Suzuki Motor Corporation unveiled the Swift for Europe at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show as its all new global compact supermini and it has now been facelifted for 2021 with a new 1.2-litre enhanced Hybrid engine as well as further standard specification upgrades. The latest Swift represents an automotive advancement aimed at uplifting the driver through succession, evolution and innovation.
In addition to its stylish exterior design in a compact size of just 3,840mm long, the Suzuki Swift features excellent visibility, a spacious cabin and ample luggage space. The initial development goal was to create an all new hatchback styling that is undoubtedly Suzuki.
Aspects of Styling Innovation
Initial development of the Suzuki Swift's exterior design was based on the concept of a "bold evolution of Swift's DNA". While resolute efforts were made so that Swift would inherit the model's characteristic styling, elements that needed refreshing were also boldly transformed in 2020 to innovatively evolve the car.
Enhanced carry-over elements include strong shoulders and vertically arranged front and rear lamps. Swift offers a more emotional appearance together with a muscular and well-grounded look and incorporates a new front grille and headlamp design for the facelift model.
The look of a low centre of gravity is further established by blacked-out pillars that create the appearance of a floating roof. Pillar-mounted door handles add both style and a sporty flair, while a high-tech look comes in the form of LED signature illumination used in the headlamps and all models now have LED headlamps and rear combination lamps as standard equipment - previously for SZ5 models only.
