Regulars to Motoroids would remember that we reported in detail when images of the 2013 Suzuki Swift facelift were leaked online sometime back. Suzuki has now officially released the details of the updated car, along with the images of the car.
As we saw in the leaked images, the car gets the quintessential DRLs in the front bumper. The DRLs seem to be similar in shape to the ones we see on the facelifted Hyundai i20. The other change that we can notice in the exterior styling is a new set of alloys. The alloy wheels version gets new design for the wheel caps.
The UK market also gets a new color option for the 2013 Suzuki Swift- Boost Blue (Metallic).
Changes to the styling of 2013 Suzuki Swift facelift are “Blink and you’ll miss them” but it’s good that Suzuki realizes it doesn’t need to mend what ain’t broke.
Talking about the interiors and the features list, the update is more comprehensive with the car getting an upholstery change for the seats, Auto Up feature for driver side Power Window, Power folding for ORVMs and Auto headlamps.
Other than this, the international spec Swift will continue sporting a Push Button start, cruise control and Bluetooth connectivity.
The updated 2013 Suzuki Swift will continue being powered by the 1.2-liter K-Series petrol engine and 1.3-liter DDiS diesel engine. However, the diesel motor has been tweaked to reduce CO2 emissions from 109g/km to 101g/km and fuel efficiency has been increased by 7%.
It is pretty much for sure that MSIL would launch the Swift facelift in India, what with competition getting fiercer and all that? However, our guess is as good as yours when it comes the launch date of the updated car.
