Sporty Cross Mesh Grille with Bold Chrome Accent
The new grille design on the Maruti Suzuki Swift comes with a minor tweak from the previous one and now comes with a chrome accent. On the rear fascia, you don’t get a major change. Everything is more or less the same on the back. The major thing to notice is that Swift now comes with a dual-tone offering in the top-spec variant. The colour options available include a Pearl Arctic white body with a black roof, Solid Fire red body with a black roof and a Metallic Midnight blue with a white roof.
The 2021 Maruti Suzuki Swift facelift has got few changes on the inside too. The major highlight on the interior is the coloured multi-information display and the new audio system on the VXi variant.
