The Suzuki Swift is still one of the best B-segment hatchbacks you can buy. Yesterday the automaker announced a series of upgrades for the compact city-slicker.
On the face of things you’ll notice a new grille and bumper. The rear sports a brighter LED brake light and redesigned alloys have been added to the mix. Vying for a more contemporary look, they’ve also slapped some LED daytime-running lights on the range-topping GLS model.
Changes are more subtle on the inside, with different seat fabrics. The GLS model now boasts cruise control and Bluetooth connectivity as standard. These two niceties have also been rolled-out on the top-tier Swift Sport. Power remains the same and the 70kW four-cylinder unit is employed. The Sport model continues to use a 100kW 1.6-litre mill.
You’ll pay R165 900 for the 1.4 GL manual and the GLS manual goes for R186 900. The automatic GLS is priced at R201 900 and the Sport sells for R223 900. A three-year/60 000-kilometre service plan and three-year/100 000-kilometre warranty are standard.
