Maruti Suzuki Swift: Indian Vs Global Version


MSIL has introduced the fourth generation Swift in India with prices starting at Rs 6.49 lakh (ex-showroom) available in a total of five variants. The Swift had already gone on sale in other markets such as Japan. We will now look at all the differences between the two.


Both are almost identical except for a handful of cosmetic changes such as a different rear bumper, the alloy wheel design, the grille accents and a higher ground clearance for the Indian version. Key highlights include LED projector headlamps, boomerang-patterned daytime driving lights, C-shaped taillamps, a large octagonal-shaped grille and a shoulder line running across the car that are common traits between both the models.


While the interior layout of both is same, the global-spec gets dual-tone colour theme whereas the India-spec gets an all-black cabin with silver inserts. Common features include nine-inch touchscreen infotainment system, analogue instrument cluster with a 4.2″ MID, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, USB Type-C and Type-A ports, a wireless charging pad, cruise control, hill hold assist, connected car tech, six airbags and Electronic Stability Program (ESP).


However, the global-spec gets more features over the Indian-spec model in the form of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) such as automatic emergency braking, adaptive high beam assist, blind spot monitoring system, driver monitoring system and also 360-degree cameras, electronic parking brake with auto hold to name a few.


The new Swift introduces a new engine: 1.2-litre three-cylinder naturally aspirated ‘Z12E’ petrol unit that makes 82 HP @ 5,700 rpm and 112 N-m of torque @ 4,300 rpm. Here the motor comes mated to either a five-speed manual or an AMT while the global model gets a CVT transmission but more importantly a mild-hybrid system too.
