Suzuki launches all-new Swift

Suzuki has invested in its best seller with a view to keeping its popularity. The Swift for 2017 has just got even better as it has been totally rebuilt and refined from the ground up. This latest Swift in four grades: GL, GL Navigator, GL Navigator with Safety Pack, and GLX. Prices range from $15,990 to $22,990.

This new Swift is short, low, and wide with key styling elements such as the wrap-around window and vertical headlamps. Also, Suzuki has introduced stronger fender lines, a higher nose and wider grille for a strong appearance, blacked-out pillars creating the look of a floating roof, and has improved the overall proportions via reduced height and a longer wheelbase.

Under the bonnet, the GL has a 1.2 litre Dualjet engine with the option of 5 speed manual or CVT automatic transmission, with the top-spec GLX flaunting 6 speed auto alongside a newly-developed Boosterjet engine with direct-injection, turbocharging, and downsized displacement, generating higher torque from lower revs.

In addition to ABS, EBD, and BA standard across the range, the top two grades also feature Suzuki’s first application of a forward detection system using the combination of a monocular camera and laser sensor attached to the windshield. Giving further peace of mind are a lane departure warning function, a weaving alert function and another Suzuki first the high beam assist.

The new interior has been created with driver comfort in mind, the idea being a sportier appearance without compromising the functional aspects of the car. The ultra-sporty dash, race car-like D-shaped steering wheel, body hugging seats, and driver-angled centre console all combine to create a relaxing and intuitive environment.

Further complementing the swish interior and carrying forward the Suzuki tradition of the latest connectivity at great value prices, the Swift includes a seven-inch touch display multimedia unit with built in sat-nav, reversing camera, and both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as standard from the entry level GL Navigator.

This fresh design coupled with the latest tech, turbo performance and advanced preventative safety features have upgraded an icon that has already sold more than 132,000 units in Australia and upwards of 5 million units worldwide.
