Maruti may launch Swift and Dzire facelift in early 2014
Maruti Suzuki may launch the facelifted versions of the Swift hatchback and Dzire compact sedan in the first quarter of 2014. These new variants are likely to be showcased at the 2014 Indian Auto Expo.
Maruti Suzuki launched the Swift in 2005 and ever since the car has been a runaway success. In late 2011 the all-new Swift was launched which took the game even further. The Japanese carmaker has never rushed in to give their products a facelift, but stiff competition has ensured that no car company can rest on their laurels.
The Swift leads the Premium hatchback or B+ segment and the Swift Dzire also leads the compact sedan segment. The Swift and the Dzire will get updated and seems like Maruti will showcase the facelifted versions at the 2014 Indian Auto Expo, if rumours are to be believed the facelifted versions are expected to hit the showrooms by first quarter next year.
As per a report by Cartoq, the maximum changes would be exclusive only to the top-end variants aka ZXI and ZDI. The Swift family also get cruise control, all-new 16 inch alloys, revised bumpers and grille, leather wrapped steering wheel, keyless entry and a button start ignition to finish the premium feel. While all these additions to the feature list also warrant a price, we can expect a price hike in the range of Rs 50,000-60,000.
