Get ready to be disappointed, because the India-spec 2017 Swift will continue with the same engines as before - 1.2L petrol & 1.3L diesel - as per Autocar India's sources.

No Boosterjet, no Dualjet, no SHVS. At least, not at launch.

The India-spec Swift will continue to use the 1.2-litre petrol and 1.3-litre diesel engine as the current car, though the diesel engine might be tuned to produce more power. The novelty that the 2017 Swift will offer will be automatic options with both the petrol and the diesel variant.

Noisy as hell, similar to a diesel. I hate diesels anyway, do we can put that down to bias.
Otherwise, it's a Swift and a real shame, we won't get the advanced gadgets in India, especially the radar-laser based AEB.
What are your thoughts on the driveability of the boosterjet? Is there any turbo lag?

Not at all. It's super zippy, especially on Japanese roads.

I don't see any reason for them to change it. The current swift is a hot-seller and it will continue to sell no matter what Maruti decides to give or doesn't. Probably the only thing they might change would be a more stable body shell considering there is not much time left for the crash testing norms to come into effect.

The Swift will be built in Japan for European markets. Suzuki builds the Vitara and S Cross C/SUV's in Hungary.

Suzuki 2017 officially unveiled at Geneva,to launch in June 2017. Grill is different than those seen in Japan. Will be manufactured in Japan, Hungary and India.

New Maruti Swift India launch at Auto Expo 2018.
New Swift sits on all-new stiffer and lighter platform. Boosterjet engine option to come at a later stage.
Quote:
will be more in line with the first-generation Swift than the more ‘rounded’ current car
Quote:
What Maruti is also currently tossing around is the option of an even sportier version of the new Swift. A more driver oriented version is on the cards for certain, but Maruti still isn't sure if it wants to do a Baleno-like RS or a full-fat 138hp 1.4 Boosterjet-powered Swift Sport.

Quote:
The five-door only model will be available in the UK in June, and while there are no official details on pricing yet we expect it to start from around 9,000.
Quote:
Inside there’s a 4.2-inch LCD display to display driving information, plus a seven-inch touchscreen display for the infotainment system. Suzuki says it can be used while wearing gloves, and features a 3D sat-nav as well as Android Auto and Apple CarPlay
Quote:
The petrol-only engine line-up includes a 110bhp BoosterJet 1.0-litre 3cyl turbo, and an 89bhp 1.2-litre engine. A mild hybrid system is available with the 1.0-litre engine too, which lowers emissions to 97g/km.
Quote:
A four-wheel drive model will be available with the 1.2-litre petrol, and higher-grade models will get safety kit such as adaptive cruise control, auto emergency braking and a brake-boosting system for emergencies.

Not sure if it is me only but front looks to be awful and the taillights seem to have been inspired from Volkswagen polo. May be it will start looking good after we get used to its looks.

Some info on the Swift.

Swift at 840 kgs in Europe will mean even lesser when it lands in India (once a bunch of the gadgetry is removed). 840 kgs!

Tin can, anyone?

Quote:
The new Swift is 5 per cent more fuel-efficient than the existing version.
"We achieved this by developing a completely new super light weight body that weighs only 840 kgs, which is 120 kg lighter than the current model,"

Thankfully, Maruti has already started getting ready for the new Bharat safety norms. So it might have a crash worthy structure even if it 'FEELS' like a tin can.

Not a bad scenario if they can offer the turbojet for the swift as well.

Looks like the MS designers have a very strong attachment to these switches!

Wow - its only in India probably that people consider weight reduction in a car to be a bad thing. So in your opinion Ambassdor is the safest car ?
