Suzuki recently launched the Swift facelift in the Japanese Domestic Market (JDM) and here are some pics and details of the refreshed car.
Exterior visual changes to the car include LED fixtures around foglights. The LEDs seem to be similar in shape to the ones we see on the Hyundai i20 facelift. The other change that we can notice in the exterior styling is a new set of alloys and updated bumpers. The non-alloy-wheels versions get new design for the wheel caps.
Changes to the interiors include a new backlight-system that can change color as per your driving styles. The Swift facelift also gets a display which judges “eco-friendly driving” and shows a set of leaves during sedate driving.
The car also gets new “dual jet engine” (DJE) technology which combines regenerative braking mechanism and an idling stop system to the same 1.2-liter K Series engine that powers the pre-facelift JDM Swift. All this leads to an improved fuel economy of 26.4 kmpl (in Japanese driving cycle), thereby exempting the Swift from all taxes.
Suzuki has also launched the new Swift RS in Japanese Dosmetic Market.
All the Swift RS variants for JDM come equipped with new front bumper, grille and LEDs. The Swift RS variant also comes with body skirts and ESP as standard.
The Suzuki Swift facelift has been launched in as many as seven variants –
- Swift RS
- Swift XS
The JDM spec Swift can be ordered with either a 5-speed MT or a CVT box. Furthermore, the car can be bought in either 2WD or 4WD layout.
Prices for the Swift facelift range start from 1,279,950 yen and go all the way to 1,787,100 yen.
