On August 17, Maruti Suzuki launched the all-new Swift in six variants with prices starting at Rs. 4.22 lakh. With a booking of 1, 08,000 cars to be cleared by Maruti Suzuki, Swift loyalties are ready to wait as long as ten months to drive home their new Swift. Such is the popularity and the cult-status which the Swift enjoys in the Indian premium hatchback segment.
The petrol Swifts are powered by a 1.2-litre K-Series petrol engine which has variable valve timing. The engine belts out 86 bhp of power and 114 Nm of torque. The diesel Swifts are powered by the same 1.3-litre Fiat-derived multi-jet diesel engine that makes 74 bhp of power and 190 Nm of torque.]
