This is the all-new Suzuki Swift which goes on sale from June.
New owners will find the model is 10% lighter than the Swift it replaces and it’s also 19% more powerful.
It helps to that the car is 8% more fuel efficient though it’s only available only as a five-door model.
The Suzuki Swift will return 66 mpg
Under the bonnet, the Suzuki Swift will return 66 mpg and is powered by a four cylinder 1.2 litre Dualjet engine that produces 90 BHP with emissions of 98g/km.
That economy figure is for the Swift fitted with the manual transmission and there’s also a useful three cylinder 1.0 litre turbocharged ‘Boosterjet’ engine producing 111 bhp which will return 61 mpg with emissions of 104g/km.
This engine is also available with Suzuki’s ‘mild hybrid system’ so emissions are 97g/km. All models are also available with the firm’s all-wheel drive Allgrip system as well.
This car is also now the third all-new Suzuki model featuring the firm’s lightweight platform, it’s called Heartect and weighs just 890 kg.
Suzuki Swift has been a worldwide sales success
In that time, the Swift has found 127,000 owners in the UK and it has sold more than 1 million Swifts in Europe.
The latest model was launched in Japan late last year to great acclaim and the all-new global supermini was unveiled at the Geneva motor show.
However, the model for Europe has been designed and manufactured with the continent’s drivers in mind.
