We’ve already seen the latest Suzuki Swift facelift from a set of leaked photos a few weeks ago. What we haven’t found out since, however, are the mechanical or detail changes apart from the updated looks. Turns out, what we’ve already seen is all there is to know, as the Swift facelift is purely a cosmetic refresher.
The minor styling revision doesn’t extend any further than the new reprofiled front bumper, which is now more defined and features distinctive L-shaped LED daytime running lights on the foglamp housings. Elsewhere, fresh 16-inch wheels, LED-type high level brake lamp and new seat fabric design are all there is to it in this facelift.
No changes in the engine department, as the 94 hp/118 Nm 1.2 litre petrol is carried over untouched with either a five-speed manual or four-speed auto ‘box. The Europe-only 1.3 litre DDiS diesel model is said to have 7% improved efficiency, while its 75 hp/190 Nm output figures remain. In the UK the new Swift 4×4 and five-door Swift Sport join the updated range.
