According to a report on Italian website AlVolante, the next generation Swift would be ready by 2016. Suzuki started production of the current generation Swift in Hungary in mid-2010 and commenced manufacturing in Manesar in mid-2011.

Unsurprisingly, the new Swift managed to improve on its predecessor’s groundwork and became India’s best selling car for a brief period.

The Japanese company has not faithfully followed a 6-8 year lifecycle that most automakers plan with their compact cars, some of them have lived along with their predecessors, while some have been around for over 10 years.

The Swift brand is perhaps the most important nameplate in the Suzuki family today. Over 3 million copies are on global motorways today and to secure its future, Suzuki have to keep refreshing and updating it to the changing needs and trends.

There are no details technical available on the Swift replacement but looking at some of the concepts brought to recent motorshows, Suzuki is bound to develop electric and hybrid propulsion systems for cars in the B- and C-Segment.

The Swift hybrid, based on the previous generation model, was displayed at the Delhi Auto Expo last year, as part of the SIAM technology day. At the Tokyo Motor Show in 2011, a plug-in Swift hybrid concept was shown. Slowly but surely, the Swift will move from just being a petrol or a diesel car.

The S-Cross Concept that premieres in Geneva in a few weeks may give us a glimpse into what could inspire the next generation Suzuki family.

    Suzuki or MS will never launch superior spec products in India. That will be against their corporate and business governance & policy. They won’t be able to make profits if they reduce margin and give good quality products which remain rattle free for years.
