Posted on: Jul 12, 2013 - 11:45am IST
Regular Indian Autos Blog readers would be aware that the 2013 Suzuki Swift facelift was leaked nearly a month ago. Following that, Suzuki have sent us their images and the news release confirming the update today.
2013 Suzuki Swift exterior:
As we said earlier, the LED daytime running lights in the front bumper (which seem to be a direct lift from the Hyundai i20) is the only giveaway that this is a facelifted Swift. Apart from that, Suzuki is also offering a high mounted LED stoplight.
Silver detailing to the lower front bumper completes the list of updates. For the UK markets, Suzuki has introduced a new Boost Blue Metallic color. For non-alloy wheel versions, the wheel covers are different.
While we can hear many of you saying that these additions can hardly be considered as a cosmetic makeover, Suzuki believes that the styling of the Swift is still fresh.
2013 Suzuki Swift interior:
The following details are new inside the 2013 Suzuki Swift –
- Newly designed seat fabrics with blue and grey lined accents
- Auto Up function for driver side power window
- Power folding wing mirrors
- Auto headlamps
When the Swift entered India, certain features were removed. We think Maruti may consider including them now, given that they are found in the competition. These features include a Push Button keyless start, cruise control and Bluetooth connectivity.
