2017 Suzuki Swift: Styling Changes and New Features

The new Swift will definitely look more handsome from the current model. The car manufacturer added lots of new cues, so the hatchback looks more angular and aggressive, while the wider stance and bigger shoulders makes the 2017 Suzuki Swift pretty mighty-looking. Except it will be widened, the small car won’t be that small as it is now, because the carmaker decided to add several more inches in the length. On the other hand, the hatch will be lowered, so the 2017 Swift seems quite dynamic and smooth, especially due the sloping roof, which is so evident. The new interior is pretty much the same as Baleno’s. The dashboard and center stack are completely redesigned, and feature the producer’s new “V” shape. A multi-function steering wheel is also upgraded, while there is also a new instrument cluster with a color LCT touchscreen. The new infotainment sports a seven-inch touchscreen with plenty of features including Apple’s CarPlay. A rear-view camera comes as an option, but the adaptive cruise control system is standard part of equipment.

Engine Options and Gearbox

Under the hood, the stylish hatchback will use three instead two engines. There will be an updated 1.2-liter Dualjet engine with 89 horsepower and 89 pound-feet. Yes, the updated engine delivers less power, but this won’t be the problem because the car uses a lighter platform. In case you need more power, the 2017 Suzuki Swift will also have a new 1.0-liter, three-cylinder Boosterjet with 110 horses and 125 lb-ft of torque, as well as the 1.6-liter mill, which will be totally carryover. The engines will be paired to a standard CVT, and optional and new six-speed automatic gearbox.

Price Range

The starting price of the next generation Swift is estimated to be around $14,420, while the Sport model could easily reach $20,000.
