NEXT GEN­ER­A­TION

Car India - - SPECIAL FEATURE -

In 2011, Maruti Suzuki launched the new-gen­er­a­tion Swift with many updates to re­tain its su­pe­rior po­si­tion among its com­peti­tors. The new-gen Swift ad­dressed all the short­com­ings of the pre­vi­ous gen­er­a­tion car, mak­ing it an even more en­tic­ing propo­si­tion. The de­sign of the new Swift was an evo­lu­tion of the pre­vi­ous gen­er­a­tion’s as most of the el­e­ments were re­vised in or­der to make it bolder and sportier. The en­tire front end was re­vised to lend it a more ag­gres­sive and sportier look. The tail­lamps be­came curvier and the lay­out of the lights changed dra­mat­i­cally. Over­all, the new Swift re­tained its sporty and youth­ful char­ac­ter with ever-present per­for­mance.

The big­gest change, how­ever, was ev­i­dent in­side. The en­tire cabin was re­designed to give the Swift an edge over the com­pe­ti­tion. The whole cen­tre con­sole was given a more ro­bust and sportier feel with sharper look­ing el­e­ments. Maruti Suzuki also took the qual­ity of plas­tics and the fit-and-fin­ish to a whole new level.

As for the en­gine op­tions, Maruti Suzuki made sure that the cus­tomers got noth­ing but the best and they re­tained the tried and trusted 1.2-litre K12M petrol en­gine and the 1.3-litre DDiS diesel en­gine. This made the Swift a new ex­pe­ri­ence.
