Compared to the current-generation Swift, the new-gen model will get an entirely new design. Interior will see comprehensive updates with a pack of new comfort and safety features. As far as engine is concerned, the new Swift is likely to retain the existing engine setup – i.e. 1.2 K-series petrol and the Fiat-sourced 1.3 Multijet diesel. While the former makes 82bhp at 6,000rpm and 113Nm at 4,200rpm, the latter one churns out 74bhp at 4000rpm and 190Nm of torque at 2000rpm. Transmission options will include a 5-speed manual or an AMT system. Check Out – Upcoming Maruti Cars in India
