It was in April 2019 that Maruti Suzuki announced it will stop selling diesels come April 1, 2020. The Maruti Suzuki Swift used the Fiat-sourced 1.3-litre Multi-jet diesel engine. In fact, this particular engine was used in many other Maruti models. The 1.3-litre Multijet diesel engine powered more than 21 cars in the country. The motor was fun to drive and yes very fuel efficient. The fuel economy figures for the engine on most cars were above 15 kmpl and that was certainly a big plus.
