Maruti Suzuki has launched the facelifted Swift with a few visual updates along with a new engine under the hood. Check out the latest TVC for the 2021 Maruti Swift.
After a few years on sale, third-gen Maruti Swift has finally received its mid-life facelift. The facelift Maruti Swift is launched at the price of Rs 5.73 lakh. The top-spec model now costs Rs 8.41 lakh. Overall, the Swift features price increments from Rs 15,00 to Rs 24,000. The price hike is justified by several updates for the exterior and interior as well as the major changes under the hood. Maruti released a new TVC for the facelift Maruti Swift, highlighting the driving dynamics of the new model.
Last year, Maruti Swift is the best-selling vehicle in the market. Without having any significant update in the past few years, Maruti Swift is still doing well in terms of sales. Apparently, with the new upgrade arrived, it is expected that the Maruti Swift will see even better sales result.
For the new facelift, Maruti provides some minor visual updates that further strengthens the sporty and youthful appeal of its popular hatchback. On the front, the facelift Swift adorns a honeycomb mesh pattern grille with a big horizontal chrome bar in the middle. The new grille replaces the multiple- horizontal-slat version as in the pre-facelift version. Another notable change is that the facelifted Swift come with dual-tone exterior colours, including, Pearl Arctic White with Pearl Midnight Black Roof; Solid Fire Red with Pearl Midnight Black Roof, and Pearl Metallic Midnight Blue with Pearl Arctic White Roof.
For the interior, the Maruti Swift remains mostly unchanged. One of the few changes for the cabin is the new fabric upholstery given to the seats. In terms of features, the entry-level Swift VXi gets an audio control panel with feather touch controls. On the top-spec model, there are a few additions including cruise control, coloured MID, auto-folding ORVMs, and coloured MID.
Maruti Swift is now powered by a new 1.2-litre K12N Dualjet petrol engine
The main change of the facelift model must be the one happening under the hood. In place of the old 1.2-litre four-cylinder K12M engine, Maruti Swift gets a K12N Dualjet unit instead. The new engine is more powerful with a top power of 90PS against the 1.2-litre petrol’s 83 PS. Torque number remains the same at 113 Nm. In addition, the new engine gets an idle start-stop function that increases the fuel efficiency significantly. To be specific, the new Swift is claimed to provide the fuel mileage of 23.20kpl and 23.76kpl for the manual and the automatic version, respectively. On the other hand, the older version featured the ARAI mileage of 21.21 kmpl. 2021 Maruti Swift will be available in five variants, LXI, VXI, ZXI and ZXI+ and ZXI+ Dual Tone.
