Swift sales to com­mence

Auto Today - - Update! -

MARUTI-SUZUKI fi­nally launched the ea­gerly awaited new-gen Swift at the 2018 Auto Expo. Prices start at Rs 4.99 lakh, go­ing up to Rs 8.29 lakh, ex-show­room.

The new Swift is 40mm wider, with a 20mm longer wheel­base than the out­go­ing car. Styling is all-new and top-of-line vari­ants get LED day­time run­ning lights, apart from 16-inch wheels in a dif­fer­ent de­sign than the 15-inch wheels on lower vari­ants.

It is based on the new Hear­t­ect plat­form shared with the Baleno and the Dzire. Like the new Dzire, the Swift also gets an all-new cabin, with im­proved in­te­rior space. In­fo­tain­ment is cour­tesy an 8-inch touch­screen sys­tem with Ap­ple/An­droid con­nec­tiv­ity, mak­ing it the first time a touch­screen has been of­fered on the Swift. Fa­mil­iar en­gines power the all-new Swift, with a choice of a 1.2-litre petrol, or 1.3-litre diesel. AMT vari­ants are avail­able for both en­gines but only on the VXi/ ZXi or VDi/ZDi vari­ants and not the low­est or high­est vari­ants. Stan­dard across the range is ABS, EBD and one airbag. Mid and high level vari­ants get two airbags. The stan­dard war­ranty on of­fer is for a du­ra­tion of 2 years or 40,000km.
