The car is built on the new 'Heartect' platform that makes it lighter and more rigid than the previous model.

The Swift is available in both petrol (LXI/LDI, VXI/VDI, ZXI/ZDI) and diesel (ZXI+/ZDI+) variants.

The 1.2-litre K-Series engine produces 82 bhp and 182 Nm of peak torque.

The diesel model comes with 1.3-litre DDIS engine that generates 74 bhp and 190 Nm of peak torque. A 5-speed manual transmission will be offered on both models the added option to go in for an auto gear shift (AGS) or an AMT unit.
