Maruti Suzuki Swift has been one of the brand’s best-selling models since its inception. Even last month, it was India’s no 1 selling car. First launched back in 2005, Swift is now in its 3rd generation. Current gen Swift was first launched in 2017. In 2024, we will now get a new gen Swift.

2024 Maruti Swift To Get More Powerful Engine Option

New gen Swift has started testing, and is due for global debut later this year. India launch of the 4th gen Swift is expected sometime next year. Ahead of that, new details about the engine of 2024 Maruti Swift have leaked online.

Apart from the existing 1.2 liter petrol engine, Maruti Suzuki will equip 2024 Swift with 1.0L Boosterjet engine as well. This will usher in a new era in Swift’s history in India, as it has never had a turbocharged engine under its bonnet in this country.

2024 Swift With Boosterjet Engine – Turbo Power

Maruti’s 1.0 liter turbo engine is not new for India. They had launched it first with the Baleno RS, back in 2017. But due to low sales, it was discontinued. Now, with demand for more powerful cars in the entry segment on the rise, Maruti seems to have realized that the timing is right to offer the Boosterjet 1.0 engine in their cars.

The 1.0L Boosterjet engine is now assembled in India. This 3-cylinder engine delivers a power output of 100 PS and a torque output of 147.6 Nm. A 5-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission option will be the powertrain options. It will soon be on offer with the Fronx coupe crossover. Apart from Swift, this new turbo engine will also make its way to other Maruti cars like Baleno and Jimny in the future.

Swift with a turbo petrol engine is not a new concept. In fact, Europe has had a Turbocharged Swift for a long time. Swift Sport is that model and it gets a larger 1.4L Boosterjet engine. It even has a range of ADAS features on offer, to meet new safety standards in Europe.

What We Know About Upcoming Swift So Far

Upcoming 2024 Maruti Swift is 4th iteration of this model. Testing has already commenced in Europe and Japan. Next generation Swift will retain its general design silhouette, but there are enough distinctions to distinguish the new model from the outgoing one.

There is a new clamshell bonnet, lending a squared-off and muscular look. Headlights and front fascia will be changed too. We expect contrasting changes to rear design as well. Interiors will be updated with more features, tech, better seats that offer more comfort and space.

In addition to the 1.0L Boosterjet and the trusty ol’ K12 1.2L 4-cylinder engine, there are also reports of it getting a strong-hybrid 3-cylinder 1.2L powertrain. Maruti Swift Hybrid variant could deliver a mileage of over 30 kmpl. 2024 Maruti Swift prices will be in a similar range as current Swift. Turbo petrol and Hybrid option will be priced higher. More details will be divulged at the world premiere later in 2023.
