Maruti Swift Dzire AMT Automatic is continued to feature the 74bhp, 1.3-litre Multijet diesel engine that does duty to the regular diesel models. Transmission duty is taken care of by a new 4-speed Magneti Marelli-sourced AMT gearbox.

Maruti Swift Dzire AMT Automatic has launched in the country at Rs. 8.39 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). After the Celerio, Alto K10 and WagonR, the Swift Dzire is the fourth Maruti to receive the Auto Gear Shift (AGS) technology. Unlike the Celerio, the Maruti Swift Dzire AMT is available only in the top-end ZDi variant.

Similar to the regular model, the Swift Dzire Automatic is powered by a 1.3-litre Multijet diesel engine that produces a maximum power of 74bhp at 4000rpm and torque of 190Nm at 2,000rpm. Mated to the Magneti Marelli-sourced AMT (automated manual transmission) gearbox, the vehicle is claimed to return fuel efficiency of 26.59kmpl. The Maruti Swift Dzire diesel automatic rivals Tata Zest AMT, which is, currently, the most affordable diesel automatic car in the country.

Here’s Everything You Should Know About Maruti Suzuki Baleno  

Since the vehicle had received an update earlier this year, no changes have made to the design of the car. Maruti Suzuki’s Auto Gear Shift (aka AMT) is made available only on the diesel variants of the vehicle. This system includes an Intelligent Shift Control Actuator that automatically controls shift and clutch operations. It directly mounts the actuator and controller in the transmission to synchronize working components. It also smoothen gearshift, and reduces the shifting time, compared to conventional automatic transmissions.

Commenting on the launch, Mr R S Kalsi, Executive Director Marketing & Sales, Maruti Suzuki India Limited, said, “Auto Gear Shift, a two-pedal technology, enables customers to drive with comfort and convenience, especially in congested city conditions. This convenience is available to them at an attractive price, without any compromise on fuel efficiency. Maruti Suzuki introduced the AGS technology in India with Celerio and we currently offer it in Alto K10 and WagonR also. It has been very well accepted by customers. We are delighted to now offer Auto Gear Shift technology in DZire diesel as well.”

“DZire, one of India’s most successful cars ever, will become even more attractive with the convenience of Auto Gear Shift technology, he added further.

      We don’t recommend our readers to go for extensive mechanical changes, this can affect the car’s performance and one might also lose warranty.
