This is the all-new 2017 Suzuki Swift, showing it all inside and out. The next-generation 2017 Suzuki Swift is expected to reach European markets by early-2017, thus Indian launch will only happen sometime after that.
The design of the car bears a striking resemblance to the first-gen Swift, though the third-gen Swift will be significantly bigger than the current one. It further gets a large hexagonal grille, floating roof impression, door handles on the B-Pillar, and a Baleno-inspired waistline. Headlights and front bumper carry a unique design unlike any other Maruti we’ve ever seen.
The side profile carries a similar design as the current model with its blackened A and B pillars. It comes equipped with a very sporty design 5-spoke dual-tone alloy wheels. The rear-end design is strikingly similar to the first-gen Swift, however, the upper half of the C-pillar getting blacked out. Overall it carries the curvy silhouette, the design feature gets more sharper and pronounced than ever.
The interior is minimalist, with limited switchgear and clean lines, from the simple curved twin-pod dials to the circular AC vents. It seems that the new Swift will come with colour-coded panels on the interiors which will match the colour on the outside. Expect the Indian variant to feature Maruti’s SMARTPLAY infotainment system. And also note the large MID between the two-pod instrument dials.
In India, the 2017 Swift is expected to be powered by a 1.2-litre K-Series in addition to the 1.0-litre Boosterjet. The 1.3-litre DDiS is likely to be replaced with Suzuki’s self-developed diesel engine. The gearbox option may include 5-speed manual, an AMT or even a CVT unit.
As told earlier, the next-gen Swift will be based on the lightweight platform sourced from the Baleno and will have better crash protection. It is promised to use upto 41 percent of tensile steel for its construction, making it lighter than the outgoing model. With the lightweight platform, the 2017 Swift might be more fuel efficient and powerful than the current model.
