Rumour: Maruti Swift CNG bookings open unofficially

Dealerships have set a booking amount of Rs. 11,000 for the Swift CNG.

Some Maruti Suzuki dealerships have reportedly started accepting bookings for the upcoming Swift CNG. Customers are being charged a token amount of Rs 11,000.

The Maruti Swift CNG will be powered by a 1.2-litre petrol engine. This engine produces 89 BHP and 113 Nm when running on petrol, but on CNG, the overall output is expected to drop to 76 BHP and 98.5 Nm. The engine will be mated to a 5-speed manual transmission.

Maruti will offer the factory-fitted CNG kit on select variants of the Swift. They are likely to receive a similar set of features that are offered in the respective petrol variants.

The Swift CNG is also likely to receive a few tweaks to the suspension and brakes, to cope with the added weight of the CNG tank. The car will also get inter-dependent ECUs.
