Maruti Udyog Introduces Swift Diesel in India

24 January 2007

Maruti Udyog Limited (MUL), Suzuki Motor’s Indian subsidiary, has unveiled the new Swift Diesel in India. The new Swift subcompact is a global car for Suzuki—designed for world markets, it is to be manufactured in Hungary, Japan, China and India. (Earlier post.)

The Swift Diesel introduced by MUL is powered by a new 56 kW (75 hp) turbocharged 1.3-liter DDiS (Diesel Direct Injection System) engine that develops 190 Nm (140 lb-ft) of torque with fuel consumption of 4.6 l/100km (51 mpg US).

The engine that powers the Swift Diesel is an improved and more powerful version of the engine that won Engine of the Year 2005 award in the 1–1.4 liter category in Europe, and is manufactured by Suzuki in India under license from Fiat and Opel.

The new engine combines a fixed geometry turbo with an intercooler. The 1,400 bar common rail injection system features 5-injection technology. An electronic control system in the engine sub-divides the principal injection into smaller multiple injections, leading to more homogeneous combustion. Combined with cooled exhaust gas recirculation, this brings emissions down to a Bharat Stage III rating (comparable to Euro 3), and cuts noise and vibration as well.

The plant is under a joint venture company—Suzuki Powertrain India Limited (SPIL)—in which Suzuki Motor holds 70% and MUL the remainder. The new facility has a capacity to manufacture 100,000 diesel engines annually, which is being scaled up to 300,000 engines.

Demand for diesel cars is growing in India, and Suzuki Motor Corporation and Maruti Udyog have made major investments in diesel facilities to serve this customer need. The Swift Diesel, a world car with a new generation diesel heart, is the best combination of performance and fuel efficiency in the Indian diesel car market.

sounds great! good job Suzuki.

I wonder if a supplemental H2 generation system (ie HyDrive) would bring this engine into Euro5/6, Tier2Bin5 compliance. Small amounts of H2 have been shown to decrease emissions in diesels, as well as increase efficiency. Regenerative braking would provide most of the electrical energy required.

This 1.25ccm diesel Swift has already been available since 2005 where I live (Hungary).

But it costs the same as a Yaris diesel. And the Yaris makes even a little better mileage.

This could make a great motorcycle engine. With that much torque, and a bike's low weight, Hayabusa-esque performance & 80-90 mpg could be achieved in the same vehicle.

Poem Comments in praise:-
MARUTI SUZUKI THE CAR THAT CARES
As the day time slowly approach
You come out to play with the sun and rain,
It’s a marvel! You emit water with sweet sound.
Rumors of being the most fuel efficient car on earth,
One of the most user friendly car,
Old folks guaranteed; five years is for you to last.

At night round the bend
In the court yard of my villa,
Moving furtively like the wind blows,
With the most dazzling light on
To the destination I know not,
May be going for a thousand miles journey.

On the day of becoming old and rusty;
The owner can’t help but to resuscitate you.
That old red color never lost its charm on you,
It’s a car for everyone; worth counted for,
A car for every occasion; worth counted for,
It is truly a responsible car.

Oh the sun has set slowly in the west,
I sat on this bench thinking
Of the time when I relish those sweet music;
Traveling in a soft and silent Maruti car.
My heart flutter with desire to drive one,
My hands twitch to touch those steering.

As I lay myself on this soft pillow to dream away
A car so strange to wonder,
What makes this car so impressive, so beautiful
So charming that makes my surrounding come alive,
A car that everyone loves.
Oh how I wish I have one
Maruti Suzuki the car that cares.

Dear Sir,
This has reference to the telcon and subsequent complaints submitted during the recent past. I would like to bring the following facts to your kind notice for the purpose of favourable action. I feel guity to complain that i am becoming unrest for having MARUTI SWIFT(Diesel) for reasons two fold.
1. With in first month it self i was to call the service person for unsatisfactory performance and
2. For a slight rise in accelerator the engine producing huge noice and u know it is just a disatisfied heart and panic mind.

3. VARUN MOTORS vijayawada is not giving proper service to me. Iam not satisfied with his service.they are not able to find out the problem.

Considering the above facts i would rather request you give a replacement i.e change of the vehicle with new one immidiately so that this would not be a hurdle for my business prospectus.

Hope that you understand the seriousness of the problem and react instantaneously.

Further I would proudly say that i am a happy customer for past 10 years having MARUTI ZEN. This greatly deteriorates my faith on MARUTI now.

TODAY I RETURN THE CAR TO THE SHOWROOM AT VIJAYAWADA VARUN MOTORS.

Solicit your speed action.

Appriciate your immidiate responce.

Thanks & Regards,
Pandu ranga Rao

Car No. UP1P-6855, Insurance Policy No. 4015170 from National Insurance

Dear All,

This is too much. Nobody is taking care of customers problem. The Maruti service center is doing whatever they want to make money and nobody can take action againt them as it has already been passed 2 months.
On 24th August we had a meeting with Mr. Abishek Anand (TSM, Maruti Regional Office, Lucknow) in Moradabad, they accept all the mistakes of Akanksha Automobile but they did only the deduction of 1400 Rs and ask to pay 28,000 Rs finally. Why we pay such a high Amt as we were not informed for the 1,00,000 Rs expenses ?
They cut my front side and changed 100% and every and every part to make high expenses. The list of parts is 116 items. Plesae find attached picture of my car. They did whatever they want to make the customer and insurance company fool.

All have already explained for the parts in my last e-mail to all of you.

The servair of insurce company is also involved to make wrong report and wrong pictures, the car was not damaged from inside as this is shown in the servaier pictures.

Mr. Abishek Anand asked to show them the old parts for re-check but Akanksha Automible could not show because they all distroyed. How they can distroy the parts when the customer greivance is not solved ?

Now I am filing a case in consumer court and sending a legal notice to National insurce, Maruti head office, Akanksha Automobile. The below compensation points will be mentioned as per below :

1. 50,000 Rs compenstaion for loosing my originality of car as the front side has been cut without my permission.

2. 50,000 Rs for metal lose

3. 25,000 Rs for misbehabe by MR. Krisna Kant (SA, Akanksha Automobile)

4. 200 Rs. Per day compensation/depriciation charges from 27th June till the case finalise in consumer

court (approx 10000 to 15, 000 Rs)

5. Free replace of a new car

6. 10,000 Rs tavelling/visiting charges from Delhi to Moradabad to solve the issue at service center as I am a resindent of Delhi

7. 5000 Rs photo charges to customer care, akankshar care, Lucknow and all relevant departments etc.

8. 10,000 Rs of wastage of my important time.

The total cost of compentation will be approximate 2,00,000 Rs + Free replacement of a new care.

I hope you all understand my disappointment so I do not have any option to go to the consumer court.

Best Regards,
