The Maruti Suzuki Swift was the second most sold hatchback with a dispatch total of 18,753 units as against 8,898 units in April 2022 with a massive YoY sales surge of 111 per cent.

It will have a thoroughly revised exterior and a more premium interior packed with new features and technologies. More importantly, it will be equipped with a brand new 1.2L strong hybrid petrol engine, which will reportedly deliver a claimed fuel economy of 35-40 kmpl. Similar updates will be applied to its sedan sibling, the Dzire, as well.
