The third generation Suzuki Swift landed in South Africa in June, ready to fill the very big shoes of its predecessor.
The first three months of retailing within the South African market has proven that this compact hatch delivers on every expectation set by the first two generations of Swifts.
For the 2018 model, Suzuki’s designers have reinterpreted the Swift’s visual signature and added a few new styling elements such as rear door handles in the C-pillar. This makes the new model both completely new and completely Swift.
The all new Swift has a more muscular stance thanks to a new shoulder line that now runs form the front door handles to the front and rear lights and widening across the wheel arches. At the rear, the line edges over the new ear lamps, while at the front it skirts the headlamps and touches the upper edges of the new polygonal grille.
The rear door handles have been moved to the blacked out section of the C-pillar, which helps create a balanced look and a sportier side profile.
A new grille along with a large Suzuki badge and a wide and narrow secondary grille creates a particularly striking front design. These elements visually lift the height of the nose, while retaining aerodynamic efficiency.
An integrated bulge in the luggage door at the rear rounds off the shoulder line, with an additional high-level LED stop lamp that is integrated into the discreet roof-spoiler. The rear brake lights also incorporate LED technology.
The GL model can be distinguished from the GA model by its wheel cover design, front fog lights and colour-coded side
mirrors with integrated indicators.
