Let's talk about Maruti Suzuki Swift DZire 2017 a sort of sedan whose design just make us go crazy when it comes to beauty and originality. The Suzuki Swift is a compact car produced since 1983. It was presented at the Tokyo Motor Show in 1983 as the Suzuki Cultus. The first generation, reserved only for the American, Asian and Australian markets was available in 4 variants. For many years the cars were also sold under the brands Chevrolet, Holden, Pontiac, Geo, Maruti and Pak, through numerous joint ventures made with General Motors.

The images of this new model have been leaked on the web in mid-March 2016. The sixth-generation Swift debuted in Japan on 27 December 2016. The European version debuted at the 87th Geneva Motor Show in March 2017 and is available for sale on the market from 13 May 2017.

The new generation is a centimeter shorter than the previous model, three centimeters lower and four centimeters wider. The dimensions for the wheelbase are of 2,450 mm, length of 3,840 mm, width of 1,735 mm and height of 1,495 mm.

The car is built on the Heartect platform which made its debut in 2015 and is the same platform used for the production of Suzuki Baleno and Ignis. Through the use of a lighter and modified platform derived from that of Baleno, the weight has been reduced to little more than 900 kg. Built now only in five-door version, the rear door handles are contained in the rear pillar in the shape of C. Aesthetically now the Japanese car has a much wider front grille compared to the previous generation by the hexagonal geometry.

On the engine side, they are used those of Baleno, with a 1.2 liter 4-cylinder gasoline aspirated Dualjet powered by a multipoint system with 90 bhp dual injector per cylinder, and 1.0 liter 3-cylinder gasoline engine supercharged 111 hp Boosterjet Turbo. The latter can be paired with a light hybrid system called SHVS. Also it can request an automatic transmission and 6-speed manual transmission in place of the 5 series of gears and a four wheel drive system.

The Swift for the European market are assembled in Hungary in Esztergom. But to us the problem may be little, as the Swift hatchback will populate mostly the Indian roads where it will cost about INR 5.50 lakh and will be offered in both petrol and diesel version.
