Almost new buying guide: Suzuki Swift Car News

A mid-life review in 2021 subtly updated the Swift’s styling, including a new grille. Front and rear LED headlights also became standard across the range. The car also got a new entry-level specification SZ-L, with adaptive cruise control, rear-view camera, 7.0-inch touchscreen and 16-inch wheels included as standard.

Suzuki has also supplied the Mk3 Swift with a range of powerful and efficient engines to match the car’s new levels of stiffness – and a hearty Swift Sport remains in the range.

The SZ3 is available with a 1.2-liter Dualjet petrol engine with 89 hp, 65 mpg (WLTP combined) and 98 g/km. The mid-range SZ-T cars have a more powerful turbocharged 1.0-liter Boosterjet petrol engine, with 109 hp, 61.1 mpg and 104 g/km. A mild-hybrid variant, consisting of a 1.0-litre Boosterjet petrol engine and an integrated starter-generator, is available on top-end SZ5 cars, as is Suzuki’s Allgrip four-wheel-drive system.

As for the Swift Sport, it comes with a 1.4-litre Boosterjet turbo petrol engine and a sportier look thanks to new front and rear bumpers, dual exhausts and a front spoiler. It makes 129 hp and 173 lb-ft, enough for a 0-62 mph sprint time of 9.1 seconds. This is the choice of the scale if you are looking for a more progressive rhythm.
