Maruti Suzuki has revealed a news which will is not so good for the people waiting for the launch of the new Maruti Swift 2011. While the new model of Swift 2011 is already available in UK by Suzuki, but its not yet lunched in India. As per the latest news the new model of Suzuki swift will be launched in India towards the end of year 2011, which means its another one year to go from now. This delay is mainly due to the reorientation of the production facilities of Maruti Swift and Maruti Swift Dzire between the Gurgaon and Manesar plants of Maruti. This change will take place near the mid of year 2011 and the production of the new upgraded versions of Swift 2011 will start in India towards the end of the year 2011.
Suzuki has revealed the engine options for the 2011 Swift, a new 1.2l VVT engine petrol producing 93 bhp and the existing Fiat sourced Mutijet 1.3 DDiS diesel would be powering the Swift. CVT automatic transmissions would also be offered.
For India, the 1.2l K-series engine producing 84 bhp and the 1.3l DDiS diesel would stay. Maruti Suzuki India could also bring the VVT 1.2l engine. Maruti would be skeptical about offering an automatic tranny on the new Swift but we expect it could follow months after the car’s launch.
