The next generation Swift will be based on the lightweight platform sourced from theĀ Baleno. ItĀ promises better crash protection, and uses up to 41 percent of tensile steel for its construction, making it lighter than the outgoing model.

Details on its engine lineup are not confirmed, although it’s likely to feature the 1.2L K-Series in addition to the 1.0L Boosterjet. The 1.3L DDiS could be replaced with Suzuki’s self-developed diesel engine. Gearbox choices may include 5-speed manual, an AMT or even a CVT unit.
