Safety Upgrades

In terms of safety, the new Swift is set to raise the bar with up to six airbags, front and rear parking sensors, and a 360-degree camera system ensuring comprehensive protection for passengers and aiding in safer driving action.

Engine and Performance

Under the hood, the 2024 Swift is likely to be powered by a new 1.2-litre 3-cylinder petrol engine, delivering 82 PS and 112 Nm of torque. This engine will replace the current 1.2-litre 4-cylinder petrol K-series dual-jet engine, offering an updated performance profile. Transmission options will include a 5-speed manual and, possibly, an Automated Manual Transmission (AMT) to maintain an attractive price point while offering convenience.

Pricing and Market Position

While the official pricing will be unveiled closer to the launch, it is anticipated that the new Swift will command a premium over the outgoing model, which is currently priced between Rs 5.99 lakh and Rs 9.03 lakh (ex-showroom). Upon launch, the Swift will compete against popular models like the Hyundai Grand i10 Nios, Tata Tiago, Renault Triber, and Tata Punch.

As excitement builds, potential buyers and Swift enthusiasts are eagerly awaiting further details and the official launch of this iconic hatchback poised to redefine its segment with its blend of style, performance, and technology.
