Maruti Suzuki Swift fourth generation booking starts

Maruti Suzuki India is going to launch the facelift version of its most popular car Swift in India on 9 May 2024. Seeing people's inclination towards the car, some Maruti Arena dealerships have started taking offline bookings for it. The new Swift will be one of the major launches for Maruti this year. After this, the company will launch the new Dezire compact sedan in the market later this year.

According to media reports, the next generation Swift codenamed YED will come with advanced safety features like ADAS with 6 air bags compared to the current model. Maruti's parent company Suzuki Motor Corporation unveiled the fourth generation Swift at the Auto Motor Show in Tokyo, Japan.

Transmission details of the new Swift have not been revealed yet, but it is expected that it will have the option of 5-speed manual and AMT gearbox. At the same time, it can also be offered with CNG and hybrid engine options.
