One of the most notable upgrades in the new-gen Swift is the introduction of a new powertrain. The previous 1.2-litre 4-cylinder K12 petrol engine has been replaced by a new 1.2-litre 3-cylinder Z series petrol mill.
Engine Codename and Hybrid Option
This new powertrain is codenamed Z12E. Additionally, it will be available with a mild hybrid setup for enhanced efficiency.
Recent reports have unveiled the fuel efficiency figures for the new-gen Swift. The non-hybrid version of the new engine claims a mileage of 23.4 kmpl, while the mild-hybrid variant can achieve 24.5 kmpl.
Transmission options for the new-gen Swift include a 5-speed manual gearbox for the non-hybrid motor. The mild-hybrid powertrain will exclusively feature a CVT automatic gearbox.
Current Swift's Mileage
The current India-spec Swift equipped with the DualJet petrol engine has a claimed mileage of 22.38 kmpl for the manual variant and 22.56 kmpl for the AMT variant. These figures can be compared with the reported mileage figures for the new-gen Swift.
