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?

    Rivalry can be quite fun for the spectators. It's even more fun when big brands take a dig at their rivals in a direct manner. Tata motors has released an ad for their Altroz premium hatchback based on the Halloween theme, which takes a dig at the soon to be launched Hyundai i20. 

                Tata Motors have been running an all new 2020 Halloween Campaign using their cars. However, one particular ad with the Altroz directly takes a hit on the upcoming rival, 2020 Hyundai i20. This short video has a caption too, “You Can I the Trick 20 Times , but

    it’s the treat that you fall for” which is directly mentions the upcoming i20. The car is even wrapped in the video to show that it is yet to be launched. In simple terms, they are referring to the i20 as a trick with loads of features and the Altroz as a treat. Hyundai i20 is all set to become the most feature loaded car in the segment once launched next week in India. 

             Hyundai has also responded to this ad from Tata with a short video along with the caption, “The darkness has found a new treat. This is no trick. The all-new i20 is all set to treat you with its sleek style and thrilling performance. Stay tuned.”

    The 2020 Hyundai i20 will be launched in India on 5th November, 2020. Bookings for the new premium hatchback have already commenced in India and a considerable amount of details of the new i20 are already out on the internet. It will be loaded with features and compete against the Tata Altroz with two petrol engines and one diesel engine. The Altroz is a strong product too, with best in class safety credentials and handling. It remains to be seen how both the hatchbacks perform in real world, as well as in terms of sales.


    Ford Motor Company and Mahindra & Mahindra have dissolved their joint venture that was announced in October 2019.  In the official statements issued separately by Ford and Mahindra, both automakers have mutually decided to part ways and function as separate entities.

    Overview

    On the 1st of October 2019, Ford India and Mahindra had signed an agreement in Mumbai to create a joint venture that will develop, market and distribute Ford vehicles in India along with Mahindra vehicles in high-growth emerging markets overseas. The JV was to see Mahindra having the 51 percent controlling stake and Ford owning a 49 percent stake. Ford

    was to transfer its India operations to the JV, including its personnel and assembly plants in Chennai and Sanand. Ford was to retain the Ford engine plant operations in Sanand as well as the Global Business Services unit, Ford Credit and Ford Smart Mobility. The JV was planned to be the next step in the strategic alliance forged between both brands back in September 2017.

    The main aim of the joint venture was to grow the Ford brand in India and export its products to Ford entities globally. Both manufacturers were to share components, platforms, technology and engineering capabilities on their new cars.

    Reason for dissolving:

    According to the companies, the reasons to call off this JV were “Fundamental changes in global economic and business conditions; caused, in part, by the global pandemic over the past 15 months.”

    Upcoming products:

    Ford has already been developing its next big launch, the new C-SUV ( C757) based on the next-gen  Mahindra XUV500 (W601). This new SUV was already planned for an early-2022 launch. Therefore, it's likely that Ford will enter into a contract manufacturing arrangement with Mahindra to build the C-SUV in its Chakan plant. Ford is also likely to source the 1.2L TGDI engine from Mahindra for the upgraded 2021 Ecosport compact SUV. The Ford C-SUV too will use the same 2-litre petrol and 2.2 diesel engines that will power the next XUV500.

    Stay tuned for further updates.


    Tata Motors’ new premium hatchback, the Altroz has successfully established itself among Indian car buyers since it's launch in January 2020. The standard Altroz is available with either a 1.2L Revotron Naturally aspirated 3 cylinder petrol or a 1.5L Revotorq 4 cylinder turbo diesel engine. The 86PS petrol engine is fine for average users, however it’s definitely not enough for the enthusiasts.

         The turbo petrol version of the Tata Altroz is expected to be launched on the 13th of January 2021.

    Here are the details on the new Altroz turbo petrol:

    • Will be available with a 1.2L Revotron 3 cyl turbo
