Under the hood, Maruti has introduced a new 1.2-litre 3-cylinder Z-series petrol engine, replacing the previous unit. However, unlike its Japanese counterpart, this new Swift does not incorporate mild-hybrid technology. This engine is paired with either a five-speed manual or a five-speed AMT gearbox, delivering 80 bhp of maximum power and 112 Nm of peak torque, slightly less than the outgoing model. However, it boasts an impressive mileage of 25.72 kmpl.

In terms of dimensions, the new Swift is 15mm longer, 40mm narrower, and 30mm taller than its predecessor, while maintaining the same wheelbase of 2,450mm.

While retaining the essence of the previous generations, it features a reworked grille with an all-black treatment, redesigned LED headlights and DRLs, and a change in the placement of the rear door handles to the doors instead of the C-pillar.

The rear of the vehicle also sees modifications to the taillights, along with redesigned alloy wheels. The ZXI+ variant receives diamond-cut … inch alloy wheels, while the ZXI trim comes with basic alloy wheels. The other variants offer steel rims, with the VXI variants sporting wheel covers.

The top-end variants are equipped with a larger 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system, 360-degree camera, Head-up Display, wireless charging, rear AC vents, and more.
