The introduction of the AMT system – auto gear shift (AGS) – in the top-end variants of the new-gen Swift hatchback has been announced by Maruti Suzuki.
Both the petrol and diesel versions of the third-gen Maruti Suzuki Swift – the ZXI+ and ZDI+ – now boast an automatic option. While the ZXI+ is priced at Rs 7.76 lakh, the ZDI+ costs Rs 8.76 lakh (both prices ex-showroom, Delhi).
