Tokyo Motor Show 2023 Reveals New Maruti Suzuki Swift
The next-gen Swift set to launch in India next year follows an evolutionary design approach from its predecessors.
Suzuki has pulled the curtain off the much-anticipated fourth-generation Swift at the Tokyo Motor Show 2023. While the car is still referred to as a concept, it bears a production-ready appearance and is slated to make its way to India next year as the all-new Maruti Suzuki Swift.
A Fresh Look Inside and Out
The newly revealed Swift boasts a series of updates that give it a fresh, contemporary appearance both inside and out. Although the core Swift identity remains intact, closer examination unveils a host of fresh design elements. The front end sports a flatter profile with sleek, angular headlamps perched at each corner. The concept's LED daytime running lamps with a projector setup exude a sense of familiarity, signaling a production-ready design. The grille has been restyled, with a larger size and rounded edges, adorned with a glossy black and dark chrome finish. The Suzuki emblem now resides just below the bonnet, above the grille. The front bumper showcases new cuts and creases, contributing to an overall sportier look.
Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS)
The Tokyo showcase of the Swift also features Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), although its availability in the Indian variant is yet to be confirmed. Currently, Maruti does not offer ADAS features in its Indian lineup.
Notable Design Cues
A prominent character line runs along the side of the new Swift, merging seamlessly with the headlamps. While the roofline and the overall glass house shape bear resemblance to the outgoing model, the doors are fresh, with the rear door featuring a conventional handle location rather than on the pillar.
Rearward Style Evolution
The rear end of the Swift receives a styling update with angular cues and redesigned bumper and tailgate. The badging at the back hints at a "Hybrid" configuration, but it's worth noting that India will retain the pure petrol powertrain for the new Swift.
Familiar Interior with Modern Touches
The interior of the Swift retains its familiar design, with several interior elements shared with the Baleno and Fronx models. This includes the free-standing infotainment system, steering wheel design, and HVAC switches.
