Suzuki PH launches a new variant of the compact car Swift — the older model is Swift 1.4 which is priced at P749k (MT) and P78k (AT), the newest model is now out and is way affordable than the previous model.
In the launch earlier today, Suzuki PH announced that the new model looks exactly the same as the previous one, but has improvements with the new variant — the all-new Swift 1.2L.
The latest variant of the subcompact Swift boasts a maximum output of 87 hp @ 6,000 rpm and a maximum torque of 114 Nm @ 4,000 rpm. This India-made version of the Swift features a minimum ground clearance of 170 mm, approximately 30 mm higher than the 1.4 L Swift.
“We are introducing the Swift 1.2 to the Philippines to make the well-loved Suzuki Swift available to a wider audience. At Suzuki, we are continuously innovating to make our products responsive to the needs of the markets where we operate. This new variant will offer the same great value and best in class performance of the Suzuki Swift in a much more affordable package,” shares Suzuki Philippines President Hiroshi Suzuki.
Not all changes are under the hood.
Turn lights are located on each side mirrors. While most cars will have halogen fog lamps in their high end models, Swift 1.2L has this feature standard in all models. The grill sports a more aggressive look. Inside, the cockpit has the same sporty yet premium look of the Swift 1.4. Creature comforts are presented as audio controls on the steering wheel, and a folding backseat for loading large items.
The all-new Swift 1.2 will be available in Blazing Red, Glistening Grey, Silky Silver, Pearl Arctic White, and Midnight Black colors and will be priced at Php608,000 (MT) and Php648,000 (AT).
Swift 1.2 will be available in all Suzuki dealerships nationwide this July.
