The Maruti Suzuki Swift, besides getting an all-new body, has now been updated with a lot of new features. The body shell is based on the new Heartact platform that also underpins the new Maruti Baleno and Dzire. While it is a lighter platform, it meets the safety norms better.

However, Maruti has kept the design of the Swift pretty similar to the previous generation, as it is a car that is easily recognisable. The floating roof design, muscular haunches, and swept back headlamps all find a place in the new Swift.

In terms of features, it gets a new touchscreen infotainment system on the top trim ZDI/ZXI + variants with reverse camera and sensors. All variants get two airbags, ABS and isofix child seat-belts. Automatic climate control and automatic headlamps with LED DRLs also find their way to the Swift.

The new design has allowed Maruti to increase the amount of space inside the car. It now comes with more legroom and headroom. The lighter weight (it's lighter by about 85 Kg compared to the previous generation) has made it more fuel efficient.

Watch the review of the Swift below:

The engine choices in the Swift are the same as before – a 1.2 litre petrol motors putting out 82 bhp of power and 113 NM of torque, and a 1.3 litre diesel engine that puts out 74 bhp of power and 190 NM of torque. Both come with five-speed manual as well as five-speed automated manual transmission options.

It is available in six colours, including two new colours – orange and blue.
