An intriguing image of the updated Suzuki Swift has emerged online and despite its low resolution, it’s certainly provides us with our best look yet at the model.
Earlier in the year, a number of apparent official renderings of the next-generation Swift emerged online, showcasing a much more modern and flowing design. This particular image also shows the Swift with a new look but it differs on a number of fronts from those renderings and, of course, the outgoing model.
For starters, it has been fitted with a set of distinctive headlights with more curved edges than the current car. Additionally, the inner design of the headlight units themselves have been refined. Other noteworthy elements include the new fog lights and the black fog flight surrounds which stretch across the entire width of the front fascia. Unsurprisingly, there’s also a new grille.
Other points of difference are hard to notice from this single image but there does appear to be a contrasting black section at the top of the C-pillar, as depicted in March’s renderings.
Alongside its new design, the updated Swift will bring with it a new-and-improved Sport model. It is set to be powered by the turbo 1.4-liter four-cylinder of the Vitara S and should deliver an identical 140 hp. It will then be mated to a six-speed manual transmission.
