indian market. Bookings are now open, so if you’re looking for a stylish, feature-packed, and reliable hatchback, the new Swift might be the perfect choice for you.
