As we all are aware, Maruti has replaced the old K-Series engine of the Swift with its all-new Z12E engine. This 1.2-litre, three-cylinder, naturally aspirated petrol engine has lost a bit of power to make up for better mileage. It now generates 82 bhp of power and 112 Nm of torque.

However, to further increase its fuel efficiency, the company is about to launch a CNG iteration of this hatchback. It will then become the first model to feature the all-new Z12E engine with a CNG kit. This new engine with a CNG kit will have slightly reduced power and torque, but that is a tradeoff made when opting for a more fuel-efficient CNG powertrain.

Buyers of the standard Swift without a CNG kit have the option of a 5-speed manual transmission or an optional 5-speed AMT. However, the upcoming Swift CNG is only expected to be available with the manual transmission.

Pricing, Availability, and Fuel Efficiency

The current pricing for the new Maruti Swift ranges from Rs 6.49 lakh to Rs 9.64 lakh (ex-showroom). With the addition of the CNG option, buyers can expect a slight bump in the price. Reportedly, it could be approximately Rs 90,000 to 95,000 over the corresponding petrol variants.

At the moment, the exact variants to be offered with the CNG powertrain have yet to be confirmed. As for the mileage, the petrol version of the new Swift boasts an impressive 24.80 kmpl with the manual gearbox and 25.75 kmpl with the automatic transmission. Now, as per the reports, the new Swift CNG is projected to offer a mileage of over 32 km/kg.

The CNG variants of the third-generation Swift were very popular amongst Indian car buyers. If you are one of those individuals who are interested in getting the new Swift with the CNG kit, then you can wait for a little while.
