Overseas vs. Pakistan: The Swift Timeline
While the current 3rd Generation Swift has been reigning overseas for nearly seven years since its 2016 introduction, Pakistani customers had to wait until February 2022 to experience this model, adhering to the usual trend of delayed releases. Suzuki Global, however, has been diligently working on bringing the next generation of the Swift to market, a development long overdue.
Sneak Peek: Suzuki Japan Reveals SWIFT CONCEPT
Suzuki Japan has offered enthusiasts a tantalizing glimpse of the forthcoming new Swift in the form of the SWIFT CONCEPT. Anticipations are running high that the production version will inherit the design cues seen in this concept. While Suzuki has yet to disclose further details or a debut date for the production model, the concept vehicle is set to make its appearance at the Japan Mobility Show on October 26.
Changes in the New Suzuki Swift
Upon closer examination, it becomes apparent that the all-new Swift exhibits more evolutionary changes rather than a revolutionary overhaul. At first glance, one might not even recognize it as a new-generation model. Notable updates include a new hood, a front honeycomb grille, a bumper, and headlights. The side profile showcases a distinct character line on the upper part of the doors, and the rear door handle adopts a more conventional placement compared to the C-pillar in the previous generation. The roof profile maintains a familiar slope, along with a similar-looking C pillar. The rear receives updates as well, including new taillights, a bumper, and a tailgate. While the new design might not immediately resonate with die-hard Swift enthusiasts, design preferences can be subjective.
The interior undergoes a transformation with a fresh dashboard layout featuring a floating infotainment screen, revamped HVAC controls, and an updated instrument cluster. The steering wheel maintains the classic Swift design, contributing to an overall improved, modern, and sporty interior. It’s important to note that Suzuki has officially released the frontal image only for the concept vehicle, leaving some ambiguity regarding the authenticity of the circulated rear end and interior images.
While specific mechanical details are currently unavailable, it’s anticipated that the next Swift will continue to utilize the HEARTECT platform from the 3rd generation, likely retaining a similar engine configuration, including a 1L three-cylinder turbo or a 1.2L 4-cylinder naturally aspirated engine. Furthermore, expectations run high for the introduction of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) functions, alongside overall structural and safety enhancements in the next generation Swift.
