The older version of this car was among the top selling premium hatchbacks in the country. This new version might come up with 1.2 L petrol and 1.3 L diesel engine in the market. The car as said will be longer that its elder sibling but smaller than the Maruti Swift Dzire. The car will deliver a better mileage. Several steps have been taken to increase the mileage of the car, the main stress is laid on the weight of the car. To reduce the weight the metal fuel tank is replaced with the plastic fuel tank. This will improve the mileage of the car to about 13%. Apart from this the new plastic fuel tank in the car is about 30-35% lighter in weight as compared to the metal fuel tank, and are also corrosion-free, durable, non-explosive and easily recyclable.

This will be the first major change that will come in the car after it was launched in the year 2005. The price of this new hatchback is not yet revealed by the company. As per speculations the new Swift will be manufactured at the Manesar plant in Haryana.

New plastic fuel tank may give more fuel efficiency but what about the wear & tear - breakage resistant which more concern about the safety of the user. Please explain the plastic material quality defnition through the media. Price and other upgraded features on the new model maruti swift which needs to be competitive with other brands / models of the same car group.

Asked By BHATHAL SS 13 Jul,2011 12:05:50 PM

New maruti swift looks good, shall be excelent if it gives the promised mileage,But they have blundered by providing plastic fuel tank.The tank shall be susceptible to leakage incase the car hits a ramp or high object,certainly the tank shall not last the life of the car.I am a maruti user since 1988 and was waiting for the new model of swift,but now I have started looking for another brand.

Asked By rkjain 13 Jul,2011 12:10:56 PM

I read in the Newspaper Mail Today of 09.07.2011 that Maruti is coming with Swift Automatic Transmission, where as I contacted 2-3 dealers in Delhi and they denied having introduced Automatic Transmission model. Can any body confirm the information as i wanted to book an automatic transmission Swift.

Asked By CarDekho Team 13 Jul,2011 12:14:53 PM

There is a possibility of the new Swift having a automatic varient, we would know only at its launch in August.

Regarding issue of this plastic tank,I don't think, the most selling car company in India- Maruti- is going to impliment a 'life threatening modification' in it's product.They must have done proper research before the proposal.

Asked By sahil bajaj 13 Jul,2011 05:48:53 PM

Asked By somajigoma 13 Jul,2011 06:43:05 PM

plastic petrol tank to decrease the weight? then why not plastic body and perhaps plastic engine plastic ac and everything else plastic so that the weight will be so low that perhaps it will sail without any fuel? maruti is known for its poor quality chassis doors and what not! many of us curse the maruti cars all substandard third grade(AS THERE IS NO FOURTH OR FIFTH GRADE DISCOVERED YET) products as compared to hondas ,general motors toyota and hyundai.

Asked By Ranjeet 13 Jul,2011 08:37:28 PM

Maruti Suzuki is known for light weight product which deliver more mileage, which is what we Indians ask a Dealer, rather than asking how strong it is built? Will my family be safe in an accident? What is the thickness of metal used? The best built cars in India have poor after sales service (Fiat Palio, Opel Corsa, etc.). Either go for a car that is high on mileage with compromise in its build or go for a car with heavy build and less mileage. Choice is for the buyer, which one to buy.

Well, seems nice. If Maruthi brings down price with Volks Wagen this will fetch market other wise will be a flop. As far as Southern states VW has fetch the market as PoLO is a good car on their price.
