  • It is based on Suzuki’s latest Heartect platform, same as the Dzire, Baleno and Ingis. The new lightweight platform is the prime reason for the considerable reduction in the overall weight of the new Swift. It is also compliant with India’s upcoming crash test regulations
  • Like it is in the Maruti Dzire, both, the petrol and diesel powered versions of the Swift will be available with the option of an AMT. At least at launch, the option will be available with the V and Z variants only
