The Swift is not only an iconic brand for the company, but also the first premium hatchback that changed the game for MSIL and the industry after its first launch in 2005.

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 facia now has bug-like headlamps and single frame grille. The auto gets new LED taillights and a redesigned rear bumper with a wider track.

The boldness of the auto is demonstrated by wrap around windshield with unified DLO (day light opening) graphic and vertically sweeping lamps.

Maruti Suziki Swift's new model still looks like the older auto but is more aerodynamic and has a higher wheelbags, so there's a little more space for the rear seat passengers. The body is curvier than the previous generation too, with sculpted design language and pronounced shoulders. The steering wheel is the flat-bottomed unit we first saw on the new DZire, sans the wood inlays, while the instrument cluster now consists of two individual pods with a shroud above.

Visually, Maruti Suzuki has managed to maintain the unmistakable Swift silhouette, however, the design is all-new. Moreover, the vehicle has a SmartPlay infotainment system that is supported by both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Built on Suzuki's innovative fifth generation HEARTECT platform, the all-new Swift has a superior power to weight ratio with an improved acceleration performance, Maruti Suzuki India said. The frame offers strong and rigid frame, while keeping the overall architecture light. Weighing less, the vehicle can deliver better fuel efficiency too.
