Japanese car maker Suzuki launched a new variant of the Swift hatchback in Philippines. The Swift will now be available with a 1.2. The 1.2 K12M motor in the Swift 1.2 is sourced from India which is also offered on the Swift Dzire.
The Swift 1.2 variant promises even better fuel efficiency while retaining the Swift DNA. Designed to appeal to the wider audience, particularly the young professionals and first time car owners who love the sporty style of this subcompact car, the Swift 1.2 boasts a maximum output of 87 Hp @ 6,000 rpm and a maximum torque of 114 Nm @ 4,000 rpm given its 1.2 L engine displacement. Swift 1.2 will be available in manual and automatic transmissions and will be priced at PH 608,000 and PH 648,000, respectively.
On the outside the Swift 1.2 comes with a new grille and turn indicators on the ORVMs. On the inside the Swift 1.2 retains the traditional dashboard but the rear seats are shaped to offer more knee and legroom.
The new Swift variant will be available in Blazing Red, Glistening Grey, Silky Silver, Pearl Arctic White, and Midnight Black color options.
