The 2017 Suzuki Swift hatchback gets a smooth flowing exterior with a large hexagonal grille with a dash of chrome. The vehicle sports new headlamps and diamond cut styled alloy wheels.

Mechanically, the India-bound 2017 Swift will continue to be powered by the existing 1.2-litre petrol and a 1.3-litre diesel engine. Based on the Baleno platform, the new Swift might also get a much talked about 1.0-litre BoosterJet turbo-petrol engine which will be offered in the upcoming Baleno RS which is likely to launch in first quarter of next year.
Speaking about the interior, the vehicle might get a revised steering wheel and new sporty instrument cluster. As for top spec-version, it will get a touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and MirrorLink compatibility. In terms of safety, depending on the variant, the vehicle will be offered with features such dual airbags, ABS, rear parking camera/sensors, all power windows and more. As for the pricing aspect, the vehicle might be priced around a similar range.
