Helping customers ease the pain of car ownership, Maruti Suzuki is all set to introduce CNG version of its successful hatchback Swift in the country. This long overdue update will help the company create a rejuvenated interest for the car in the budget hatchback segment.

Maruti Suzuki Swift CNG: Changes

Like its petrol counterpart, the Swift CNG will share powertrain components with the Dzire CNG. The hatchback will continue to come powered by the familiar 1.2-liter Dual-Jet VVT motor producing 75bhp and 98.5 Nm of torque. The system will come mated to a 5-speed manual transmission and will return a claimed fuel economy of 32 to 35 km/kg. The additional CNG tank will eat into the four-wheeler’s 268 litres boot space and increase the kerb weight of the vehicle.
