The buzz around the upcoming Maruti Swift facelift is growing dramatically as we are inching closer to the launch of the car in the country.

Ahead of its possible launch, the official brochures of the Swift facelift have emerged on the cyber space, giving us the mileage figures of the car. And it is interesting to know that  Maruti's new Swift avatar is set to give the best-in-class mileage.

Thanks to the folks at IndianHoods for the latest leaks. The website has posted the scanned images of Maruti Swift official brochures and as per this, the petrol facelift is tuned to deliver a fuel efficiency of 20.4kmpl, while the diesel model of Swift is expected to return 25.2kmpl.
