Suzuki Malaysia Automobile has officially announced order-taking for a facelifted version of the Swift with three 1.4-litre variants priced from an estimated RM59,000 to RM73,000 on-the-road without insurance.
The revised line-up sees the the introduction of a new entry-level GA variant slotting below the existing GL and GLX variants, both of which now sport uprated levels of equipment. Available only in one colour, Bayside Blue, the base Swift GA sports 15-inch steel rims with a tyre repair kit.
Moving on to the RM65,000 mid-spec GL model, this variant incorporates features carried over from the pre-facelift GLX model, featuring silver garnish on its newly-designed bumper, 16-inch alloys, standard audio, and manual climate control. Colours offered with the GL spec include Supreme Red, Olive Gray, Bayside Blue, Superior White, and a brand new Lagoon Turquoise colour.
Finally, the range-topping GLX model adds front fog lamps, LED daytime running lights, retractable side mirrors with indicators, keyless entry, touchscreen audio with GPS, auto climate control, tilt & telescopic steering with audio controls, and six speakers. The GLX is offered with the same palette of colours as found in the GL.
Mechanically, the Swift remains unchanged from before, with the same 94hp 1.4-litre petrol engine mated with a 4-speed automatic transmission. Safety features such as dual airbags, brake assist (BA), anti-lock brakes (ABS), and electronic brake force distribution (EBD) are standard for all variants. Standard warranty is five years or 150,000km.
