As visible from the table, the Swift facelift has received a price hike of up to Rs 25,000, over the pre-facelift variant. For this added premium, it gets various cosmetic updates along with additional features and a new more powerful engine.

In terms of design, the most noticeable change comes at the front. It gets a new honeycomb finish front grille with a thick chrome element underlining the Suzuki logo. It replaces the horizontally slatted grille found on the pre-facelift model. The side and rear profiles have remained largely unchanged save for slightly updated tail lamps. 

Maruti has also introduced three dual-tone exterior colours with the Swift facelift: Solid Fire Red with a Midnight Black roof, Arctic White with and Midnight Black roof and Midnight Blue with Arctic White roof. Six single-tone colours on offer include Solid Fire Red, Pearl Arctic White, Silky Silver, Magma Grey, Midnight Blue and Lucent Orange. 

On the inside, while the cabin layout remains identical to the pre-facelift model, it gets updated upholstery. Maruti has also introduced a new music system in the lower variants of the Swift facelift while in the higher variants, it gets additional features like cruise control, auto-folding ORVMs and a coloured MID. Other features remain identical to the pre-facelift model including auto LED headlamps, rain-sensing wipers, alloy wheels, auto AC, parking camera, front fog lamps, push-button start, tilt-adjustable steering and a height-adjustable driver’s seat. 

Safety features on offer include dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, rear parking sensors and ISOFIX child seat anchors. The Swift facelift also gets hill hold assist and electronic stability program but they are limited to the AMT variants only. 

Under the hood, the facelifted Swift gets the new K12N 1.2-litre petrol engine which debuted on the Baleno and Dzire facelift. It replaces the K12M petrol engine found on the outgoing Swift. While in the Baleno this engine is paired to a mild hybrid system, on the Dzire facelift, it is equipped with an idle start-stop system.

On the Swift facelift, it is offered with an idle start-stop system. It makes 89PS of power and 113Nm of peak torque, 6PS more than the K12M unit. Transmission options are unchanged as it continues to get a 5-speed MT and a 5-speed AMT. Thanks to this new K12N engine, the Swift facelift will be more frugal than the outgoing model.
