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.

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.

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.

    Why are they not investing few rupees in R&D to bring better engine technologies to reduce fuel consumption/carbon footprint? A 600 cc ecoboost type engine can power this type of car better than their current 1200 cc engine. What a shame for a largest car manufacturing company in the land of frugal and brilliant engineers!
