ChinaCarTimes have got their hands on some leaked pictures from the patent office. The pictures reveal the Suzuki Swift Dzire sketches, clearly hinting on an impending launch

The Suzuki Swift Dzire has been on a world tour since the time it was launched in India. After going halfway through the world, China could hugely boost the sales.

China, being a predominantly petrol market, is expected to get the petrol model of the Dzire powered by a 1.2 K series petrol engine with 86 bhp. It could be mated to a 5 speed manual transmission or a 4 speed automatic.

There is also a good possibility of Suzuki customizing the Swift Dzire for Chinese likings. Clearly, China does not provide any sub 4 meter tax benefits so the wheelbase could be extended owing to popularity of the LWB models in China.

Details are a bit sketchy right now. We will keep you updated on any further progress in this direction.
