And our long will soon come to an end as the Indo-Japanese carmaker will begin pre-launch media activities for the new Swift in third week of January, 2018. Besides this, the hatchback’s new model will make its public debut at the Auto Expo that will kick start from February 9, 2018.
First launched in August 2011, the Maruti Swift will enter into its third generation. And this time around, the car will receive comprehensive cosmetic and mechanical updates.
