With the third generation of the Suzuki Swift now over half a decade old, it’s time for an all-new model to take things forward for the Japanese carmaker.

All new Maruti Swift spied again

The next-gen Suzuki Swift (sold as Maruti Suzuki Swift in India) has been caught on camera again. This time however it’s fully undisguised, showing off the production look for the first time. The car is expected to be officially presented at the Geneva Motor Show.

As seen in the picture, the new Swift will have an entirely new headlight and bumper design. The hexagonal grille with chrome surround is all new too, if a bit bold looking. Look closer and you will spot the diamond cut-style alloy wheels and a somewhat similar glasshouse design as the current car.

The new Swift will be based on the Baleno’s platform and will get the latter’s 1-litre Boosterjet petrol engine. Additionally, there will also be a variant with the SHVS (Smart Hybrid Vehicle by Suzuki) tech, both paired to either a 5-speed manual or a 6-speed auto. The new Swift is claimed to have the best fuel consumption amongst B segment hatchbacks in Europe. It will measure in at 3.84m in length and 1.74m in width.

Following the launch of the new Swift, Suzuki will bring in the hot Swift Sport possibly with a 1.4-litre Boosterjet engine and a 6-speed manual gearbox. Now although the Indian market will not be getting the Swift Sport, Maruti Suzuki will launch the standard Swift with Indian requirements in mind. The India-spec car will be lighter and more economy-focused with a projected launch by early 2018.
