New Swift launch

Suzuki has announced that its new Swift will reach UK showrooms on April 15, with prices starting from £7,499.

Variants include a five-speed manual five door 90bhp 1.3 GL and 100bhp 1.5 GLX models at £7,799 and £8,999 respectively, and a four-speed automatic 1.5 GLX priced at £9,824.

They’re joined in June by the entry-level three door 1.3 GL manual at £7,499.

All models feature front, side and curtain airbags, radio/CD player, remote central locking and immobiliser, electric front windows, electric and heated door mirrors, steering wheel-mounted audio controls and tinted glass, while the GLX gains keyless entry and start, air conditioning, alloy wheels, and front fog lamps.

September will see the arrival of a 1.3 litre DDi diesel model, while next year the range is to be expanded with a cabriolet variant with folding metal roof. A 1.6-litre GTI derivative will follow in June.

The Swift 1.3 litre reaches 0-62mph in 11 seconds and has a top speed of 109mph. The manual 1.5 litre model has a 0-62mph time of 10 seconds and reaches a top speed of 115mph.
