The car is going places that the old one never did. After being launched in the South American continent (Uruguay and Chile), the Dzire has invaded Africa. Elsecom Suzuki, which is in charge of Suzuki cars in Algeria, has launched the Swift Dzire in GA, GL, GLX variants. Prices are as follows in Algerian dinar:

Under the hood, the Suzuki Swift Dzire will be powered by a 1.2 K series engine with VVT generating 85 HP and mated to a 5 speed manual. The equipment list includes:
- Dual airbags
