In an exciting development for all Maruti Suzuki Swift fans and lovers in the country, reports have emerged regarding the highly anticipated next-generation Maruti Suzuki Swift. According to the latest information, the fifth-generation Swift is expected to make its debut later this year, while the all-new highly anticipated Swift Sport variant is set to arrive in 2024, adding a thrilling dimension to this popular hatchback lineup.
Fifth-generation Maruti Suzuki Swift
The upcoming fifth-generation Swift will offer some major design changes both inside and out. As spy pictures and render images have revealed in the last few months, the hatchback will feature a stylish exterior with rounded edges, showcasing an evolution of its iconic design language. The front grille and bumper will undergo a complete rework, incorporating sharp features and a more aggressive appearance. The sleeker headlights, accompanied by halogen fog lamps and LED DRLs, further enhance its visual appeal. At the rear, the Swift Sport will boast faux carbon fiber skid plates, a newly designed bumper, and a striking twin exhaust system integrated into the rear bumper, emphasizing its sporty nature.
Inside the cabin, the next-generation Swift is expected to offer a completely revamped dashboard design, including Suzuki’s new touchscreen infotainment system, similar to the one seen in models like the Baleno and XL6. Additional features anticipated include an all-new instrument cluster, automatic climate control, steering-mounted controls, and connected car features, providing a modern and convenient driving experience. The utilization of faux carbon fiber components, sporty black leather upholstery with red stitching, and a flat-bottom steering wheel with carbon fiber inlays will further accentuate the next-generation Swift’s sporty theme.
When it comes to powertrain options, the next-generation Swift is likely to continue Maruti Suzuki’s commitment to fuel efficiency. The standard version of the Swift is expected to be powered by a 1.2-liter DualJet petrol engine, available with a 5-speed manual transmission and an AMT gearbox. Moreover, it is speculated that Maruti Suzuki may introduce its own mild hybrid system, providing an extra boost of power and further enhancing fuel efficiency.

In 2024, the highly awaited Swift Sport variant will join the Swift family. The exterior design language of the Swift Sport will offer a much more aggressive and sharper appearance compared to the standard model. The front bumper and grille will be reworked with distinctive sharp features, while the rear will showcase faux carbon fiber skid plates and a newly designed bumper. The inclusion of a roof spoiler will add a sporty touch, highlighting its dynamic nature. The Swift Sport will also feature an all-new set of alloy wheels, contributing to its athletic stance.
Inside the cabin, the Swift Sport is expected to continue the sporty theme with the use of carbon fiber components, offering a touch of sophistication. Although details about the interior remain scarce, we can anticipate a focus on driver-centric elements, such as a flat-bottom steering wheel, bolstered sport seats, and red accents to complement the overall performance-oriented appeal.
Under the bonnet, the Swift Sport is rumored to be equipped with a potent powertrain. It is speculated to be powered by a 1.4-liter Boosterjet turbocharged petrol engine, delivering a maximum output of 129 PS and 235 Nm of torque. Transmission options are expected to include a 6-speed manual and a 6-speed automatic.
