New Maruti Suzuki Swift 2017 Design

The Maruti Swift 2017 is lighter than the current Swift. It is based on a new platform, hence the weight is reduced. The current Baleno, which is bigger than the Swift itself weighs about 900 kilograms. So, the new Swift will be even lighter. Design wise the Swift 2017 is an evolution over the current car. The basic design architecture is similar but gets a lot of enhancement in styling. Suzuki Swift has been a big success for the company and they will not want to make changes to the design.

The curved front, sloping roof the rear look remain similar. The rear now looks somewhat similar to the Datsun Go. This is the Swift design DNA, which Suzuki do not want to change. The new Swift looks sharper and aggressive. It will get daytime running LEDs and projector headlamps for the first time. The Maruti Swift 2017 will be more contemporary than ever before.

The side profile remains similar to the current Swift. There isn’t a major change in the dimensions of the Maruti Swift 2017. It will get 16-inch alloy wheels for the first time, though only in higher variants. The lower variants will get 15-inch wheels. The tyres will have a profile of 195/60 on the higher spec model. Despite the same dimensions, the Maruti Swift 2017 has more room on the inside. This makes it an even better package than before. The exterior styling is new and fresh, yet it still has the Swift design DNA in it.

Maruti Swift 2017 Interiors

The Maruti Swift 2017  has better space at the rear because of a bit longer wheelbase. The Maruti Swift 2017 shall offer more knee room and head room for rear passengers too. The boot space will also be more than the current one. In terms of quality, we don’t know much as we haven’t seen the hatchback. The increased wheelbase will help to improve the rear seat space, especially the knee room. The Maruti Swift 2017 will come loaded with features like touchscreen system with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and MirrorLink. There will be dual airbags and ABS as a standard feature. The cabin quality will be better than the current one and also feel more premium.

In other markets, Suzuki is providing Dual Camera Brake Support. This is an interesting feature when it comes to safety. In other markets, the hatchback is offered with seven airbags. The driver information system will be coloured. There shall be voice command, hill assist and ESP. Then there will be disc brakes on all the four wheels. Maruti Swift 2017 might not get all these features in India.

It’s more common like old Swift. But I more prefer to buy Suzuki baleno. It’s the best hatchback I ever ride. Her space, features, n power makes impressive. Her Phenomenal design gives best design car of the year. That’s the thing.
