The 4th-gen Swift is based on a more improved version of the so-called ‘Heartect’ platform. The hatch now measures 3,860 mm long, 1,735 mm wide and 1,520 mm tall, with a wheelbase of 2,450 mm. The wheelbase is identical and so is the width, which means you probably not gonna find much difference in the cabin space.

But anyway, I’m not a fan of this design (yet), but like most new cars (except for ugly new BMWs, of course), I’m sure the design will grow on me. Key exterior highlights depending on the trim include LED projector headlights, front LED fog lights, LED rear combo lights, and 15-inch alloy wheels. None of the variants get a sunroof; seems like a missed opportunity, but not sure what Suzuki’s challenges were. Download the brochure here.

The refreshed cabin features a 9-inch touchscreen (7-inch for lesser variants), wireless Apple CarPlay & Android Auto connectivity, Arkamys surround sound tuning, auto AC, rear AC vents, front & rear USB ports, and adjustable front seat headrests. VXi (O) and above get Suzuki Connect connected car features. As for safety, you get 6 airbags, ABS with EBD, ESP, Hill-hold Assist, seat belt reminder, speed-sensitive auto door lock, and rear defogger as standard across the range. The range-topping variant gets a few more features.

Powering this brand new Swift is a 1.2-litre 3-cylinder (yes, you read that right) naturally aspirated petrol engine. This engine is a Z-series (Z12E) engine as opposed to the K-series (K12N) used in the 3rd-gen model. One cylinder has been let go, but this engine is primarily designed for efficiency and lower emissions. It offers 60 kW (81.5 metric hp) at 5,700 rpm and 111.7 Nm (82 lb-ft) of torque at 4,300 rpm. Over 8 metric horses and a negligible amount of torque loss, but hey, it is what it is. Welcome to the future. Transmission options include a 5-speed manual or a 5-speed AMT (automated manual).


The company claims a fuel-efficiency figure of 25.75 km/l for the AMT and 24.80 km/l for the manual, but as you might know, the real-world figures may vary significantly. CO2 emissions are claimed to be down by 12%, thanks to an electric water pump for optimal engine cooling and a Lambda air flow sensor.
