The lowest variant of the Maruti Suzuki Swift 2018 has been priced at Rs 4.99 Lakh and will directly compete against Hyundai Grand i10 and Ford Figo.

2018 Maruti Suzuki Swift has been launched in India at the ongoing Auto Expo 2018 for Rs 4.99 Lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The new generation of the Maruti Suzuki Swift has been launched after 7 years of the launch of its previous generation, which took place in 2011. In between, the widely popular hatchback has only seen a facelift version being launched by Maruti Suzuki. The launch of the next-generation Maruti Suzuki Swift will see eight new variants of the car, with four of them carrying AGS. Maruti Suzuki had started the bookings for the 2018 Swift last month, at a booking amount of Rs 11,000. Here are the features that the 2018 Maruti Suzuki Swift boasts of.

It will not be wrong to say that Suzuki has done a stellar job with the design of the 2018 Swift. This is the 3rd generation of Swift and Suzuki has retained the overall silhouette of the original Swift which was launched back in 2005. The front fascia has been revamped completely with a large grille, new headlights and even the new tail-lights. The protruded rear end looks sportier than ever. The new Swift sports 15-inch alloy wheels with 185/65 R15 tyres.

While the exterior of the Swift is evolutionary, the cabin is something completely different. There’s no hint of the outgoing model as the 2018 Swift gets a minimalistic dashboard, a new upmarket steering wheel, and two-pod instrument cluster. Even the feature list is exhaustive – like the touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and MirrorLink, paddle-shifters and much more. Suzuki has also managed to squeeze out more space from the cabin of the Swift with an increased legroom and luggage space. Overall, 25 percent space is increased.

As for its features, the all-new Swift now comes with leather-wrapped steering wheel, two tweeters, reverse parking sensors, front fog lamps, smart key with push-button start, automatic climate control, electrically retractable outside rear view mirrors, rear defogger, rear wiper and washer, adjustable rear seat headrests and even a boot lamp.

While there are many engine options outside India, the India-spec Swift continues to use the coveted 1.2-litre petrol and 1.3-litre diesel engine. The current 1.3-litre engine with 84 PS output is already one of the peppiest diesel motors in the country. However, Maruti re-tuned the engine to get more output, efficiency and performance. Moreover, the Swift also gets the auto gearbox like the 2017 DZire in both the petrol and diesel engines. The engine is mated to a 5-speed manual transmission and AGS is also available on four of the variants.

Fuel Mileage

The 2018 Swift is built on the same platform as the Baleno, which is 10-15 percent lighter. This weight reduction and tuned engine will lead to the increased fuel economy. Currently, the Dzire delivers industry leading 28.4 kmpl mileage. Since Swift is sportier than desire, expect a mileage around 26 kmpl through the diesel engine.
