2011 Suzuki Swift exposes uncovered bum in public!

2011 Suzuki Swift exposes uncovered bum in public!

The current Suzuki Swift has been around since 2004, although it still looks cheeky and youthful six years on. A replacement is very near, and test mules have been caught in action in the snow and at Nurburgring. We previously posted up an image which purportedly shows the dashboard of the 2011 Swift, which will be launched at the Paris Motor Show in October according to reports. Now let’s have a first look at the uncovered exterior.

These images of the Swift on a transporter were taken in Hungary, where Suzuki’s European production base is located. If this is indeed the new Swift, we can see that the changes are evolutionary; perhaps Suzuki didn’t want to alter the winning formula too much. The rear lights are now longer and goes deeper into the car’s sides while the license plate location has shifted upwards. Reminds me a little of the previous generation “big booty” Renault Megane. Cars testing at the ‘Ring also give hints of headlights that are more swept back. Do you like what you see?

According to Autocar, insiders have said that the new car is an evolution of the current model – more grown up, but with the same sort of appeal. The 2011 model is also said to sit on an all new platform and will come with new small engines, with turbo being a possibility.

Take a closer look after the jump!

    Too bad, still a hatch. Recently saw Fiesta Sports which comes with lots of goodies. And the Sedan looked awful… Can’t they match all the goodies for Sedan as well?

    Seems production ready. Should be a classic like Renaults’ Clio of yore but now have become too bloated and sophisticated to be any thing like its past.

    Can’t wait!

    Remember that song “baby got back”? Hahahha…

    I quite like it, a subtle change from the current design, but different enough. Look forward to see the front.

    I also believe Suzuki will shoe-horn in some VW diesel engines too.

    Not really exited by the rear of the new Swift. The Suzuki engineers should be more aggresive, give the rear more “hot” looks. However, let’s wait for the front and then we should know better whether the overall Swift will looks better than the current one…

    This could be a hot hatch with a nice butt! Aggressive styling there, Megane-ish. Hope a better engine will reach our shores.

    from the exterior look, it does inherit the same lines etc. as its previous gen.
    hehe..some i-really-like-that-old-one feeling is really there :P

    pls correct me if i’m wrong :)

    but it makes me wonder whether it is ok to use a new platform but
    employ the less-than-new look?
    or is it just merely a “re-skin”?

    hmm..
