  • Auto Expo 2018: Prices For The All-new Maruti Swift Start At 4.99 Lakh

The vehicle will be available in four variants for petrol and diesel: LXI/LDI, VXI/VDI, ZXI/ZDI, and ZXI+/ZDI+. On the top rims, projectors lens & LED DRLs are placed. Keeping the familiar Swift silhouette and wrap-around windows intact, the 2018 Maruti Suzuki Swift comes with a reformed front and rear.

The development cost for this model of Swift is over ₹700 crore and "the hatchback comes with around 98% localisation", the company said.

Launched in India in 2005, the Swift has been one of the top-selling models in the country, clocking a cumulative 1.8 million units in sales, but has been sidelined in the past two to three years by Maruti's own Baleno and Hyundai Motor India Ltd's i10 Grand and i20 Elite.

On safety, the all-new Swift embodies Suzuki's Total Effective Control Technology (TECT) for occupant protection and complies with frontal offset and side impact regulations and meets advanced regulations for pedestrian safety, claims the automaker. 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.

Both the variants come with either a 5-speed manual or an AMT (Automated manual transmission) options. The new model comes with an introduction of auto gear shift technology.

Day 2 at the Auto Expo will see some more launches by Maruti Suzuki for the four wheelers, while UM Motorcycles will stand up for the two wheelers. The VXi AGS variant will sell for Rs 6.34 lakh and the ZXi AGS for Rs 6.96 lakh. The diesel range begins from ₹5.99 lakh to ₹8.29 lakh and all the prices are introductory.

The 2018 Maruti Suzuki Swift could be booked at authorised dealerships for a token amount of Rs 11,000.
