The next-gen 2017 Swift will be based on Suzuki's new platform, which made it debut with the Baleno. The new platform is lightweight, when compared to the current version. It will help the upcoming Swift to become more fuel efficient, with improved structural strength and stiffness.

The new generation is likely to get projector headlamps, a touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay, steering mounted controls, a multi-information display and a lot more. Also, since safety norms are getting stricter by the day, we expect the Swift to feature dual airbags and ABS across trims as well.

It is expected that Maruti Suzuki will carry forward the 1.2-liter VVT motor. This said, we might get the Dualjet version, which is slightly more powerful. There is a possibility that it might also get the Boosterjet in India.

Verdict - The next gen Swift is expected to launch in second half of 2017, if you are not in a hurry for a car purchase and particular with Swift and finicky on getting only a newer generation, then only option is to wait.

Coming to the Ignis - The Ignis is definitely a very eye-catching design, but looks are a matter of personal choice. The Ignis is likely to be offered with a 1.0-litre BoosterJet petrol engine and will be mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. With respect to diesel offering, there’s still no official word but it could be added at a later stage. Another option is to check out the Ignis which is coming this festive season.
