More mature global model "Swift"

The global strategic model "Swift" launched on January 24, 2000 is a small car with low price and good drivability.

The fourth-generation Swift inherits the concept of the previous generation and adopts Suzuki's new chassis platform "HEARTECT" that combines light weight and high rigidity. While improving safety performance, it is 120kg lighter than the third-generation model, which is more evolved overall.

The fourth-generation Swift is the first to set up a gasoline-electric hybrid model. When the fourth generation was first launched, it was set up as a light oil electric model. On July 12, 2017, it launched a Strong Hybrid model that can be switched to electric driving.

Quietly abolishing the Strong Hybrid it a move to transform into a new generation?


So far, the major facelift of Swift has taken about 6 years as a cycle. According to this logic, the fourth-generation Swift launched in December 2016, the major facelift should fall between 2022 and 2023.

The fourth-generation Swift will quietly implement some improvements in September 2022, abolishing the new Strong Hybrid model added on July 12, 2017. This move is regarded as a preparation for conversion to the next-generation model.

During the same period, there were also sightings of the fifth-generation Swift test vehicle overseas. It is speculated that the fifth-generation Swift will continue to adopt the fourth-generation HEARTECT chassis platform and the concept inherited from the second-generation model.

The style of the fifth-generation Swift is still recognizable at a glance


Foreign media announced the expected CG drawing based on the fifth-generation Swift test vehicle.

The fifth-generation Swift predicts that the CG picture will continue the characteristics of the test vehicle. The Swift can be recognized immediately just by looking at the outline of the vehicle, but it adopts more linear designs than before, and the headlights are drawn as polygonal designs.

It is expected that the CG picture will also change the rear door handle to a normal position instead of designing it on the C-pillar. Although the coupe-like car pillar structure is very fashionable, many people complained that the door handle is difficult to open and not easy to use. Therefore, it is speculated that the rear door handle of the fifth-generation Swift will return to the normal design.

Will it debut at the end of 2022 at the earliest? Suzuki HEV will debut one after another?

It is speculated that the fifth generation will not change the route of Swift, and will debut in a more mature appearance as Suzuki's global strategic small car.

It should be launched in the sixth year after the launch of the previous model at the earliest, that is, at the end of 2022, and it is very likely to wait for its debut in 2023.

The fourth-generation Swift is set for the Strong Hybrid model later, and the fifth-generation Swift may be set at the beginning. Suzuki currently only has the Escudo (Taiwanese car name Vitara) as the Strong Hybrid model in the Japanese market, and it should be expanded after 2023.
