First revealed in Japan back in 2016, the all-new Suzuki Swift is finally bound to make its official launch in Thailand this February…that’s if the reports are true.
According to Headlightmag, the Thailand-spec Swift will have a new 1.2L gasoline engine capable of producing 91 hp and 188 Nm of torque. This mill will be paired with either a 5-speed manual or a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT).
Apart from its youthful and sleeker design, the all-new Suzuki Swift will be built on the brand’s new HEARTECT platform, which is said to be both lightweight and strong. It will also come with a safety package that includes Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), and Electronic Stability Program (ESP).
In terms of its interior, not much has been said but it’s expected to come with the same redesigned cabin seen in its Japanese counterpart. The Swift may also come with a large touchscreen head unit equipped with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
All these updates sound exciting considering the Swift has yet to receive a major overhaul in the past years and Suzuki Philippines Inc. (SPI) has kept mum about its arrival locally. Hopefully, we can get confirmation soon.
