Showcased as Suzuki World Car Concept back at the 2002 Paris Motor Show, the car which is popularly known as Swift around the globe is all-set to enter a new generation. Currently in its third generation, images of 2017 Maruti Suzuki Swift (fourth generation) leaked online last week. These images were reportedly clicked at a dealer conference in Europe recently.
These images revealed the interiors and exteriors of new generation Suzuki Swift in detail. Based on these leaked images, our rendering artist – Pratyush Rout has created the front quarter of new 2017 Maruti Suzuki Swift in hi-res images.
Expected to make global debut at the 2016 Paris Motor Show later this year, new-gen Swift will be lighter, efficient and more powerful as compared to the existing Swift. The new 1.0 liter 3-cyl BoosterJet engine from Suzuki, which is rated at 110 PS and 170 Nm will also be offered with new Swift.

Interiors get a new dashboard with colourful accents, adding to the car’s sporty character. It also gets flat bottom three-spoke steering wheel with new instrument panel with ambient lights, smartplay infotainment touchscreen system, etc.
