Suzuki was seen testing the new generation Swift, which is sold in India under the Maruti Suzuki brand, alongside the old generation model of the hatchback.

Maruti Suzuki Swift, which is sold globally under the Suzuki brand, is about to get a facelift. With an older generation Swift hatchback on its tail, the new generation Swift was spotted testing on roads while covered in camouflage. The new Swift is anticipated to debut from Suzuki the following year. It is likely to receive a number of updates both inside and out. The test mule has already shown signs of some of these changes.

One of the key changes in the new Swift is the change in the rear door handles. Instead of the handles mounted on the C pillar, the new generation model is seen wearing the more traditional door handle under the window. While the rest of the car remains similar to the existing models, it is expected to come with a redesigned grille, new set of headlights and taillights.

The interior of the hatchback has not been spied yet. However, the new generation Swift models are expected to get all the latest features, such as new infotainment screen, wireless charger, new dashboard, offered in new generation Suzuki or Maruti models.

Under the hood, Suzuki is likely to continue with the new 1.2-litre four-cylinder K12C Dualjet petrol engine. This is the same engine used in the existing Swift models available in India as well. The engine, which is expected to be mated to the usual 5-speed manual and automatic gearboxes, is capable of generating maximum power 90 PS and 113 Nm of peak torque.

It is not yet confirmed if Maruti is also planning to drive in the new generation Swift in 2023. Swift in India was last updated in 2021 when it came with the new engine. The design of the new Swift underwent the last major update back in 2018. Swift in one of the best-selling hatchbacks from Maruti Suzuki in India.
