Suzuki Applies Some Minor Updates to 2014 Swift Hatch in Europe

Unless you consider LED daytime running lights and exterior mirror mounted turning signals a must, there’s no need to worry about having ordered a 2013 Suzuki Swift, because these are the only noteworthy updates found on the 2014MY hatch that appeared on the Japanese carmaker’s customer website in Belgium.

From the low quality pictures, the interior appears to be unchanged while the same seems to apply to the available engine range (though, Suzuki may have tweaked the powerplants).

We looked around and couldn’t find an official release on the model year update for the European Swift (Suzuki’s other sites continue to have the 2013MY), but we gather it will likely be officially released at the upcoming Frankfurt Auto Show in Germany this September.
