With the festive season around the corner, every manufacturer is gearing up to launch new products into the market. Surfacing for the first time on the internet are the facelift version of the Swift, which may be christened as the Maruti Swift Sports.
The Maruti Swift has catered to a varied customer base, it appeals to the youth, those who need an efficient car and also is perfect as a small family car. The new Maruti Swift Sport, though spotted from a distance does seem to have a few changes to keep up with modern tastes.
As seen in the pictures, the Swift Sport comes with daytime running LED’s, a newly designed front bumper which comes with a wider secondary air-dam, re-worked alloy wheels, rear disc brakes, electronic foldable OVRM’s and maybe with newer color schemes. We can only speculate about the interiors, but the Swift Sport may come with a few tech-upgrades like a push-button start, auto-up feature for driver’s side window and rear parking assist.
There is still not much revealed about the Swift Sport in terms of aesthetic changes except for a few visible ones, but where the powertrain is concerned, we think the Swift Sport will not undergo any change and feature the same 1.2 liter, 4-cylinder, K-series petrol engine and the 1.3 liter, Fiat-sourced Multijet diesel engine, which may be tweaked for better fuel-efficiency. In case Maruti plans for more power to go into the Swift Sport, they may incorporate the Ertiga’s 1.4 liter, engine.
The Maruti Swift has been among the top-selling hatchbacks in India because of its sporty design and perky engines. We hope that the new Maruti Swift Sports will strengthen this position even further, when the car launches ahead of this festive season.
