2007 Swift Facelift

Old post from
Suzuki has given it’s Suzuki Swift a mid-life facelift, and has added a new variant called the Suzuki Swift Style, giving it some minor changes such as a new grille with dual chrome bars across, as well as a slightly different foglamp insert design. One major technical difference is the base model gets a new 1.2 liter K12B engine option that’s mated to a CVT transmission. The new 1.2 liter K12B makes 90PS at 6,000rpm and 118Nm of torque a 4,400rpm, pretty respectable for a tiny 1.2 liter engine.
Other than that, everything else about the Swift seems pretty much the same. Since the design is pretty pleasant to look at in the first place, perhaps Suzuki is adopting the “if it ain’t broken, don’t fix it” methodology here.
The updated Suzuki Swift Sport gets an altered gear ratio, a new electronic stability control feature, plus it’s redline is increased from 6,800rpm to 7,200rpm.
