Life is Swift

Completely redesigned, reimagined, and re-engineered from the ground up, Suzuki has taken everything Kiwis love about Swift, amplified it, added to it, and made it better than ever.

Looking at the stylish exterior you’ll see the Swift’s inimitable character hasn’t just been retained, it’s been accentuated – with a modern twist reflecting the new technology and innovation within. Flared wheel arches create a planted look, new curves emphasise the floating roof – and check-out those cool-looking handles tucked up in the rear doors! By keeping the surface clean and unbroken, they give the new Swift the sporty look of a 3-door hatch.
Inside, the cabin has a striking, modern look, with all the latest connectivity, navigation, and entertainment options cleverly integrated to enhance your experience behind the wheel. There’s more room for you and your passengers with loads of clever storage spaces and a massively expanded boot. Split fold-down rear seatbacks make room for large items – so you can take what you want, and who you want, and have more fun than ever.
Many of the Swift’s remarkable improvements come courtesy of the new HEARTECT next-generation platform. This state-of-the-art, high-rigidity frame is lighter, stronger and safer. Its continuous shape with fewer joints effectively disperses impact energy and enhances Swift’s performance. Acceleration, agility, turning, stopping, and fuel consumption are all noticeably improved.
Life is Swift – everyone’s in a hurry, so the new Swift has a full complement of the latest safety features to protect you and your passengers. But for this next generation, Suzuki has gone above and beyond with an Advanced Forward Detection System* designed to lesson the severity of a collision – or even help you avoid it altogether. The system employs a monocular camera and laser sensor to offer Dual Sensor Brake Support (DSBS), headlight high beam assist (RS only), a Lane departure warning, weaving alert, and adaptive cruise control.
Swift has always been a driver’s car – its compact shape, powerful engines and responsive powertrain make it famously agile and fun to drive. So when it came to creating the next generation, the utmost care went into every detail of its powertrain. The result is outstanding efficiency with absolutely no compromise.
Two engines, two characters

1.0-LITRE BOOSTERJET: The RS model features the amazing new direct-injection turbo engine which creates torque on par with a naturally aspirated 1.8-litre engine. The turbocharger delivers high engine torque from low revs, making it perfect for a wide spectrum of driving situations.

1.2-LITRE DUALJET: This engine gives the GL and GLX models the ideal balance between performance and economy. Having dual injectors for each cylinder greatly increases thermal efficiency. It also features a water-cooled exhaust gas recirculation system and a more compact combustion chamber for increased power and better fuel efficiency.

Using Suzuki’s unparalleled small car expertise and cutting-edge technology, the new Swift is better than ever. Performance and economy have been taken to new heights, and safety features have been paired with advanced driver assistance systems. It’s more comfortable, more spacious, and more stylish than ever before. Best of all, it’s undeniably Swift – and as always, so much fun to drive.
