Maruti Suzuki India recently launched the much-awaited Swift facelift in the Indian car market. The company slightly tweaked the exterior styling and added some features to the hatchback. The addition of new features make it costlier over the previous model.

The changes given to the hatchback are not just limited to styling or value addition, the company has also tweaked the mechanical bits of the Swift to increase the fuel efficiency. The new model is claimed to be 10 per cent more fuel efficient that the previous model. Under the bonnet, however, are the same 1.2-litre 4-cylinder K Series Petrol and 1.3-litre Multi-Jet diesel units.
