Suzuki has unveiled the third generation of its Swift supermini. Measuring 3850mm in length, 1695mm in width and 1510mm high, the Swift is 90mm longer than the previous version, while the wheelbase has grown from 2380mm to 2430mm.
Extensive use of higher-strength steel has resulted in the bodyshell being both lighter and stiffer than before. Suzuki claims that the intention with the new Swift's styling was to make the car appear more dynamic and energetic, athletic and elegant, sporty and emotional.
Clearly an evolutionary design, the exterior features a softer, more expressive DRG that features larger swept-back headlights and a prominent feature line, which better integrates the more rounded upper and lower grille apertures.
Suzuki say that the interior design features black keynote colors with silver accenting - but has not yet released photos of the interior, or rear of the car. European launch is scheduled for autumn this year. We expect the Swift to make its motor show debut in Paris in September.
