Maruti Suzuki Swift Receives BS6 Petrol Engine, New Safety Features

Petrol-powered Swift now dearer by Rs 16,000 while diesel variants get a hike of Rs 6,000

  • Swift’s 1.2-litre K12B petrol engine now complies with BS6 norms.

  • Power and torque outputs remain the same even after the update.

  • 1.3-litre DDiS 200 diesel engine will not receive BS6 updates.

  • Additional safety features have raised prices of the diesel variants as well.

The Maruti Suzuki Swift is the latest car from the company’s lineup to receive a BS6 petrol engine ahead of the April 2020 deadline. The other two cars that have received the update recently are the Alto and the Baleno. The Swift gets the same 1.2-litre K12B 4-cylinder petrol engine as the Baleno.

The updates to the engine haven’t affected its performance figures as it continues to produce 83PS of power and 113Nm of torque as before. It is rated to deliver 21.21kmpl with both the 5-speed manual as well as AMT.

Meanwhile, Maruti has decided not to update the 1.3-litre DDiS200 engine for the latest emission norms as the company has already announced that it will stop selling diesel cars from April 2020 onwards.

Apart from the engine update, the Swift has also received some new features like a co-driver seatbelt reminder, a speed alert system and rear parking sensors. These are now available on all variants of the Swift.

The subsequent increase in prices of the Swift are as follows:
