Maruti Suzuki dealers in the country have unofficially started accepting bookings for the new Swift at a token amount of Rs 11,000. The vehicle is due for official unveiling at the upcoming 2018 Auto Expo event in the country. Post launch, the waiting period for the new Swift hatchback is expected to be over two months.

The new-gen Maruti Swift will be based on Maruti’s new lightweight and rigid HEARTECT design platform, which also underpins the new-gen Dzire. The hatchback will get a single frame grille, new headlamps with LED DRLs and LED taillights. The new model will also get a floating-style roof design with a blackened B-Pillar and sportier alloy wheels. Inside, the vehicle will get the flat-bottom steering wheel from the new Dzire along with a new infotainment system and more features.

The company had recently stopped production for the current generation model to make way for the newer model. Mechanically, the vehicle is expected to continue being powered by a 1.2-litre K-Series petrol and 1.3-litre DDiS diesel engine options. The petrol version will generate 83bhp of power and 114Nm of torque, while the diesel version will produce 75bhp of power and 190Nm of torque. It is believed that the new Swift will be available in four manual transmission and three AMT options.

Pricing and other details will be known around the upcoming 2018 Auto Expo event in the country. It is believed that the Indian car manufacturer might also introduce the SHVS technology on a later date.
