Maruti Suzuki Swift RS 2018 India Launch: India’s largest car manufacturer, Maruti Suzuki is going to launch the all new Maruti Suzuki Swift RS 2018 in India most likely at Auto Expo 2018. The company started the full swing of promotions for the car. The all new Swift will be revealed on the January 18th, 2018 as part of the media drives. Along with this, Maruti Suzuki Swift RS 2018 will be launched at Auto Expo 2018.

Maruti Suzuki is considering to launch the complete Swift portfolio in the Indian market, which includes the Swift RS, Swift Hybrid and the Swift Sport. The new 2018 Swift RS is based on the same platform as that of the Maruti Baleno, Ignis and the new Dzire. While the Swift RS has been on Indian roads before as well, the RS badge added mere aesthetic updates. This gave rise to growth in Maruti’s market in India.

The new Maruti Suzuki Swift RS could be powered by the same 1.0-litre BoosterJet engine, although it would be interesting to see whether it comes in a different state of tune. Unveiled at 2017 Geneva International Motor Show, the new Swift is based on the all-new Heartect platform by Suzuki and the chassis of the hatchback is claimed to be lighter and harder than before.

Apart from bringing high levels of structural rigidity, this platform will also reduce the kerb weight of the hatchback, resulting in better fuel economy and performance. The back gets a new bumper and tail lamps, which also get the LED-touch, are now stubbier than before and incorporate a nicely tucked in the spoiler with a stop light. The engine is coupled to Suzuki’s SHVS mild hybrid system. This engine produces 110 BHP of power and 170 Nm of peak torque. Transmission options include 5-speed manual and a 6-speed AT.
