Advanced Platform Enhancements

The fourth-generation Swift rests on the Suzuki ‘HEARTECT’ platform, known for its lightness and rigidity. During its development, the underbody structure and component layout underwent a comprehensive overhaul. A highly rigid frame has been adopted to enhance collision safety, although specific modifications for the Indian market remain under wraps.

Engine Specifications and Performance

A newly developed three-cylinder petrol engine powers the latest Swift. This engine delivers a maximum power of 82 bhp and a torque of 112 Nm at 4,500 rpm. The acceleration from 0 to 100 kmph has improved by 5%, now taking 12.5 seconds in the manual model and 11.9 seconds with the optional CVT. For the Indian market, Maruti Suzuki is expected to retain the 1.2-litre, four-cylinder engine, which produces 89 bhp and 113 Nm of torque.

Expected Features in the India-Spec Model

While the international models of the new Swift boast cutting-edge features and specifications, the India-spec version is likely to be tailored to meet local preferences and cost considerations. Despite this, the Swift is expected to offer a blend of performance, efficiency, and safety, continuing its legacy as a preferred choice among Indian consumers.


The launch of the next-generation Swift by Maruti Suzuki is highly anticipated. With advanced platform technology, improved engine options, and a commitment to safety and performance, the new Swift is poised to make a significant impact on the Indian automotive market. As we approach the launch date, potential buyers and automotive enthusiasts are keen to see how Maruti Suzuki will adapt this global favourite for Indian roads.
