Refreshed Suzuki Swift

Suzuki Malaysia refreshed its Suzuki Swift hatchback, now comes in GLX and GXS guises. The GLX cost RM 75,788, a couple of grand more than outgoing model. The GXS comes in at RM81,888. Opting for GXS gained you leather seats, V-kool tint and a so-called ThreeBond Ultra Glass Coating Neo.

The car essentially is a comestic updates, perhaps as a gap filler while the third generation making its way here. Updates made are new, deeper front bumper with sportier side skirts.

At the rear, rear combi gained a new internal graphics, while the rear bumper get a new garnish design, complete with honeycomb mesh. The 'expressively' styled spoiler complete the rear styling enhancement.

The 'sportier' rear bumper honeycomb mesh however, put a perfect contrast to the down-pointing, small diameter exhaust pipe. Whay can't they put a nicer muffler cutter? The car comes in five color as before.

Bayside Blue
Serene Silver
Superior White
Supreme Red
Tranquility Black

As far as eye can see, that's all for the changes. The drivetrain is as per original, which is 1.5 l M15A VVT that still soldiers on with 4 speed AT. To recap, the engine produce 101bhp@6000 rpm and 133Nm@4000 rpm. There are no changes for the interior. 

The car is a quite a successful seller for Suzuki, with 19,000 unit has been sold since its launched. Now Suzuki, when is the new model coming in?
