Hello,

Maruti Suzuki recommends in Engine Oil Grade in Swift as below
> 5W/30 (A5/B5)
> 5W/40 (A3/B4)

The A3/B4 is importantly the ACEA Rating which is what also important in picking Oil
The Engine Oil as referred as per owner manual is ideal, but if in case you putting in 5W/30 with ACEA rating of A5/B5 - it can also be reasonably good for the car

Refer more details on Maruti Engine Oil Recommendation

Should help !!

In 5W40, 5 is for winter. 40 is for thickness (viscosity). In 5W30, 5 is for winter & 30 is for thickness (viscosity). So 5 is in both which is for winter. Go for 5w40. Remember one thing, the first start of the day, u must keep the car for 50 seconds in neutral gear then after 50 seconds shift the first gear. 5W40 oil is good for engine life.
