Maruti Swift and Swift Dzire facelifts coming this year
At the 2014 Indian Auto Expo, Maruti Suzuki India launched its Celerio hatchback and unveiled Ciaz and SX4 S Cross. Moreover, the company also displayed the performance oriented Swift Sport. The company is now planning to introduce the facelifted version of Swift and Swift Dzire by the festive season. Earlier, both models were rumoured to be launched at the Auto Expo.
The competition level in the compact sedan segment is going to be stiffer, as Hyundai and Tata Motors have already announced their plans of launching a compact sedan in a next couple of months. Ford India had also unveiled the Figo compact sedan concept, which is scheduled to make its debut by the end of this year or by early 2015. With Honda Amaze doing great, Maruti Suzuki India decided to revamp its Swift Dzire, which is currently ruling the segment.
Maruti Swift facelift has already been launched in the International Markets like Japan and Europe. And, we expect that the company will not take much time to launch the updated Swift and its sedan sibling in India. The updated hatch gets LED daytime running lights mounted into the fog lamp, redesigned front bumper, and the LED treatment continuous to the rood mounted stop lamp at the rear. It is also expected that the top-of-the line variants of the Swift will feature the new 16-inch alloy wheels. A new Boost Blue Pearl metallic color will also be offered in the lineup.
The changes given to the interiors of the hatch are minimal. The vehicle is expected to get a new upholstery for the seats, an Auto-up one touch function to the driver's side power window, automatic headlamps, electronically adjustable side mirrors and few more.
Similar upgrades are also expected to be given to Swift Dzire. Mechanically, both cars will remain unchanged- a 1.2-litre petrol and a 1.3-litre Multi-jet engine.
