Looking at the competition present in the Indian market, car makers are launching facelifted versions of their cars that already exist in the market. This competition mostly prevails in the sedan segment and the hatchback segment. The facelifted versions of Maruti Suzuki Swift Dzire and Swift will be launched by India’s largest carmaker in 2014. Maruti Suzuki is expected to showcase the car at the 2014 Indian Auto Expo.
Other car manufacturers like Hyundai will also be launching cars in 2014 that belong to the sedan segment, like the Grand i10 sedan. The competition is already getting tough with cars like Honda Amaze in the market, which are doing exceptionally well. Suzuki was motivated by this trend to launch the Swift Dzire facelift version as the car had already been ruling the segment earlier.
International markets like Europe and Japan have already seen the launch of the facelifted version of the Swift early this year. The new hatchback is said to feature new bumpers in the front, fog lamps, LED daytime running lights and also LED stop lamps. The top variant of the car is also said to offer 16-inch alloy wheels. An additional color option of Boost Blue Pearl will also be offered to the customers.
Though the car will see new upholstery, the interiors will remain more or less the same. The car might have an Auto-UP touch function at the driver’s window, adjustable side mirrors and automatic headlamps. The car is said to be powered by a 1.3-litre Multi-Jet engine or a 1.2-litre petrol engine. In addition to these cars, the company will also launch cars in the compact SUV segment, hatchback segment and the mid sized sedan segment.
