The top variant of the auto also comes with a smart key that enables the push button for starting and stopping the engine of the vehicle.
Built on Suzuki's 5th generation HEARTECT platform, the all-new Swift is wider, compact and with longer wheelbase allowing more cabin space, headroom as well as luggage space. The dual-pod instrument cluster on the dashboard looks premium, to say the least, and the steering wheel design adds a very sporty touch to it.
The entire Swift production has been shifted to Suzuki's Gujarat plant, while the Baleno will now be made at Manesar. The all-new Swift comes with a new exciting design, enhanced performance, and advanced pas-senger, pedestrian and child safety. The frame offers strong and rigid frame, while keeping the overall architecture light. While the petrol variant will have a 1.2 litre engine, the diesel one is powered by a 1.3 litre engine. The petrol engine is good for 82bhp of max power and 113Nm of max torque. The 1.3-litre DDiS diesel is still in the auto that has 74 bhp and 190 Nm of peak torque. This auto also comes with optional AMT which adds the convenience of automatic shifting without affecting the fuel efficiency.
