Similar to the Maruti Swift RS, the Suzuki Swift 1.2 RS is based on the Suzuki Swift 1.2 GL manual which is a very popular configuration of the small hatchback in the country. The exterior has been treated with addition of special dark blue-finished front and rear spoilers and special dark blue-finished side skirts to make the car look lower and give it a sporty stance. Other exterior highlights include custom dark machined rims on Goodyear Dura tyres, special dark blue sporty decals and RS lettering, and a tailgate spoiler.

Inside, in addition to the Suzuki Swift 1.2 GL’s standard equipment, the Suzuki Swift 1.2 RS features custom seat covers. Speaking of standard equipment, the RS variant is packed with a four-speaker sound system with Bluetooth and USB, dual-front airbags and ABS.
