The India-spec fourth-generation Maruti Suzuki Swift misses out a host of features and technologies that are available in the international market-spec version of the hatchback.

The fourth-generation Maruti Suzuki Swift finally entered the Indian market in May this year after much hype around it. The upmarket hatchback comes with a wide range of updates on design, features and powertrain front, which makes it more stylish, utility-focused and a better performer as well. While the international market-spec Suzuki Swift hatchback gets a wide range of technological upgrades such as a hybrid powertrain along with the new downsized three-cylinder petrol motor, the Indian version misses out a few bits.

No ADAS suite for India-spec Maruti Suzuki Swift

A big miss for the India-spec Maruti Suzuki Swift is the ADAS suite, which is available in the global market-spec model. The international market-spec Swift gets a radar-based Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) suite that includes features such as a collision mitigation system, lane departure warning, and adaptive cruise control. However, the ADAS suite has been skipped altogether on the Indian market-spec Maruti Suzuki Swift.

Global market-spec Swift offers more features

The India-spec Maruti Suzuki Swift misses out on a few features, which are available in the international market. While the India-spec hatchback gets a host of new features compared to its predecessor, including a nine-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a wireless phone charger and six airbags as standard, it misses out on heated front seats and heated ORVMs. Also, the global market-spec Swift gets a dual-tone black and white interior, while the India-spec model gets an all-black theme with silver accents. The stitching on the seat fabric inside the India-spec and international market-spec Swifts are of different patterns as well.

India-spec Swift misses hybrid powertrain

One of the key upgrades made to the fourth-generation Swift is the addition of a hybrid powertrain. The international market-spec Swift comes with a 12V electric motor aided by a battery pack paired with the 1.2-litre three-cylinder petrol engine. However, the same hybrid powertrain was skipped from the India-spec model’s powertrain setup. Besides that, the India-spec model gets transmission choices of a five-speed manual gearbox and five-speed AMT, while the global market-spec model gets a five-speed manual unit and five-speed CVT automatic with paddle shifters.
