Order books for the soon-to-be-introduced 2015 Suzuki Swift facelift are now open! A quick check on the brand’s Malaysian Facebook page has revealed the a sole shot of a turquoise Swift sporting similar exterior changes to the one that was featured in a listing on our sister classifieds site, oto.my.

The refreshed B-segment hatch first made its global debut in 2013 and as mentioned, could debut anytime soon in Malaysia. From what we can gather from the sole image and listings, changes will include new 16-inch, twin-spoke alloy wheels, LED daytime running lights, a restyled front bumper and the aforementioned turquoise paint scheme. The base GL appears to be equipped with the current Swift GLX’s 16-inch wheels.

No mechanical changes are touted so expect the facelifted Swift to soldier on with the same 1.4 litre VVT four-cylinder petrol engine with 95 PS and 130 Nm of torque. Said mill is mated to a four-speed automatic transmission – drive is sent to the front wheels.

On the inside, the base GL is touted to arrive with a higher-spec head unit while the pricier GLX will receive a touchscreen navigation system. Prices remain unconfirmed but the earlier listings mark a price tag of RM63,388 for the base GL model while the GLX is listed at RM73,388 – which could, potentially, mark a price cut of RM2,400 and RM300 for the GL and GLX, respectively.
