With just a couple of days left before the official launch of the all-new Maruti Suzuki Swift at Auto Expo 2018, most of the details have already been revealed. What remains perhaps is its pricing. But the wait for that too could be ending with emerging reports suggesting that the new Swift hatchback will get a price tag of a premium of Rs 60,000 over the last model.

According to a report of ET Auto, the new Swift is likely to get a price tag of Rs 5.83 lakh. The prices of the other models are yet to be known. Maruti Suzuki has already announced the opening of the bookings for the new Swift and the new avatar of the hatchback seems to be in good demand. Recent reports have suggested that the waiting period for the new Maruti Suzuki Swift is climbing with the model already commanding a waiting period of up to four months.
