Suzuki Swift upgraded

Hybrid charging technology

Car manufacturers, Suzuki, have recently upgraded their Swift models for the 2015 model year, with the cars receiving a number of minor updates to boost it’s standard specification in an effort to keep up with competitors such as the Ford Fiesta and the Renault Clio. These include new technology, a revised engine range and new styling options.

All four trims; SZ2, SZ3, SZ4 and Sport will be carried over to the new upgraded versions, though the company have dropped the 1.3 litre DDiS diesel from the range. The company decided to drop the unit as the engine only accounted for 10% of all Swift sales, leaving a choice of two unchanged engines.

This leaves the 1.2litre petrol unit capable of producing 94 brake horse power and 118Nm of torque. It is capable of returning 56.5mpg on a combined cycle with CO2 emissions of 116g/km. The Swift Sport variant continues to be powered by a 136 brake horse power 1.6 litre petrol unit that can achieve 44.1mpg and 147g/km of CO2.

How has the Suzuki Swift technology changed?

Changes to the models’ technology have been minimal with all models except the Sport variant to now feature LED running lights, while front fog lights are now included across the range. A gear shift indicator has also been added to help encourage fuel efficient driving. Suzuki have also added a TPMS tyre pressure monitoring system as standard on all models.

SZ4 models also gain a DAB radio and satellite navigation as standard, in addition to a generous kit list that includes climate control, keyless entry and ignition, automatic headlamps and cruise control. The range topping SZ4 guise has also gained a more rugged appearance, with front and rear skid plates, black wheel arch surrounds and black side skirts.

Meanwhile a new colour, dubbed Grey Pearl Metallic, is now available on all trim levels but the Sport.

How much does the upgraded Suzuki Swift cost?

Prices for the revised Swift range now start at around £10,799 for the entry level model, though with the company’s current VAT Free promotion that falls to £8,999. The VAT Free promotion continues up the range until the 5 door 1.2 SZ4 manual 4×4 variant. From there, the range topping 3 door 1.6 litre Sport Suzuki Swift and 5 door 1.6 litre Sport model are unable to access the offer and as such these Suzuki models  are priced at £13,999 and £14,499 respectively.
