The Maruti Suzuki Swift is one of the most popular hatchbacks in India, known for its peppy performance, spacious cabin and fuel efficiency. The Swift has been updated for 2023 with some new features and changes to comply with the latest emission norms. Here’s what you need to know about the 2023 Maruti Suzuki Swift BS6 Phase 2.
BS6 Phase 2 Compliance
The biggest change in the 2023 Swift is that it is now compliant with the BS6 Phase 2 Real Driving Emissions (RDE) norms, which came into effect on April 1, 2023. This means that the Swift has to meet the emission standards not only in laboratory tests, but also in real-world driving conditions. To achieve this, the Swift comes with an On Board Diagnostic (OBD) system that monitors the real-time emission levels and alerts the driver if there is any malfunction.
The Swift is powered by a 1.2-litre Dualjet petrol engine that produces 90PS of power and 113Nm of torque. The engine is paired with either a 5-speed manual transmission or a 5-speed AMT. The Swift also offers a CNG option with the same engine, which delivers 77.5PS of power and 98.5Nm of torque. The Swift also features an idle start/stop function to improve fuel efficiency.
