If reports are to be believed, the launch details of the upcoming 2017 Suzuki Swift have been leaked. According to a motoring blog which reportedly had access to the model’s promotional material, the 2017 Swift will be launched in March next year.
Although the exact date has not been revealed, it is likely that the new Swift will make its debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. According to the report, the upcoming generation of the Swift sedan will be powered by a 1.0-litre three cylinder Boosterjet petrol engine and a 1.2-litre four cylinder Dualjet diesel motor.
The petrol engine will be tuned to produce 102 PS of power and will come mated to a six speed (torque converter) automatic transmission. The diesel motor, on the other hand, will come in two trim variants – a regular model mated to a five speed manual transmission and an SHVS mild hybrid variant paired to a CVT transmission. Both the models will be reportedly tuned to produce a power output of approximately 91 PS.
Both, the petrol and diesel models tip the scales at approximately 830-910 kg and 930 kg respectively. A few notable features on the upcoming Swift will include Radar Brake Support (RBS), automatic headlamps and curtain airbags. More details on the 2017 Swift will emerge as the launch date comes closer. Stay tuned!
