2024 New Swift : Price in India, Mileage, Images


2024 New Swift red color

Maruti, the renowned automaker, has unveiled its latest version of the 2024 New Swift, and while the exterior might not scream β€˜revolutionary,’ there are some significant changes under the hood and inside the cabin.

2024 New Swift Engine & Specifications

Let’s start with the engine. While the capacity remains the same at 1200cc, one cylinder has bid adieu. Maruti introduces the Z series engine, a 3-cylinder setup, globally equipped with a strong hybrid. Unfortunately, this hybrid option is not available in India. Despite losing a cylinder, the power has taken a slight hit, down by about 8 PS, with torque reduced by 1 Nm. However, Maruti assures us that they’ve optimized the engine for better torque at lower revs, resulting in improved fuel efficiency. The claimed mileage has bumped up from 23 kmpl to 25 kmpl. Interestingly, despite losing a cylinder, the weight has gone up by 20 kgs, mainly due to other tweaks and adjustments.

2024 New Swift price list for different variants:

  • LXi: Rs. 6.49 lakh
  • VXi: Rs. 7.29 lakh
  • VXi AGS: Rs. 7.79 lakh
  • VXi(O): Rs. 7.56 lakh
  • VXi (O) AGS: Rs. 8.06 lakh
  • ZXi: Rs. 8.29 lakh
  • ZXi AGS: Rs. 8.79 lakh
  • ZXi+: Rs. 8.99 lakh
  • ZXi+ AGS: Rs. 9.49 lakh
  • ZXi+ dual-tone: Rs. 9.14 lakh
  • ZXi+ AGS dual-tone: Rs. 9.64 lakh

2024 Swift Exterior

Moving on to the exterior, while the overall silhouette remains familiar, there are subtle changes. The headlights now boast LEDs, and the grille receives a minor tweak. However, the most notable change lies in the shutting mechanism of the bonnet and the altered bumper, making the car slightly longer but 10 mm shorter in height. The wheelbase and width remain untouched, maintaining the Swift’s signature stance.

2024 Swift Interior

Inside the cabin, Maruti has made some noteworthy updates. The instrument cluster now features an analog design, with a new MID (Multi-Information Display) available in the top-end variants. However, some traditional elements like the engine temperature and fuel indicator remain unchanged, much to the dismay of enthusiasts. Safety features receive a boost with six airbags becoming standard across variants, along with ESC (Electronic Stability Control) and Hill Hold.

2024 New Swift Cabin

The infotainment system gets a Smart Play Pro Plus screen, supporting wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Other notable features include wireless charging, a 12V socket, and various connectivity options. The interior space remains decent, with ample legroom and headroom for most occupants.

Sure, here’s the information presented in a table format:

Despite these updates, there are some misses. The absence of an armrest in the rear and illumination in certain areas might disappoint some buyers. Additionally, the price hike might make prospective buyers ponder between the Swift and its close sibling, the Baleno.

Only time and road tests will tell if the changes under the hood translate into a smoother driving experience.
