The spotted model here is the top-end diesel variant - ZDi - of the compact sedan, which is expected to launch during this year’s festive season. The AMT for the Dzire diesel will be sourced by Magneti Marelli – the Italian AMT kit supplier. The Swift Dzire diesel AMT will continue to feature the 1.3-litre Multijet engine that also does duty to the regular manual models. This powertrain offers a maximum power of 74bhp at 4, 000rpm, while producing a peak torque of 190Nm at 2, 000rpm.

Just so you know, the Maruti Suzuki Swift Dzire diesel, currently, is the most fuel efficient car in the country. The new 5-speed AMT won’t affect the fuel efficiency of the car, and it will continue to deliver the class-leading mileage of 26.59kmpl.

Since the vehicle received a facelift earlier this year, the design will remain unchanged. The top-end ZXi trim will continue to offer features like automatic climate control, dual airbags, ABS (anti-lock braking system) EBD (electronic brake-force distribution), ESP (electronic stability program), traction control system, brake assist etc.
