The Malaysian wing of Suzuki has unveiled the third generation Swift into the Malaysian market. The New Malaysian Swift is indeed bigger and meaner than the outgoing one.
The new Swift is available in 2 variants, GLX 1.4 VVt and GLX-S, the latter comes with a body kit; rest are same as the former. This car is powered by the 1.4-Liter K14B Engine, producing 95 PS at 6,000 RPM and 130 Nm at 4,000 RPM. A 4-Speed Automatic Box with straight shift pattern is coupled with the engine. According to the company, the gearbox has been reworked and not identical with the outgoing one.
The length of the car is increased by 95 mm and the wheelbase is 50 mm longer. Width has been increased by 5 mm and the height of the car remains unchanged.
For other new bits, an improved steering system is present for better response and a more linear feel. Reworked front MacPherson and rear torsion beam suspension system, 16-Spoke alloy wheels wrapped with 185/55 section tyres, solid rear disc brakes with ABS, EBD and Brake Assist makes the 1,000 Kg car even safer.
As for interior changes, there’s a new black and silver color scheme with chrome garnish and black key tones. 2-Din music system with USB and MP3 connectivity, automatic climate control, key-less entry and push button start ensure more convenience.
Some new color trims along with all these features sure make the new Swift irresistible! A Sport version of the Third Generation Swift is also due for the Malaysian market.
