Based on a new generation platform, the 2017 Maruti Swift is a few months away from its global debut. Already spied on test and leaked via patent images, the exterior and interior layout of the new generation Swift is not exactly a mystery.
Based on these spy shots and leaked patent images, a number of renderings of the new Swift have been digitally created, to give fans and probable consumers an idea of what to expect.
To replace the current generation Swift globally, new 2017 Swift will be based on a light-weight aluminium platform, like that of the Baleno hatchback. The design gets a bit more sharper, featuring projector headlamps with LED DRLs, hexagonal grille and large air dam.
To be longer and wider than current Swift, new Swift will offer more space on the inside. Interiors will feature a new layout as was revealed by the leaked photo. It will get a flat-bottomed three-spoke steering wheel with ambient lighting on the instrument panel and dashboard. It also gets a touchscreen infotainment system.
Powering the new gen Swift will be a new turbocharged petrol engine generating 140 PS. This engine will not be on offer in India. For India, expect the same range of petrol and diesel engines which are also on offer with current Swift. These engines will be tuned for better mileage.
Sales of Swift are highest in India. More than 45% of Swift sold till date are in India.
