The 2017 Maruti Swift has been testing intensely in Europe and the latest set of spyshots reveal the dashboard completely.
While the leaked image from a dealer conference already revealed the dashboard design, we now know that next gen global supermini will sport multi-function steering wheel with chrome inlays, and a modern instrument console with color MID.
The dashboard also receives exterior body-colored horizontal insert, a dual-DIN audio system (higher variants are expected to receive a touchscreen infotainment system), circular air-con vents and a familiar gear knob.
The overall dimensions are expected to be slightly larger than the outgoing car which would translate in better rear leg room and boot space. The new gen model is also expected to be equipped with more features and better safety package.
The spyshots reveal that the new Swift is testing with the Baleno in its tow. This confirms what we already expected – powertrains for the new Swift will come from the Baleno. We expect the 1.0-liter BoosterJet turbo petrol motor, 1.2-litre K-series petrol (some variants with SHVS) and 1.4-litre BoosterJet turbo petrol (for the new Swift Sport) to be the primary candidates.

Suzuki is likely to replace the ageing 1.3-litre Fiat-sourced diesel engine with a new homegrown mill. Both manual and automatic transmissions will be on offer.
