Suzuki has introduced the Swift SZ-L special edition for the UK. Based on the 1.2 litre SZ3, the car gets a rear spoiler, rear privacy glass, unique 16-inch alloys and free metallic paint in a choice of four colours to add on to the seven airbags, ESP, air-con, USB and Bluetooth already offered as standard on the SZ3 model.

The interior gets treated to red accent stitching on the steering wheel and gearshift surround (like on the Swift Sport). There’s also cruise control.

Suzuki says the 94 PS 1.2 Dual VVT engine can return a fuel consumption figure of 5.0 litres per 100 km on the combined cycle, while emitting a low 116 g of CO2 per km. The Swift SZ-L is available on the recently extended VAT-free promotion at £10,599 (RM51,600) for the three-door and £11,016 (RM53,600) for the five-door.

The third-gen Suzuki Swift received its Malaysian launch only four weeks back. We get the five-door GLX 1.4 VVT at a starting price of RM77,888, OTR with insurance.
