Suzuki has revealed its all-new Swift car concept at the Tokyo Motor Show. Although the car's overall appearance remains faithful to the original Swift, an in-depth look shows some contemporary improvements. The grille has been enlarged, with softer edges, and painted in gloss black and dark chrome. The Suzuki emblem is now above the grille, and there are revised creases and cuts on the front bumper. The core characteristics of the Swift have been kept on the sides. The second-row door handles and the newly designed 16-inch wheels, however, are the two major modifications. Furthermore, the rear bumper and tailgate have new designs. As of now, the concept has only been displayed at the Japanese Mobility Show. The company hasn't revealed anything regarding the India-bound production model of the Swift. However, industry reports indicate that the new Maruti Suzuki Swift will probably make its way to Indian roads as a production vehicle by the end of the following year.
New Suzuki Swift Concept: Interior
The car's interior design has received only a few updates, such as a redesigned dashboard, air conditioning console, and a 10-inch infotainment screen. However, most of the car's components, including the steering wheel, buttons, touch surfaces, instrument cluster, and center console, have remained unchanged. The car manufacturer has included level 2 ADAS, complete LED headlights, a new operating system for the infotainment system, and several safety features in the model.
New Suzuki Swift Concept: Powertrain
The Suzuki Swift Concept exhibited at the Tokyo Motor Show is a hybrid, but a 1.2-litre K-Series petrol engine with 89bhp and 113Nm is anticipated to be included in the India-bound new Swift. This motor will have either a five-speed manual or a five-speed automated manual transmission. It might support CNG and mild hybrid technologies.
Maruti Suzuki Swift India Launch
Next year, the new-gen Maruti Suzuki Swift is anticipated to launch in India. The model will compete with vehicles such as the Citroen C3, Hyundai Exter, Hyundai Grand i10 Nios, Renault Triber, and more once it is released. In terms of pricing, the upcoming Swift is expected to command a huge premium over the current model.
