The 2021 Maruti Suzuki Swift gets dearer to its customers. The company has hiked its prices the second time in the same month.
In the first half of July 2021, Maruti Suzuki hiked the prices of its CNG cars and the 2021 Swift owing to an increase in the input and transportation cost of production. Attributing to the same reason, Maruti Suzuki has once again upped the price of the 2021 Swift.
The price hike ranges from Rs 1,000 up to Rs 15,000. The top-of-the-line, ZXi+ AMT dual-tone variant receives a hike of Rs 1,000. The top-spec variant now asks for Rs 8.56 lakh (ex-showroom).
The price of the base, LXi variant has been hopped by Rs 8,000. The opening price of the 2021 Maruti Suzuki Swift is now marked at Rs 5.81 lakh (ex-showroom).
Other variants of the 2021 Swift such as VXi, VXi AMT, ZXi, ZXi AMT, ZXi+, ZXi+ dual-tone, and ZXi+ AMT have seen a hike of Rs 15,000. The prices range between Rs 6.51-8.42 lakh (ex-showroom).
The 2021 Maruti Suzuki Swift is a direct rival to the Ford Figo and the American hatchback has been recently updated with an auto-box. The prices for Ford Figo petrol-automatic start at Rs 7.75 lakh (ex-showroom).
In other news, reports on the internet speculate that Maruti Suzuki is working on a CNG fuelled Swift. If the speculations are to be believed, we reckon the CNG Swift will be powered by the pre-update 1.2-litre petrol engine (with single-fuel injector) in a lower state of tune.
