The compact Suzuki Swift has had a major makeover. It’s bolder, safer and faster than ever before, and it will be available at Hodgson Suzuki soon.
First of all, it is being released with a hybrid engine along with two petrol units. Its bold new look is a really noticeable change. With its slimmer, swept-back headlights, smaller hexagonal grille and more modest front bumper, it has a grown-up look. Expect a lighter car (just 900kg) with better CO2 emissions and the option of a four-wheel drive chassis in the new Suzuki Swift.
It’s expected that you’ll be able to choose from a 1.0-litre turbo charged petrol engine and a 1.2-litre hybrid version that uses an electric motor to provide faster acceleration. Another engine is likely to join the selection in 2018 for the performance-driven Sport model – it’s a 1.4-litre powertrain borrowed from the Vitara S.
Inside and out, the new Suzuki Swift is smarter and sportier. It’s longer and wider than the current model, making it much more practical for a compact hot hatch. It also sits lower to the ground, offering sporty appeal. Softly sculpted rather than covered in creases and featuring sleeker headlights with an intricate design, it’s a progressive looking car.
The cabin is just as mature with every control and information system neatly embedded into the dashboard. The surrounding hood on the speedometer adds an extra smart touch, as does the touchscreen that’s likely to be an option on certain trim levels.
Suzuki has made many improvements to the Swift’s safety features. Most of them come with a safety package that’s an optional extra. Items like high beam assist and Dual Sensor Brake Support are expected to feature. The Swift is also predicted to have adaptive cruise control.
