It will now support Android Auto as well as Apple CarPlay.

The engine that will be powering the 2021 Maruti Suzuki Swift is a 1.2-litre DualJet petrol unit. It is capable of producing a massive 90HP alongside a peak torque of 113Nm. Meanwhile, it will be mated to either a 5-speed manual or a 5-speed AMT gearbox. The engine that powers the current generation Swift is also a 1.2-litre petrol motor that produces 81.8BHP of power.

Alternatives

When launched, the 2021 Maruti Suzuki Swift will continue to compete against the likes of Hyundai Grand i10 Nios and Ford Figo. Here is what its rivals have got to offer.

  • Hyundai Grand i10 Nios – Starting with the Hyundai Grand i10 Nios which is available with three engine options to choose from including petrol, diesel and turbo petrol. Also, these three engines return a class-leading mileage upto 26kmpl. The all-new Grand i10 Nios comes with a 5 seater layout with an ample amount of boot space. Hyundai also offers almost all the features including a wireless charging pad, projector headlamps, Hyundai i-Blue App, etc. among others.
  • Ford Figo – Ford Figo is currently available with two engines on offer – a diesel as well as petrol. The diesel engine returns a claimed mileage of 24kmpl. However, safety is the major reason behind its large fanbase in India. The all-new Ford Figo with its best-in-class build quality offers six airbags for enhanced safety. Also, it is one of the only hatchbacks to get an auto-dimming IRVM.
