Swift 2018 BACK PROFILE
The back view of new Swift is quite attractive, with an integrated spoiler on the top. Its tail lights are little bit squarish like we’ve seen in Ignis and give the new Swift a muscular and sporty look. The back side of the new Swift looks squarer in comparison to the curvy back of 2nd generation Swift.
The Swift inherits its interior design from the Ignis. There’s a stylish and somewhat funky rotary area in the center for climate control. There’s also a stylish tablet (with both android auto and apple car play) which forms the infotainment system. It has round AC vents and flat-bottomed steering wheel with the Suzuki logo in the middle.
The instrument cluster is very clear and comes with TFT display like we seen in Baleno and Ignis and gives you all the required information. The dashboard will be simple, hard and shiny. The visibility of the new Swift is very good even for short height drivers. The Cabin is spacious and has large door pockets with cubbyhole. Space is good and the seats are better than that with a bit of more bolstering all around and offer a lot of under-thigh support.
The back seat opens up a surprising amount of space. There’s a lot of legroom with a lot of headroom as well. Although the width has been increased by approx. 40mm but sitting three adults at a time will be a bit tight.
The big surprise is the boot, it is almost 25% bigger than the previous one, which is a plus point for the new Swift.
Swift 2018 ENGINE
Last but not the least, engines are also good and are carried over from present Swift. New Swift will come with a 1.2-litre petrol engine and 1.3-litre diesel engine. Suzuki is additionally evaluating different engine choices like the new 1.5-litre diesel motor that may eventually replace the 1.3-litre Fiat-sourced unit. New Swift is available in 5-speed manual transmission as well as 5 speed AMT transmission. The engines deliver more efficiency with better mileage. Swift with its new design is much lighter as compared to previous versions, this helps the vehicle to attain stability and generate more power. The new sleek body provides superb handling and proficient suspension.

So this is the new all-new Swift. It is bigger and it got lot more space, a lot more luggage space as well. The new Swift has been changed a lot in terms of styling from all three angles. It is bolder, muscular and much more distinctive.

The expected price range for the new swift is 5L-8L (ex-showroom) which gives a stiff competition to the rivals like Hyundai Grand i10, Ford Figo, Volkswagen Polo and Honda Jazz.
