Maruti Suzuki India today announced a price hike of up to Rs 15,000 for the Swift and all the CNG models. The prices have been increased due to a rise in various input costs. The new prices are effective from today.
The country’s largest carmaker had launched the Maruti Suzuki Swift facelift in February 2021 in the price range of Rs 5,73,000 to Rs 8,41,000 (ex-showroom, Delhi). The 2021 Swift gets an all-new mesh grille, new key-synchronized auto-foldable ORVMs and fresh dual-tone exterior colour options. The updates inside the cabin include a new 4.2-inch coloured MID and cruise control feature.
The Swift facelift employs the next-gen 1.2-litre K-Series Dual-Jet Dual-VVT petrol engine, which boasts idle start-stop technology. The engine delivers 90PS of maximum power and 113Nm of peak torque, and can be paired either with a 5-speed MT or a 5-speed AMT. Features like electronic stability program and hill hold assist are standard in the 2021 Swift AMT.
Among the models sold by Maruti Suzuki India with a factory-fitted CNG kit are the Alto, S-Presso, Celerio, WagonR, Eeco and Ertiga.
