Swift 2021 Latest Update - All You Need To Know


Swift 2021 Latest Update - All You Need To Know

by admin | November 07, 2020


Maruti Suzuki Swift Facelift 2021

Suzuki’s popular Swift has been around for many years. After all, the Japanese manufacturer has been giving it all the important touches and updates over time, making it seem fresh and ageless.

After its latest update in 2016, the Suzuki Swift has now been launched in Japan with many changes and we could expect to see this in India towards the last quarter of 2020. Not only are the updates just cosmetic, we expect to see some changes related to engine and performance too!

Expected Features: The new Swift won’t have too many significant changes in terms of looks. Small changes like a new grille and a redesigned front bumper could make it look like it got a much needed change but the overall look remains the same. Images also suggest a new look in terms of skirts and new alloy wheels. Auto folding ORVMs, cruise control feature, a new 4.2 inch MID colour display and new upholstery to refresh the feel inside could be a part of the new Facelifted Swift.  However, not much could be said about additions in terms of safety features as they remain the same. Electronic Stability Control and hill hold assist could new additions to the AMT variants.

 

Price:
The new facelifted Maruti Suzuki Swift is expected to cost Rs. 20,000 more than the outgoing model. So prices could start at around 5.5 Lakhs and go all the way upto Rs. 8.20 Lakhs (Ex- Showroom Delhi).

 

Engine and Performance: The new Facelifted Maruti Suzuki Swift 2021 could be launched with a 1.2-litre DualJet petrol engine as seen on the facelifted Maruti Suzuki Dzire. The new engine produces 90PS power, 7PS more than the current Swift’s petrol engine while the torque remains unchanged at 113NM. We do think that’s a good step taken towards offering more power.

In terms of fuel efficiency, we expect the new Swift to fetch similar mileage figures as the existing Maruti Suzuki Swift. Howver, the engine in question comes with an idle start-stop feature which could help improve overall fuel efficiency. Speaking of the transmission, Maruti will continue to offer the facelifted Swift the 5 speed manual and AMT gearbox. Keeping in mind the BS6 norms, there would be no diesel engine on offer in the facelifted Swift.

 

So, would the new Facelifted Maruti Suzuki Swift make you want to buy it? Or, would you consider any of the other hatchbacks in the market like the Hyundai Grand i10 Nios, Ford Figo, Ford Freestyle, Hyundai i20 and the Volkswagen Polo?

    Exterior

    The production-spec Nissan Magnite seems to retain most of the concept’s design elements including the large grille, the Sharp creases and the funky alloy wheels. It has even the same sculpted bonnet and angular headlights. Since the Magnite was originally meant to be launched as a Datsun, the grille bears resemblance to the other Datsun models.

    The side profile looks muscular with prominent body cladding and large wheel arches which seem to dwarf the 16” wheels. The higher-spec variants also receive a dual-tone roof option, blacked-out pillars, and silver roof rails. At the back, the Magnite sports sharp-looking tail lamps resemble those on the Triber's, a clean tail gate, and a dual-tone bumper. The Magnite is also set to be the first model in India to sport the new Nissan logo.

    Interior

    The interior too is quite close to the concept with a large, centrally-mounted 8” touchscreen and layered dashboard with hexagonal AC vents.

    Powertrain

    The Nissan Magnite will be available with two engine options. The first will be the 1.0L Energy series, 3 cylinder Naturally aspirated engine from the Renault Triber, producing 72PS Power through a 5 speed manual gearbox. The second powertrain will be a new HRA0 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbo-petrol unit producing around 100PS (97bhp) of power and 160Nm of torque which will be mated to a 5 speed manual transmission option as well as an X-TRONIC CVT automatic gearbox. 

    The new HRA0 1.0 3 cylinder turbocharged engine will get mirror bore cylinder coating technology from its legendary sport's car Nissan GT-R which will help to reduce the resistance inside the powertrain and also it will increase the overall efficiency of the engine.

    The XE variant will be available only with the 1.0L naturally aspirated engine.

    Pricing and launch:

    The new Nissan Magnite will be launched with pricing by early December 2020.

    The Skoda Kamiq 2021 was recently spotted testing in India and that too, without a camouflage! We like this confident approach of Skoda India, the car is going to be introduced in the country soon so, might as well reveal it anyways. Unveiled at the Geneva International Motor Show in 2019, the Kamiq is already available in global markets. The SUV shares its MQV A0 platform with the Volkswagen T-ROC. 

    Images reveal a rather nice, less flamboyant look of the Skoda Kamiq when compared to its rivals- the Hyundai Creta, Tata Harrier, Nissan Kicks, MG Hector and the Kia Seltos. The front

    houses a split LED headlamp setup with a signature butterfly shaped grille in the center while the bottom features a large air intake on the bumper. The rear profile of the car too looks balanced with elements being subtle and un-jazzy. Inverted L shaped LED tail lights and an ‘off- roady’ black cladded bumper make the Kamiq look quite nice.

    The India based Kamiq would mostly be identical in dimension when compared to the Euro- spec version as it would be a CBU unit. A few extra features that specifically cater to the European buyers would be eliminated to keep the cost as low as possible. So, one could expect the prices to hover around 12 to 20 Lakhs Ex- showroom India. 

    While the international- spec Skoda Kamiq comes with three engine options, the India spec Kamiq is expected to get the new 1.5 Litre TSI petrol engine that produces 148 BHP and 250 NM of torque. Those are good numbers, especially when you compare it to its rivals that don’t match up in this department. This engine will be mated to the creamy 7- Speed DSG gearbox. 

    The Kamiq is rumoured to be launched around the third quarter of 2021 but things would mostly depend on when the Covid-19 pandemic situation. There are no plans of Skoda or Volkwagen offering diesel powertrains yet. However, petrol engines being offered by the brands – 1.0L TSI and the 1.5L TSI offer drivers a great driving experience.

    Tata motors is getting ready to launch the new Tata Altroz turbo in the coming months. Ahead of launch, images of the Altroz turbo petrol seemed to have popped on the features and downloads section of the official website. As previewed by the Spy images, the car looks similar to the standard Altroz except for that ‘iturbo’ badge on the rear fascia next to the right side tail lamp. Apart from the new badging there seem to be no changes to the exterior.

    The Altroz turbo petrol will be offered with a 1.2-litre turbocharged Revotron 3 cylinder petrol engine that produces
