Extra kit and new mild hybrid for facelifted Suzuki Swift
Suzuki has facelifted its third-generation Swift with updated styling, increased equipment and safety features and new mild hybrids across the range.
Priced from £14,749, the facelifted model replaces the previous 1.2-litre Dualjet petrol engine with a new unit that’s paired up with a higher-capacity battery and an upgraded 12V mild-hybrid system as standard to offer enhanced economy. In two-wheel-drive form and with a manual transmission, the enhanced 1.2-litre engine and mild hybrid has a WLTP CO2 emissions figure of 111g/km with a fuel consumption figure of 57.2mpg on the combined cycle. It’s also offered with Suzuki’s Allgrip four-wheel drive and the same manual or a CVT as a £1,000 option.
It’s available in SZ-L, SZ-T, SZ5 grades, providing increased equipment and safety features. The SZ-L is now the lead-in for the range and features six airbags, a new automated emergency braking that operates from 3mph, adaptive cruise control, LED headlights, air conditioning, DAB radio, privacy glass, 16-inch alloy wheels, LED daytime running lights and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone link as standard.
Priced from £16,249, the SZ-T adds grey 16-inch alloy wheels, collision-mitigating dual sensor brake support, lane departure warning and prevention, weaving alert, rear cross traffic alert, blind spot monitor, traffic sign recognition and rear parking sensors.
The top-spec SZ5 trim features navigation, 16-inch alloy wheels, automatic air con, keyless entry and start, telescopic steering wheel adjustment, rear electric windows and door mirror side turn indicators. It’s priced at £18,749 for either the CVT or the Allgrip with five-speed manual.
Drivers can choose from one solid colour and six optional metallic colours with three dual tone colours incorporating an optional Black Pearl roof.
