Suzuki Philippines has launched the facelifted Suzuki Swift and Suzuki Swift Dzire in the country, which starts from PHP 628,000 and PHP 568,000, respectively. Both models are manufactured and exported by Maruti Suzuki India.
Identical to the model sold in India, both the 2015 Suzuki Swift and 2015 Suzuki Swift Dzire feature new front-end designs, although the facelift in the sub-4m Dzire is more substantial. It gets a bold single chrome slat, smoked headlamps, and a new intake design with chrome bezels for the fog lamps. The facelift in the Swift hatchback is minimal, featuring an updated grille and fog lamp housings.
Inside, the fabric seat upholstery has a new diagonal pattern, and the rear seats offer 60:40 split ratio for increased practicality. The integrated audio system has also been swapped to a navigation-ready touchscreen system capable of playing many audio and video formats.
Both models are powered by the 1.2-liter K12 petrol engine with VVT, which produces 87 hp at 6,000 rpm and 114 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm. Transmission options include a basic 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic gearbox.
