Based on the 5-door Swift.
The Suzuki Swift X-Tra special edition for Germany has been presented at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show. It is based on the Swift 5-door model, and sells for a premium of EUR 900 (INR 67,000) over the five-door Swift variant in Germany.
The Swift X-Tra features LED daytime running lights, a chrome grille, silver-black polished 16-inch alloy wheels, and privacy glass. On the inside, the variant receives violet decorative seams on the leather wrapped steering wheel, the same on the exclusive seat cushion and on the shift boot. Features like pollen filter for the air conditioning system, cruise control, an MP3 compatible CD radio with USB input, and steering mounted controls are offered in the special edition model.
There are no mechanical changes on the special edition. The same 1.2-litre 4-cylinder petrol engine with variable valve timing (VVT) is used, that produces 94 hp at 6,000 rpm and 118 Nm at 4,800 rpm.
In the German market, the Swift X-Tra is priced at EUR 15,490 (INR 11.61 lakhs).
