​Switched on Swift

There’s a new Hybrid in town and it’s already making waves. The Swift Hybrid from Suzuki has all the character, fun and practicality of the Swift you know and love, combined with Smart Hybrid technology for a better future.

Cleaner, greener, swifter

Leveraging Suzuki’s expertise in economical small cars and SUVs the eco-friendly Swift Hybrid delivers amazing fuel efficiency and super-low emissions. There’s no performance compromise – actually it’s quite the opposite, and there’s no need to change the way you drive.

Swift Hybrid seamlessly integrates a responsive petrol engine with stop-start and electric engine assist for instant torque and acceleration. This fusion of power reduces emissions and you’ll never have to worry about plugging in – the Swift Hybrid is self-charging and always ready to go.

Part electric, all Swift

While it’s future tech, it still has all the character, fun and features that make Suzuki Swift NZ’s most popular supermini. On top of a HEARTECT chassis and 6 airbags the new Swift Hybrid features a host of smart safety and electronic driver assistance systems. There’s a centrally located 7-inch touchscreen with voice-activated audio, wireless Bluetooth®, smartphone connectivity, and reverse camera. Apple CarPlay and Android AutoTM are standard along with cruise control and a speed limiter to complement your safe driving.


Advanced Hybrid tech

• The Swift’s electric motor works alongside its petrol engine to help improve fuel efficiency. Its extra battery also runs the electrical systems.

• When stationary the petrol engine stops to save fuel. Press the accelerator and the electric motor restarts the petrol engine plus gives you extra torque as you accelerate away.

• You never have to plug it in. The electric engine uses deceleration and braking energy to charge the Swift’s batteries.

Already in demand

Motoring experts are calling the new Swift “New Zealand’s most affordable hybrid” with NZ Autocar saying “the boost from the electric engine is noticeable off the mark and restarts are quick and seamless”. Driven.co.nz notes “Swift remains NZ’s most popular supermini by far” and says the hybrid is “gunning for eco glory”. With that in mind, if you would like a test drive, you will need to be quick and talk to your Suzuki dealer. Prices start at just $26,500, for more info see our website. As with all new Suzukis, Swift Hybrid comes with a 5 year warranty package and 5 years of Suzuki roadside assist.
