Maruti Suzuki likely to introduce CNG variant of Swift in the coming months; Here’s what to expect

Maruti Suzuki plans to introduce a CNG option for the newly introduced fourth-generation Swift in India in the coming months.

A new 1.2-litre, three-cylinder, naturally aspirated Z12E petrol engine with 112Nm of torque and 82 horsepower has been added to the 2024 Maruti Swift. The Swift is the first Maruti Suzuki vehicle in India to be equipped with this new engine, which comes with a 5-speed manual gearbox and an optional 5-speed AMT.

Like every other Maruti Suzuki Arena vehicle, the Swift will soon be available with CNG, making it the first vehicle to use the new engine in a CNG configuration. The petrol-CNG powertrain will produce significantly less power and torque in pure CNG mode and will probably be offered only with a manual gearbox.

2024 Maruti Swift CNG Expected Price

The new Swift is presently priced between Rs 6.49 lakh and Rs 9.64 lakh (ex-showroom), with CNG models estimated to cost around Rs 90,00-95,000 more than similar petrol variants. It remains to be seen which models will be provided with the CNG engine.

2024 Maruti Swift CNG Efficiency

The new Swift has a fuel economy of 24.80kpl with the manual gearbox and a class-leading 25.75kpl with the auto gearbox. The Swift CNG is predicted to have a mileage of over 32 km/kg.
