Written By:

The much awaited next-generation Suzuki Swift finally breaks cover in Japan. Suzuki has unveiled the Japanese-spec 2017 Swift in its home market.

The 2017 Suzuki Swift will make its global debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. The new model bears a slight resemblance to the current model with its basic design layout. Apart from that Suzuki has managed to give a refreshed look to the third generation Swift.

The 2017 Swift is based on the Baleno platform. The India-spec model is expected to look exactly the same when Maruti Suzuki will launch the next-gen Swift in the Indian market during next year's festive season.

The 2017 Suzuki Swift gets a redesigned front fascia which sports sweptback headlamps with edgy design, hexagonal grille and revamped bumper with a sporty design. The side profile is a typical Swift and continues to feature sloping roof design.

The rear end of the new Swift has been tweaked to look a lot more compact and compete with the current design trend. The tail lights have been redesigned to give it a refreshed look, unlike the current model.

The interior of the new Swift has been revamped, the inside of the car features a new steering wheel and touchscreen infotainment system. The other features include automatic climate control steering mounted controls, cruise control, engine start/stop button and heated front seats.

The 2017 Suzuki Swift comes loaded with features such as LED headlamps, 16-inch alloy wheels, Halogen fog lamps, ORVM-mounted turn indicators, keyless entry and rear-fog-lamps. All these features are expected to make its way in the India-spec model.

The Japanese-spec model is available in two engine options. The 1-litre three-cylinder petrol engine and 1.2-litre diesel engine producing 100hp and 89bhp respectively. The diesel engine is also available with Suzuki's mild-hybrid technology.

When launched in India, the 2017 Swift will be powered by the existing 1.2-litre K-Series petrol engine and the 1.3-litre DDiS diesel engine. The India-spec model is expected to come with five-speed manual gearbox and an AMT variant will be also offered.

The safety features on the 2017 Suzuki Swift includes seven airbags, ABS with EBD, reverse parking camera with sensors, ESP and Hill hold control. When launched in India the 2017 Swift is expected to carry a price tag of around Rs 5 lakh to Rs 8 lakh ex-showroom.
