Suzuki Malaysia Automobile today introduced the updated Swift, now in 1.5 GLX guise. It’s essentially the second-generation one, given some new bobs and bits – there’s no sign of the third-generation model just quite yet.
No change to the drivetrain and powertrain, or their specs and figures, the 1.5 litre M15A VVT DOHC mill continuing along with the four-speed auto transmission. As far as it goes, no changes to the interior too, with the exterior being the only thing reworked. What’s new is to the Swift 1.5L GLX is a deeper front bumper, new lower grille and sporty side skirts
Also on the new list are silver-coloured fog lamp piping, an engine cover and a new ‘expressively styled’ spoiler, as the company puts it, adorning the rear. Meanwhile, the rear bonnet flows downwards into a deeper bumper, which defines the outer edges of a new honeycomb grille that extends to the lower edge of the bumper. New rear combination lamps finish the dressing up of a fave that has sold more than 19,000 units here since it was introduced.
Five colours are available – Bayside Blue, Serene Silver, Supreme Red, Tranquility Black and Superior White. The 1.5 GLX goes for RM75,788, on the road with insurance, which is two thousand more than before with the 1.5A/T. If you’re so inclined, you can opt for the add-on package that is badged the GXS, replete with leather seats, V-Kool tint and an Threebond Ultra Glass Coating Neo treatment, which bumps the price up to RM81,888, again OTR with insurance.
