Maruti Swift has just got a mid-life facelift with added features and mild exterior changes. Check out example of a new Swift VXI which has fitted a set of aftermarket 16-inch alloys.
The Maruti Suzuki Swift has been one of the best selling cars ever since it was launched in 2005, and with good reason. The hatchback offers probably the best ride and handling under Rs 20 lakh in India, comes with reliable and efficient engines, feature-loaded trim levels, and attractive pricing have made it the go-to-hatchback for a lot of Indian buyers. Maruti just gave the Swift a mid-life facelift which spruces up the design and adds more up-to-date features. Today we came across this brand-new Swift which gets a set of aftermarket alloy wheels.
The images have been uploaded by monga_tyres on Instagram in which we can see this brand-new Maruti Swift getting a new set of alloy wheels. From the pictures, it looks to be the Swift’s mid-level VXI trim which comes with steel wheels as standard. The owner has decided to ditch them and has replaced them with a set of 16-inch silver multi-spoke alloys from Plati instead which instantly makes the hatchback look more premium. Other than the alloys this Swift remains in stock condition.
The mid-life refresh of the Maruti Swift gets a new front grille with a silver finish on the grille mesh along with a chrome strip on the centre. There are 3 new dual-tone colours - Pearl Arctic White with Pearl Midnight Black roof, Solid Fire Red with Pearl Midnight Black roof, Pearl Metallic Midnight Blue with Pearl Arctic White roof. Other than that changes are negligible with the new Swift retaining most of the elements from the pre-facelift model. Over to the interior, the updated Swift gets new features like an updated 4.2-inch TFT MID display between the analogue dials, a new 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with SmartPlay Studio which offers better integration with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, key synchronised auto foldable ORVMs, and cruise control.
The 2021 Maruti Swift gets a new engine, the 1.2-litre four-pot K-Series Dual-Jet engine which also does duty on the Baleno. It makes peak power and torque figures of 90 PS and 113 Nm, respectively. The engine also comes with an idle start-stop function and can be mated to a 5-speed manual or a 5-speed AMT. Prices for the new Swift range from Rs 5.73 lakh for the base LXI trim, going up to Rs 8.27 lakh for ZXI+ AMT flagship trim. Do note all prices are ex-showroom.
