Of late, the second largest car manufacturer in the country Hyundai has revamped its i10, i20 and Elantra and they look completely brand new.
When all car makers are going for a face lift of their popular cars, can Maruti Suzuki be far behind? After giving back to back successes with Baleno and Ciaz, India’s largest car producer went for a face lift of its popular product, Swift. Launched decades back, Swift has already experienced a face lift a few years back.
The 2017 Suzuki Swift has a radical exterior and a sporty interior, car experts claim. The car is expected to be launched in India late this year or early next year.
Look wise, the car stands out from its older generation. However the car is expected to be powered by the same 1.2-liter petrol and 1.3-liter diesel engine as the current car. Built on the same platform of Baleno, the chassis will be a bit lighter and give an edge to the fuel economy that Maruti is always known for.
As the photos of new Swift Started doing around in the internet, car experts and enthusiasts somehow felt the new Swift looks copied from other cars.
It’s not the first time that Maruti Suzuki is facing this allegation. When Alto 800, the low priced car of ambitious Indian middle class was launched in 2012, the car’s front bumper, headlights, and front grill resembled that of old Ford Figo.
And now the allegation is on Swift according to the Faisal Khan, Editor, MotorBeam.com
“The 2017 Maruti Swift does remind me of many cars as the design of India’s best selling hatchback gets evolved in its third generation. The front grille reminds me of the Jaguar F-Type while the hood in similar to the Fiat Punto Evo and the headlights have a similar flow as the Hyundai Elite i20. The side seems to be inspired from the MINI Cooper while the rear will surely confuse people with Toyota Etios Liva but we can see the design has been influenced from Suzuki’s own Baleno hatchback.
“The design of the rear door handles are similar to the Chevrolet Beat.
That’s a lot of cars in the new Maruti Swift.”
So Maruti Suzuki fans who are planning o drive the all new 2017 Swift would be able to experience at least 5 cars in one go! That’s incredible!
