Apart from the addition of the life saving safety feature, the updated DLX variant continues with the features that the erstwhile DLX variant came with. They include a music system with Bluetooth, USB and speakers, along with power windows for all doors, central locking with I-Cats anti-theft system, and blacked-out pillars.
None of these features are available on the variant it is based on, the Swift LXI. Power for the Swift DLX comes from the 1.2-liter K-Series petrol engine capable of producing 84.3 PS and 114 Nm of torque. Matched to a 5-speed manual transmission, it can average a fuel economy of 20.4 km/l (ARAI claimed).
