2024 Maruti Swift CNG launch could be a few months away

The new Z-series engine is 10% more fuel efficient than the old K-series unit.

Earlier this month, Maruti Suzuki launched the fourth-generation Swift in India. Just like other models in the brand's line-up, the Swift will also get a CNG option.

With the new Swift, Maruti debuted the Z-series 1.2-litre, 3-cylinder petrol engine. This unit produces 80 BHP and 112 Nm. The overall output though, is expected to be affected when running on CNG. It is likely to be offered only with a manual transmission.

Maruti Suzuki claims the new Z-series engine is 10% more fuel efficient than the old K-series unit. This could also translate into better fuel efficiency when running on CNG.

The Swift CNG is expected to be offered in select variants. That being said, it will be more expensive than the corresponding petrol variants.
