2018 Maruti Suzuki Swift Hybrid Arrives in India, Delivers 32 km/l


It is expected that Maruti Suzuki will launch the much awaited 2018 Swift Hybrid in the upcoming Auto Expo.The company claims the car to provide a high fuel efficiency of 32.0km/L. The vehicle weight is kept within 1,000kg.In Japan, the Swift hybrid comes in two variants: Swift Hybrid SG and Swift Hybrid SL. The new model pairs standard 91hp 1.2-litre petrol motor to a 10 kW Motor Generator Unit (MGU) and a 5-speed Auto Gear Shift (AGS) gearbox. In addition to driving assist with its motor function, the system automatically stops the engine and switches to EV driving when the vehicle is running at a constant speed or during creeping.

The new-generation Suzuki Swift is based on the all-new HEARTECT platform, which is lighter and more rigid than the current version. So, expect the new-gen Swift to be lighter and more  agile. The HEARTECT platform will also make the 2017 Suzuki Swift safer than the current model, thereby complying with global and also the safety norms that will come into effect in India soon.The new generation Swift gets a completely new styling and looks more upmarket than its predecessor. The A-pillar accentuates the Swift’s trademark styling but the front grille is new and the new sweptback headlamp looks sleek and incorporates LED DRLs give it a sporty look. On the engine front, Suzuki is yet to reveal the powertrains but we expect the 1.0-litre turbocharged BoosterJet petrol, updated 1.2-litre K-Series petrol and 1.3-litre diesel to make their way under the hood. Transmission options will include the 5-speed manual and automatic units – though Maruti may consider the AMTs for both petrol and diesel models in India.

Expected price of the car would be approx. from 5 lac to 8 lac.

The New Suzuki Swift has to be one of the most relevant unveil for India at the Geneva International Motorshow 2017.
