All-New Suzuki Swift Revealed In Leaked Images

We’ve known for quite some time that the next-gen Japanese supermini was on the works, though we had no info what it would look like.

Renderings such as the iK-2 Concept turned into a production Swift were perhaps too conservative from the get go, as these leaked images certainly seem to suggest.

The new Swift that is expected by the end of the year keeps the overall proportions of its predecessor but features sharper styling thanks to completely redesigned headlights, grille and large integrated air vents in the front bumper area, hidden rear door handles and unusually styled C-pillar.

The back of the car features a “floating roofline”, while the taillights now extend into the tailgate. Also, unlike the current model, the new taillight design is bulkier and less streamlined.

The new Swift is rumored to get a new 1.0-liter petrol engine for the entry-level version, whereas the Swift Sport (expected in 2017) could get a 1.4-liter petrol unit attached to a six-speed manual gearbox. The Sport will also feature upgraded brakes, steering and suspension.

  • hot new yorker

    Looks already dated. Interior is so 1995.

    • Six Thousand Times

      Obviously, you were not around in 1995.

  • Vairguy

    Is it me or is there a bit of Hyundai Veloster in this new design? Looks good though.

  • fabri99

    Very nice, I loved last gen. Swift and this is clearly inspired to that.

  • jfalckt

    I really like it, the last Swift was good but needed a bit more substance, let’s hope they still make a Sport version

  • Obsequious Lickspittle

    features sharper styling
    Eh? More bulbous styling. A lot less creases than the current one.
    Fatter is more, obviously.

  • Six Thousand Times

    It is a little too conservative but at least it will be recognisable as a Swift.

  • Dredd

    too ugly

  • haudit

    Immediately recognisable as a Swift without tediously referencing its predecessor in every detail. Audi should take note.

  • Tumbi Mtika

    I love this.
