Apart from this, she stated that the Suzuki logo on the old car was in the grille. But on the new car, it is above the grille. Next up, she highlights that the old model comes equipped with a more rounded bonnet.

However, the one on the new car is more pronounced and gives birth to a continuous body line that runs across the entire car. Following this, she then compares the headlights, which are sleeker on the new car with L-shaped LED DRLs.

Side profile

Next up, she shows the side profile of the two cars. She states that both the base spec trims come with 16-inch alloy wheels. The host adds that both the Motion and Ultra variants get the same design of the 16-inch alloys.

However, the one on the top-spec variant comes with a diamond-cut finish. She adds that the old Swift’s rear door handles were placed in the C-pillar. But the new car gets them like traditional cars.

Rear end

Lastly, the host moves to the rear of the car and shares her opinion on the design. She states that overall the design and layout have been retained. However, the car now gets clear LED taillights with smart-looking internals. She then adds that it also gets a slightly bigger rear spoiler as well.

The presenter first takes the seat inside the old Swift. She mentions that it features an all-black interior with hard plastics all around. It gets an integrated touchscreen, manual air conditioning system, manually operated rear windows, and basic layout.

Following this, she moves inside the interior of the new Swift. Immediately, she states that in the beginning, she did not like the new Swift’s interior. However, it has now become better after spending time in the old car. She states that it looks a lot better and feels more airy.

She attributes this feeling to the dual-tone white and black color of the Swift. Apart from this, she adds the car now gets a much better 9-inch infotainment screen, automatic climate control, and ventilated front seats. The presenter also adds that the seats, although the same, are also finished in a slightly lighter color which looks smarter.
