It is highly likely that the Maruti Swift will soon receive a styling update and a more efficient petrol engine that should make up for the absence of the diesel variant

Late last month, we reported that the Maruti Swift, which has been the undisputed leader of the B1-segment hatchback category, could soon get updated with a new engine and reworked styling. The new motor will be shared with the recently launched mid-cycle update for the Dzire, while even the aesthetics will be altered in a fashion similar to what we've seen on the sub-4-metre sedan sibling. A rendering by IAB's digital illustrator helps us visualize what the upcoming model could look like.

As suggested by the rendering, the 2020 Maruti Swift (facelift) will feature an updated front-end that will feature a reworked grille and a new bumper that looks sportier than before. While the refreshed Dzire gets chrome-plated horizontal slates for the grille, the Swift will likely flaunt a honeycomb pattern in line with its image of a sporty offering. Other than this, the side profile could feature a new set of alloy wheels, while the rear-end will likely come with some minor tweaks in the form of updated bumper and tail lights. 

Of course, the biggest change will be be found under the hood. The Swift is expected to get the same 1.2L K12N DualJet engine that has recently made it to the Dzire. This engine was first introduced on the Baleno in April 2019 and offers performance and fuel efficiency benefits over the K12M version. The motor offers a maximum power of 90 PS, while the peak torque, at 113 Nm, remains unchanged. Compared to the current motor, the upcoming engine benefits from a higher combustion ratio of 12.0:1 and two injectors per cylinder. The K12N DualJet engine also enjoys reduced friction for the piston linings, a cooled EGR system, and piston cooling system.

The current transmission choices, which include 5-speed manual and 5-speed AMT options, will be carried over. Currently, the Maruti Swift offers an ARAI-rated fuel efficiency of 21.21 kmpl. One can safely expect this figure to improve by at least 20 per cent with the introduction of the new motor.
