Suzuki will soon launch the 2020 Swift facelift in the Japanese market. The new model will feature subtle cosmetic updates on the outside
The upcoming 2020 Maruti Swift facelift has been leaked online ahead of its official launch in Japan. The pictures of the brochure of the new Suzuki Swift have been floating on the internet for a couple of days now. The third-gen Swift was launched back in 2016 and the hatchback is expected to receive its mid-life facelift later this year.
2020 Maruti Swift will be offered with two different front grille and bumper options
The original Mk3 Swift is offered in two different grilles up front, one with horizontal slats and another one with honeycomb mesh pattern. It also features two different front bumpers, with one of them being a tad sportier. The new Swift facelift will also be offered with two distinctive front grille and bumper designs. Like the pre-facelift model, the updated hatchback will be sold with an option of a sportier grille and a sportier front bumper.
The sporty-looking radiator grille of the upcoming model will feature bigger honeycomb-mesh openings. The hatchback also gets a new set of alloy wheels. Except for these subtle cosmetical tweaks, the upcoming model will look quite similar to the ongoing Swift. Furthermore, the cabin styling of the car will also be the same. The carmaker will sell the 2020 Swift facelift in Japan in five different variants, namely- XG, RS, Hybrid MG, Hybrid RS and Hybrid ZS. It’ll also be offered in four different two-tone colour shade options. The Hybrid MG and Hybrid RS trims will be retailed with a mild-hybrid system, while the top-of-the-line Hybrid SZ variant will be offered with a full-hybrid system. There’s no word from the carmaker’s side regarding the mechanical changes. In our country, the Mk3 Swift was launched back in January 2018, so we can expect the automaker to introduce the Swift facelift by next year.
The new model will be offered in four-distinctive colour shade options
The ongoing Maruti Swift is powered by a 1.2-litre four-cylinder petrol motor, which puts out 82bhp of peak power at 6,000 rpm and 113 Nm of twisting force at 4,200 rpm. Transmission options include a 5-speed manual transmission and 5-speed AMT (AGS in Maruti speak). It is priced between Rs 5.19 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) to Rs 8.02 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The hatchback rubs shoulders with the likes of Hyundai Grand i10 Nios and Tata Tiago.
