Default Rumour: Maruti Swift to get 1.2L Dualjet petrol engine

According to a media report, the Maruti Suzuki Swift could be offered with the 1.2-litre Dualjet petrol engine.

Rumour: Maruti Swift to get 1.2L Dualjet petrol engine-2017marutiswift01.jpg

It has been reported that a BS6-compliant 1.2-litre Dualjet petrol engine could replace the existing 1.2-litre engine. The engine could be tuned to produce 89 BHP and 113 Nm of torque and is likely to be paired with either a 5-speed manual or 5-speed AMT.

The report suggests that the Swift might not get a mild-hybrid system, but it might come with an idle start-stop system.

In addition to the new engine, the Swift could also get a minor cosmetic update. It is also rumoured to get an updated 7-inch Smartplay Studio infotainment system.

Maruti Suzuki 1.2-litre Dualjet petrol engine likely to power Swift, WagonR, Ignis in the future'
The Maruti Suzuki Dualjet engine was being tested on the Indian roads from late 2015 and has been fine tuned to meet future emission norms.
This 1.2-litre K12C, dual VVT petrol engine makes more power as well as is fuel efficient. Maruti has ensured that there is more thermodynamic efficiency associated with this engine, with two injectors per cylinder (four). These are placed very close to the combustion chamber. The latter itself is now smaller. The compression ratio is higher than the older 1.2-litre engine. There are also redesigned water jackets whereas the coolant route too has been modified. Plus, the pistons have a lower friction. All these technologies together contribute to a far more cleaner running motor along with better fuel economy. While the earlier engine used to return 21.21kmpl in its BS6 avatar, the new one boasts 23.26kmpl with the manual transmission and 24.12kmpl with the AMT.
The big news is that this engine in the wake of the upcoming CAFE 2022 norms, might be used in all the Maruti Suzuki cars. This will be a replacement only for those 1.2-litre K12B engines that can be found under the hood of the Swift, Ignis and WagonR.
