New Maruti Suzuki Swift 2011 Launch Date, Full Specification, Features, Price Range, Fuel Efficiency, Wallpapers, Pictures, Photos

Estimated price:Rs 4.5-6.5lakh
Expected Launch :- August/September 2011

The new Swift is now bigger in dimensions with 90mm in length, 5mm in width and 10mm in height increments done. The wheelbase has been stretched by 50mm and the inclination for the roof has got a decline. The headlamp and tail lamps have been peeled back a little bit more on the new Swift.

The car will be sold at launch with a choice between a 1.2-liter WT petrol engine, and a 1.3-liter DDIS diesel. The four-cylinder 16-valve petrol unit produces 93 horsepower (69 kW / 94 PS) and up to 118 Nm (87 ft-lb) of torque. Alternatively, the direct injection diesel, also a 16V four-banger, produces 74 horsepower (55 kW / 75 PS) and up to 190 Nm (140 ft-lb) of torque. Petrol buyers get a choice between a five-speed manual transmission or a four-speed automatic, while the diesel only comes with the manual.

The 3,850-millimeter long car is 1,695-mm wide and 1,510-mm high (151.57" x 66.73" x 59.45"), and has a wheelbase of 2,430 mm (95.67"). This means the car is 2.5-percent longer, with a 40-mm longer wheelbase, providing both more legroom and more cargo space. Hopefully, this will not detract from the Swift's small car charm.

Still, the car's scant kerb weight ranges from 945 kg to 1110 kg, depending on the transmission and added options. By keeping the weight low, the relatively petrol engine and manual transmission get the three- and five-door to 100 km/h in 12.3 seconds. Add 0.4 seconds to the time with the diesel, or 1.2 seconds with the automatic transmission. All of the manual transmission cars top out at 165 km/h, while the automatic models peak at 160 hp.

To help increase fuel efficiency, the petrol engine with a manual transmission will likely get a start/stop system. Without start/stop, fuel economy on the petrol ranges from 5.0- to 5.5-liters of fuel per 100 km (47 to 43 mpg), while the diesel gets a combined 4.2 liters of fuel per 100 km (56 mpg). This leads to CO2 emissions ranging from 109 to 126 grams per km.
