Apart from these features, the Maruti Suzuki Swift DLX also sports safety features like engine immobilizer, smart warning indicators, I-Cats security system, child safety lock, etc. Though the car features cosmetic and feature updates, on the mechanical front it remains the same. The hatchback runs on 14-inch tubeless tyres.
On the petrol front, power source is a 1.2 litre K Series VVT engine mated to a 5 speed manual transmission. It churns out 83 bhp of peak power and 115 Nm of peak torque. On the other hand, the diesel car is powered by a 1.3 litre turbocharged DDiS engine paired with a 5 speed manual gearbox. It generates 74 bhp of peak power and 190 Nm of peak torque.
On the pricing front, the Maruti Suzuki Swift DLX starts with Rs. 4.80 lakh for the petrol and likely around Rs. 6 lakh for the diesel. Maruti Suzuki is gearing up to launch the new generation Swift based Dzire sedan sometime in Q3 2017 while the hatchback can be expected in 2018. But before that, this limited edition model is expected to further boost sales of the Swift nameplate.
