The last goodbye to one of the highest selling cars by Maruti Suzuki, which will soon be replaced by the latest version. Maruti Suzuki silently launched the Maruti Swift Limited Edition for the Indian Market. The pricing keeps it exactly in the middle of the base model i.e. Lxi/Ldi and Vxi/Vdi and provides the latest in tech along with the visual updates to the exterior.
Maruti Swift Limited Edition petrol has a starting price of Rs. 5.45 lakh and the diesel variant costs Rs. 6.34 lakh. The exterior gets new decals that enhance the overall exterior appeal and make the care look more dynamic. The interior gets matching upholstery and floor mats with limited edition stamp. The steering wheel gets a new sporty cover with matching color scheme while the gear knob remains plain.
On the tech part, the Swift limited edition gets an updated touchscreen infotainment system like its siblings- Scross, Ignis and Baleno and features Apple Car play and Android Auto along with Bluetooth connectivity. The touchscreen infotainment is connected to updated speakers to deliver clearer sound output and richer bass.
Surprisingly, the company just named it “limited edition” moving away from their style of giving a special name to each limited edition. The all new 2018 Maruti Swift is expected to launch at the 2018 Auto Expo and it will be the second car based on the platform after Dzire, which was launched earlier this year.
The limited edition will have the same engine options i.e. 1.2-litre petrol and 1.3-litre diesel engine churning out 83 bhp and 115 Nm and 74 bhp and 190 Nm of torque respectively. Both the options come mated to a 5 speed gearbox. The ongoing Swift has made its mark overtime with dynamic handling and frugal engines.
The next gen Swift, to be revealed at 2018 Auto Expo, will take all this a notch higher with better styling, improve dynamics, better cabin space, versatility and overall appeal, improved versions of the petrol and diesel engines will deliver more power still will be more efficient then the ongoing Swift.
The design cues can be seen in the current Maruti Suzuki Dzire wherein the car has become longer and wider with increased wheelbase adding to the interior space and comfort of the passengers while sitting lower to its predecessor improving aerodynamics and center of gravity which in turn results in improved stability and dynamic handling.
