New Suzuki Swift

Suzuki Motor Corporation has released the first pictures of the all-new Suzuki Swift to be launched at the Paris Motor Show on September 23.

Based on the rally-inspired Concept-S shown at the 2002 Paris show, and the open-top Concept-S2 sports car revealed at the 2003 Frankfurt show, the Suzuki Swift 3 and 5-door hatchbacks are Suzuki’s vision of the compact car for Europe.

Throughout its development, the design and driving characteristics of the new Swift have been firmly focused on the European market, and the new chassis has been refined through an extensive programme of road-testing across Europe. The car will be built at the Magyar Suzuki Corporation plant in Hungary.

The new Swift will be available from spring 2005 with a choice of 1.3 litre and 1.5 litre petrol engines, the latter with variable valve timing, plus a 1.3 litre diesel engine.
