Based on the first generation Suzuki Swift, which is still manufactured and sold by Changan-Suzuki, the special edition features an exclusive two-tone wine red exterior paintwork and contrasting white roof, which improves the retro appeal. There are also a pair of white stripes running across the hood, while the roof has a body color stripe.

It gets extra black plastic body cladding, 15-inch alloy rims, a rear spoiler and a sporty body kit. Inside, the distinguishing features are the sporty front seats in wine red and gray with 20th Anniversary Edition badges, and sporty pedals.
