New Maruti Swift DZire 2017 Engine
The weight of the new car has been reduced by around 100 kilograms. This makes it lighter and faster. The engines have also undergone a change. The 1.2-litre petrol engine is the same 84bhp one but the diesel will be a new 1.2-litre mill. As there is an increase in the demand for petrol cars, Maruti could get the SHVS on it. There will be a five-speed AMT also on the petrol engine this time around.
The car will have better performance due to its light weight. The drivability will be good too. The engine has good enough torque to drive in comfort and even to overtake on highways with ease. The new Maruti Swift DZire 2017 will have more power. There will be the same 5-speed manual transmission. Maybe, there could be a six-speed manual on the diesel, but we aren’t sure yet.
