Could be manufactured and exported from Thailand or India.

According to Car Advice, the next generation Suzuki Swift will launch in Australia in H2 2017. Like the Baleno, the 2017 Suzuki Swift could be manufactured and exported from India, or continue coming from Suzuki's Thai plant.

For the Australian market, the Swift could offer a 1.0L Boosterjet 3-cyl petrol engine which, in the Baleno, produces 82 kW of power and 160 Nm of torque. It's unclear if Suzuki will continue offering the 1.4L K14B four-cylinder naturally aspirated engine producing 70 kW and 130 Nm of torque. The Boosterjet variant will be paired with a 6-speed auto as standard, sending power to the front wheels.

We are not sure if the next generation Suzuki Swift Sport will launch alongside the regular Swift, or at a later time. It is rumoured to pack a 1.4L Boosterjet 4-cylinder petrol engine that produces 103 kW (138.07 hp) and 220 Nm of torque, sent to the wheels via Suzuki's ALLGRIP  AWD system.
