The country's largest carmaker Maruti Suzuki India (MSI) will launch the all-new version of its popular hatchback Swift at the upcoming Auto Expo. The bookings for the new Swift, based on Suzuki's 5th generation HEARTECT platform, have been opened.

The model will be available in both petrol and diesel engine options. While the petrol variant will have a 1.2-litre engine, the diesel option is powered by a 1.3-litre engine, the company said. The new version is wider and has longer wheel base with more cabin space, headroom and luggage space than the current generation car.

The company said the all-new Swift is 40 mm wider with 20 mm longer wheel base. The luggage space has been increased by 58 litres, around 28 per cent more than the second generation Swift and around 24 mm more headroom, it added. MSI Senior Executive Director (Marketing and Sales) R S Kalsi said: "The all-new Swift with its distinctive design, advanced technology, uplifting performance and enduring driver experience will bring disruption in the premium hatchback segment." In its newest avatar, the Swift undergoes a bold transformation to meet the aspiration of the young and ever changing customer, he added.

"We are delighted to open bookings for the all-new Swift and look forward to a grand launch at the Auto Expo 2018," Kalsi said. The Swift is among the most successful models of Maruti Suzuki and it continues to feature among the top five best selling cars in India for over a decade. Since its launch in May 2005, the Swift has sold 17.8 lakh units.
