auto news desk, Maruti Suzuki Swift has been one of the best selling models of the brand since its inception. In the last month i.e. March (2023) it was the best selling car in India. First released in 2005, the Swift is now in its third generation. The current generation of Swift was released in 2017. In 2024, it will now move to a new generation. Testing of the new generation Swift continues, with its global debut expected later this year. However, the fourth generation Swift can be launched in India next year. But, before the launch, some information about the engine of 2024 Maruti Swift was leaked.
1.0L Boosterjet Engine Options
According to media reports, apart from the existing 1.2-litre petrol engine, the 2024 Maruti Suzuki Swift may also get the option of a 1.0-litre Boosterjet engine. This will be the first time in the Swift’s history in India that it will get a turbocharged engine. However, Maruti’s 1.0L turbo engine is nothing new in India. It was first introduced in 2017 on the Baleno RS. But it was discontinued due to low sales. Now, with the growing demand for more powerful cars in the entry-level segment, Maruti felt it was the right time to introduce the Boosterjet 1.0 engine in its cars.
1.0L Boosterjet Engine Power & Performance
Now Maruti Suzuki is mounting its 1.0L Boosterjet engine in the assembly. This 3-cylinder engine produces 100 hp power and 147.6 Nm torque. It will soon be seen in the French crossover coupe, with the engine getting a choice of 5-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission. This engine does well at that. In such a situation, it is expected that it will perform much better on Swift as Swift will also be lighter than Franks.
New Generation Maruti Swift Tested
Apart from Swift, this new turbo engine can also be seen in other Maruti cars like Baleno and Jimny in future. The Swift with a turbocharged gasoline engine is not new. In fact, the Swift Turbo has been present in Europe for quite some time now. There, the Swift Sport gets the larger Boosterjet 1.4L engine. Well, the testing of the new generation Maruti Swift has already started in Europe and Japan. The next-generation Swift will retain its overall design silhouette, but several changes will be made to differentiate the new model from the existing model.
