The Swift hatchback has been a popular seller for Maruti Suzuki for over a decade now. The current model which has been serving the Indian market for over five years now will be replaced by a new-gen model by end of 2017 or early 2018. The new model will be based on Baleno’s platform and it is likely that Auto Gear Shift diesel transmission that currently serves the Dzire sedan will be offered in the new Swift right from its launch itself.

The AGS transmission option is offered in Dzire’s diesel variant which is powered by a 1.3-litre engine which generates 74bhp of power and 190Nm of torque. Along with a regular 1.2-litre petrol engine, the new model might also get 1-litre Boosterjet petrol engine from the Baleno. It is also to be seen if the new model will get the SHVS (Smart Hybrid Vehicle by Suzuki) in diesel, which will further help in strengthening its position in the Indian market. As for dimensions, reports suggest that the vehicle will measure 3.84m in length and 1.74m in width.

As for design, based on what can be seen, the new model does not look anything like the current generation model. The hatchback gets new headlamps and a new bumper design. Sloping hood and diamond cut-style alloy wheels. The vehicle might also get front airbags as standard owing to safety norms which will be mandatory soon. As for pricing, the AGS variant might cost around Rs 30,000 – Rs 50,000 over the regular top-spec variant pricing that will be announced at the time of launch.
