Maruti Suzuki has been continuously launching new variants and updated versions of its hatchback, the Swift. From the basic model to an automatic transmission version with a few cosmetic changes, Maruti has now rolled out six models of the Swift in India. This is because customers want to differentiate between each version of the car and not just buy one model with different features as a package. This is also because Indians are no longer content buying a car that’s available in red or black variants only. Today, people want more options on their cars – paint colors, interiors, and engines.
New Facelift: What’s Changed?
However, there have been a few changes to the front and rear to make it look more modern. The biggest change to the exterior of the car is the adoption of a new grille and headlamps. The fog lamp housing has been reshaped and there is a new air dam and a new bumper. The rear bumper has also been altered and now has a larger exhaust tip. The company has added a few new paint options, but it has not added any new options to the interior. The major changes with the new model are the adoption of an automatic transmission (the outgoing model was manual only), and a new 1.2-liter petrol engine. The interior has a new design on the dashboard and the instrument panel. The seats have also been updated with better quality fabric, while the steering wheel has been given a new design.
Automatic Transmission Variants
The 1.2-liter petrol engine comes with two transmission options – a 5-speed manual, and a 5-speed automatic.
The biggest change in the interior of the car is the adoption of a new design on the dashboard and the instrument panel. The seats have also been updated with better-quality fabric. There are new color and upholstery options too. The car now comes with a standard touchscreen infotainment system with Apple Carplay, Android Auto, and Mirror Link support. The automatic transmission models also get push-button start, climate control, and a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system. The base model continues to get steel wheels, while the top-end variant gets alloys. The steering wheel now gets a new design, while the steering now gets tilt adjustment.
Exterior Additions and Changes
The car now comes with a standard roof-mounted antenna and a new color-coded rear garnish. The car also gets a new set of alloy wheels. The rearview mirror now gets integrated turn indicators with a new design for the exterior.
The new model with automatic transmission and a few interior upgrades will attract more customers and increase the car’s sales figures. The car is priced at INR 7.38 lakh for the base model (manual 5-speed) and goes up to INR 9.38 lakh for the top-end model. Maruti Suzuki has traditionally offered Swift a price advantage over its competitors.

Maruti Suzuki Ciaz facelift testing in India.
The Maruti Suzuki Ciaz is all set to receive a facelift. The present-day version of the premium sedan has been in the Indian auto market for years.
The Maruti Suzuki Ciaz directly rivals Honda City and Hyundai Verna in the segment.
Both the rivals have recently got a facelift, and it is high time for us to bring in the facelift version of the Ciaz to keep its sales in the market. We will introduce the new Ciaz with a redesigned cabin, new bumper, headlights, updated styling, and features. While the launch date has not been established, the premium sedan is expected to be displayed at the forthcoming auto expo in the national capital.

The vehicle uncovers the front section of the sedan. Though the sedan has heavy camouflage and most features are covered, the car will get a new grille pattern. Another change in the front facet is the headlamps; though the lamps look similar to the outgoing model, the facelift will get new LED DRLs (daytime running lamps) and projector headlamps. Another change would be for the planned front and rear bumpers.
