Maruti Suzuki Swift likely to get a six-speed gearbox

Maruti Suzuki could move to a 6-speed gearbox

The first auto from Maruti Suzuki's portfolio to get the new six-speed transmission (codenamed MF30) is likely to be the new Swift, reports Moneycontrol. The all-new 2018 Swift, which was just launched in February 2018, is said to be the first vehicle that will receive the newly developed 6-speed gearbox.

Maruti is looking to shore up the use of six-speed transmissions in a gradual way. The car's six-speed transmission is expected to enhance its fuel efficiency while at the same time run at a higher speed but at a lower RPM.

For instance, cruising speed of 80-100km/hour on the highway can be done in the sixth gear rather than in the fifth gear. This will put a lot less stress on the engine. By 2020, demand for the six-speed manual gearbox is expected to grow by four lakh units per year, the report. Given the fact that Maruti has not clearly denied the development, the new 6-speed manual gearbox could indeed be in the works.

A response from Maruti Suzuki stated "We don't give guidance on future products and technologies".

However, with the phasing out of the earlier generation model and subsequent launch of the all-new version past year the company also terminated the use of the six-speed gearbox.

Priced from Rs 4.99 lakh to Rs 6.96 lakh for petrol variants and Rs 5.99 lakh to Rs 7.96 lakh for diesel variants (ex-showroom Delhi), the new generation swift is offered in 1.2-liter K12 VVT petrol and 1.3-liter DDiS 190 diesel engines.

Maruti Suzuki is not the only one to offer six-speed transmission, its rivals like Hyundai is already employing it in cars like Elite i20, Verna, Elantra and Creta.

Maruti Suzuki is planning to introduce a new 6-speed gearbox codenamed as MF30, and it will boost the overall performance of the cars. The Brezza, which is the market leader in the SUV space does not come with an automatic gearbox.

Tata Motors also offer 6-speed gearbox on the Nexon and Hexa. The engines are now offered in five-speed manual transmission and five-speed Auto Gear Shift (AGS) transmission in both petrol and diesel trims.
