The Suzuki Swift 2018 will still keep holding on its strong shoulders, vertically-set taillights, dynamic window design, and black-out A-pillar. Transformations come from turbine-styled 2-tone 16-inch alloy wheels, LED tail lamps, rear pillar-mounted door handles, and a larger and aggressive grille. Plus, the GLX will get LED headlights that come with daytime running lights.
By sitting on the next-gen HEARTECT platform, the all-new model now lightens its weight by up to 30 kg compared to its predecessor which means it now weighs only 920 kg. Although it now looks like getting bigger, in fact, its length has been reduced by 10 mm while the height shortened down b 15 mm. It will be powered by a 1.2L K12M four-cylinder powertrain which doles out 113 Nm at 4,200 rpm and 82 HP at 6,000 rpm, running on a 5-speed CVT or manual

A roomy cabin is what the occupants will enjoy. More headroom is thanks to the seat mounting points which are now lowered by 25 mm at the back and 21 mm in the front. Space between the central lines and seats gets an enlargement by 10 mm to give more shoulder room. What’s more, the back now becomes roomier for cargo with a load capacity of up to 265 liters with the 60/40 folded rear seats up.
Car enthusiasts also care much about options for colors. Here we go! There are 6 in total that you can choose from, including Super Black Pearl, Mineral Gray Metallic, Premium Silver Metallic, Pure White Pearl, Fervent Red, and Speedy Blue Metallic.
