We are barely two weeks into 2021 and it is already starting to get more and more exciting by the minute. Hold on, we will explain. You see, we have just learned that one of the most popular cars in India, i.e. the Maruti Suzuki Swift, will receive a facelift and that too mighty soon! Yep, our source confirms the 2021 Maruti Suzuki Swift facelift’s India launch is scheduled for the second week of February 2021. They also confirmed the company will launch 6-7 Maruti Suzuki cars in the next financial year. But let’s talk about the upcoming Maruti Suzuki car first — it was also spotted on a test run in India fairly recently, meaning the launch really is round the corner.
The facelifted model, which has been available for retail in international markets since 2020, will feature largely cosmetic updates. The list of changes will include a revised fascia which will now get a revised radiator grille. The upcoming car in India will also be offered with an optional dual-tone exterior colour option in its 2021 avatar. Besides that, we don’t expect to see the car’s exterior to feature any other changes.

As for the cabin — if the model retailed globally is anything to go by, then the new Maruti Suzuki Swift 2021’s interior will not feature major changes. This means it will retain the current model’s all-black interior, flat-bottom steering wheel, climate control, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support, dual airbags, ABS with EBD, etc.
Maruti Suzuki Swift 2021 facelift is expected to come powered by the same 1.2-litre Dualjet petrol engine that also does duty on the current Maruti Suzuki Dzire. This motor belts out a maximum power of 89 bhp along with a peak torque of 113 Nm. For transmission, Maruti Suzuki will offer this engine with a choice between a five-speed manual gearbox and a five-speed AMT. Oh, and there will be no Maruti Suzuki Swift diesel in the range.
