2017 India Suzuki Swift revealed in Japan and is one of the best looking Swift till date as it maintains iconic design to an extent
Maruti is all set to be extremely aggressive in the market where it dominates the most. The manufacturer is loosing ground in certain areas despite sales not being affected. All of this is courtesy is manufacturer such as Hyundai, Ford and Renault targeting the brand and its audience to their showrooms. Maruti lacked the modern approach towards the products and in other ways as well. All changed with new launches such as Brezza, Ciaz and Baleno. Nexa also made sure the modern touch is ample visible. New Swift and Dzire that are set to come already look very promising. The New Swift has just been unveiled in Japan and is by far the best looking Swift till date. Let’s have a closer look.
2017 India Suzuki Swift Design and Dimensions
New spy shots reveal even more now. New headlights with oval shape and DRL’s can be seen at the front. A split bumper with and a large grille that is also has a partition, which again reminds of the Mini is finally here and the Swift looks rather good. Spotted here is the 5-door version of the hatchback but the rear door handle is mounted in the c-Pillar. The RS model in red has large wheels and slightly different grille.
The design worldwide is being termed as cute. Resemblance to Mini is intensified this time. These new camouflage that has been opted show the design very well. The tail-lamps are square and will have LED’s as well. The new side profile suggest the A-Pillar is going to be the same, B-Pillar is gone a bit skimpier and C-Pillar is squarish.
Rear has been highly criticized of the current swift and new one will be surely better as we can see in the pictures. Overall, the ‘cute’ meter is set to be high and is going to be a hip vehicle. Expect Maruti to offer a lot this time with the Swift to make it stand out. We expect a Indian spec version to be slightly different than this.

The diesel could be the same 1.3 Multijet unit which can now deliver over 27 km/l. Since the car will be lighter and more aerodynamic than the Baleno as well. We can expect to see the brand new 1.5 diesel engine that could make 90-100 PS as well. Mileage numbers for that engine could be around 25-26 km/l. Expect automatic gearbox option with both petrol and diesel engines this time.
2017 India Suzuki Swift Chassis, suspension and Brakes
The hatchback will continue use the same suspension and chassis system that it has. Rally based suspension at the front and rear and tuning will be on the stiffer side. 14 and 15-inch wheels be on offer for better handling and efficiency. Disc brakes at the front and drum brakes at the rear will continue. Expect it to be best handling machines as always and as other cars in the segment are know offering the same.

Quality should remain similar or be better all around.
