Suzuki has unveiled the latest version of the Swift, now in its 4th generation, in Japan. Renowned for its elegant design, reliability, and spirited performance, Suzuki navigated the challenge of updating an already beloved product without compromising its core identity.
Notable features include updated headlamps, LED DRLs, and a redesigned front bumper with a metallic element, lending the car a sportier aesthetic. The sides showcase a connecting character line, standard rear door handles, and fresh alloy wheels, while the rear exhibits rejuvenated tail lamps and a more pronounced bumper.
Internally, the refreshed dashboard, center console, and AC vents contribute to an overall enhanced appearance. Despite the global trend favoring minimalism, Suzuki has chosen to maintain a more intricate design. The new Swift incorporates a 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system supporting wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, accompanied by a new auto climate control panel borrowed from the Baleno.
Suzuki aims to elevate performance and fuel efficiency with a new 1.2-liter, 3-cylinder petrol engine featuring a 48V self-charging hybrid setup, aiming for an approximate efficiency of 25 kmpl. The launch in India is expected in the coming months, with test mules already making appearances.
