The official bookings for the new Swift started on May 1; however, there were reports that some dealers had started accepting unofficial bookings for the new hatchback. The Swift has been an extremely popular hatchback in the Indian market since its launch in 2005. Maruti is offering the current generation Swift in LXi, VXi, VXi(O), ZXi, ZXi+ and ZX+ Dual Tone variants.

The design of the new Swift is an evolution from the previous generation. It gets sweptback headlamps that look sleeker than before. The headlights are projector units, and the internal elements are blacked out for a sporty look. The car also gets a boomerang-shaped LED DRL. The front grille has been redesigned, and we see a gloss black outline around the grille instead of chrome.

The Suzuki logo is above the grille. The clamshell bonnet, 15-inch dual-tone machine-cut alloy wheels, electrically adjustable ORVMs with integrated turn indicators can all be seen in the higher variants. The other change one would notice on the side profile is the repositioned door handle. The rear door handle is now back on the door, which makes it more convenient to use than before.
