New Maruti Swift Petrol Delivers 20KMPL Certified By ARAI

New Maruti Swift Petrol Delivers 20KMPL

Even as Maruti celebrates the production of a million K-Series engines, there is yet another K-Series engine that car buyers eagerly anticipate. The K-Series engine we’re talking about here is the 1.2 Liter unit with dual VVT. VVT, an acronym for variable valve timing is a technology that is soon used by petrol engines worldwide to improve both performance as well as fuel efficiency.

Team ICB, brought you the news about dual VVT technology making it to the 1.2 Liter engine of the new Swift Petrol, that is all set to be launched in August this year. The engine uses variable valve technology for both the intake as well as the exhaust valves, thus pushing the maximum power output by 10 Bhp, to 90 Bhp, even as fuel economy improves.

Today, we have some more news emanating that the 1.2 Liter, 90 Bhp engine would be good for a a whopping 20 KMPL. which isn’t too unfathomable as the K-Series range of engines have known to be very driveable as well as fuel efficient. So, if indeed the new Swift manages an ARAI certified fuel economy figure of 20 KMPL, that would make the car the most fuel efficient B segment hatchback in the country, bettering the 18 KMPL+ figure that Toyota claims for the Etios Liva.

Also, the new Swifts will feature plastic fuel tanks that are 25-35% lighter than the conventional metal fuel tanks. This also is set to aid fuel economy as overall weight of the car decreases with a lighter fuel tank. Maruti estimates the fuel economy gain to be a whopping 15%  due to the new fuel tanks alone.

We aren’t done with the good news yet. The 1.3 Multijet diesel engine raises the bar further with a stellar 23.8 KMPL mileage figure which is outstanding to say the least. So, the new Swift indeed looks like rewarding its prospective buyer who has been waiting all along for the car, despite the many delays the new Swift has had to face, right from the Japanese Tsunami to labour trouble at Maruti’s Manesar plant.
