Suzuki's all new Swift revealed

By Faiming_low on 27 Dec 2016 in New model

Attached Image Suzuki has revealed its all new Swift ahead of the Geneva Motor Show for its home market. Looking like a sleeker evolution of its predecessor, the new car looks more menacing to us thanks to it being very slightly longer (+10mm) and shorter ( -10mm).

Attached Image Three engine options are available. Starting with the base engine, a 1.2-litre 90bhp twin-injector Dualjet NA four-cylinder can be found in the cheapest variant while eco-minded buyers will want a mild hybrid version of the same engine that is paired with a 3bhp/50Nm DC synchronous electric motor. The hybrid variant is said to be able to do better than 25km/L.

Attached Image Keen drivers will be more interested in the last engine found in the RSt variant though. Also a three cylinder, this turbocharged 1.0-litre Boosterjet engine puts out a decent 101bhp and 150Nm of torque from 1,700 to 4,500 rpm. It should make the new Swift, which is said to weigh between 840kg and 970kg, pretty brisk. Sadly, the turbo model only comes with a six-speed automatic.

The new Swift is set to go on sale in Japan on January 4 ahead of its global debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show in March.

Since young, Fai Ming has always centered his life around cars. In fact his first word was 'car' and not 'mum' or 'dad'. Aren't kids cute?

Rear leg room looks a cramped as current model.

 

In the looks department, the Swift has that matured grown-up look compared to the existing model.

Unfortunately the front grille and rearlamps looked too much like the new Mini Cooper.

 

I believed it's a coincidence cos the Swift prototype was leaked months before Mini starts its new Cooper sales. But consumers will think otherwise...
