2021 Maruti Suzuki Swift Facelift Engine Update
The car comes with a new K12N DualJet engine. Along with the increase in power from 7 hp to 90 hp (torque remains the same at 113 Nm as in the previous model), the 1.2-liter four-cylinder petrol engine also comes with idle start and stop technology, which will help increase the engine’s power and economy.
