Expected Launch Date of 2017 Maruti Suzuki Swift: February 2017

Following the successful launch of the Baleno and Vitara Brezza, the Indian automobile manufacturer, Maruti Suzuki is now preparing the second generation Swift for the launch. It will be unveiled at the Paris Motor Show in October 2016 and India launch will follow next year. Based on the lightweight platform borrowed from the new Baleno, the 2017 Maruti Suzuki Swift will be a much more modern car than the current Swift. Though the details are not out yet, we expect it to be priced slightly higher than the current version. We expect to see it in the showrooms probably by Diwali 2017.

Design

The new 2017 Maruti Suzuki Swift will have some radical styling upgrades which include a large hexagonal grille, new headlamps, a floating roofline and wraparound tail-lights. The rear door handle would be on the C-Pillar. There will be changes to the interior too. It will get a new three spoke steering wheel with the audio and phone controls on it, a touchscreen infotainment system, automatic climate control and a redesigned air-con vents. The cabin will be plush with contrasting trim on the dash, door panels and floor adding to the sporty appeal. The new 2017 Maruti Swift will be using the lighter, stiffer chassis from the Baleno and it will weight about a quintal (100Kg.) less than the exiting one. It will be a longer and wider than the current model and will provide better crash protection.
