From the picture, we can see that Suzuki might retain the overall profile of the Swift. Its profile has now become iconic since it has not been changes since the Swift first debuted.

On the sides, there are multi-spoke alloy wheels finished in silver colour. The A and B pillars are finished in black colour.  The rear door handles are still placed on the C-pillar. This gives a three-door effect to the hatchback and enhances the sportiness. The turn indicators are placed on the outside rearview mirrors.

The rear has been redesigned heavily. The tail lamp has a similar shape but they are redesigned. Now, they are using LED elements, there is a black strip that connects both the tail lamps. There is a skid plate finished in black also. Other things that we notice is a shark-fin antenna, rear defogger light integrated in the rear skid plate, a high mounted stop lamp and a rear wiper with washer.

It is important to note that this is just a render. The final design of the 2022 Swift will look different. Moreover, we have not spotted any test mules of the new generation Swift neither in India nor on international roads.

Other details

Some details about the new generation Swift were leaked last year. It will use a more advanced and light weight version of the Heartect platform. This would help in increasing the overall weight of the hatchback. The manufacturer might also makes some improvements to the rigidity and the safety rating of the Swift.

The updated hatchback could use a slightly reworked version of the 1.2-litre naturally aspirated, four-cylinder petrol engine. It will now come mated to a hybrid technology which will help in increasing fuel efficiency and reducing emissions. There would also be engine idle/start stop system on offer.

However, in India, the Swift would continue to come with the existing 1.2-litre DualJet VVT petrol engine. It produces 90 PS of max power and 113 Nm of peak torque. It comes mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox or a 5-speed AMT.
