The Suzuki Swift (Japanese: スズキ・スイフト, Suzuki Suifuto) is a subcompact car produced by Suzuki. The vehicle is classified as a B-segment marque in the European single market, a segment referred to as a supermini in the British Isles. Prior to this, the "Swift" nameplate had been applied to the rebadged Suzuki Cultus in numerous export markets since 1983 and became its own model since 2004. Currently, the Swift is positioned between the Ignis and Baleno in Suzuki hatchback global line-up.

The Suzuki Swift began in 1983 as a marketing and manufacturing rebadge of the Suzuki Cultus, a supermini (or subcompact) manufactured and marketed worldwide across three generations and four body configurations—three-door hatchback, four-door sedan, five-door hatchback and two-door convertible—and using the Suzuki G engine family.
The Swift was marketed in the Japanese domestic market (JDM) as the Cultus and elsewhere as the Suzuki Swift, Suzuki Forsa, Chevrolet Swift, Chevrolet Sprint and Sprint Metro, Geo and Chevrolet Metro, Pontiac Firefly, Maruti 1000, Holden Barina and Subaru Justy. Versions of the second generation Cultus were also produced until 2007 in India and the car remains in production until 2016 in Pakistan and China.

In Japan, the Swift nameplate was introduced in 2000 as a replacement for the Suzuki Cultus. Outside Japan, the "Suzuki Ignis" name was used. Both three- and five-door hatchback body styles were offered, although the three-door was not offered as part of the regular lineup in Japan.
The Swift was powered by a new generation of Suzuki inline-four gasoline engines, the M family. Engine displacements of 1.3- and 1.5-litres were offered, both with a five-speed manual transmission or optional four-speed automatic. The vehicle was available with either front- or four-wheel drive. Vehicles fitted with the 1.3-litre engine were designated HT51S, with the 1.5-litre version assigned HT81S.
The three-door body variant formed the basis of the Swift Sport in Japan, or Ignis Sport in export markets. Introduced in 2003, it featured redesigned bumpers and was fitted with a higher-output version of the 1.5-litre engine. The Sport ceased production in 2005, with the regular Swift (SE-Z trim) remaining until 2006 for the Japanese marke and sold side by side with the first generation global version Swift since November 2004.

The global version of the first generation Swift was debuted at the Paris Motor Show in September 2004. The design of the Swift was previewed on the Concept S and Concept S2 concept cars at auto shows, in the years leading up to its launch. This generation of the Swift marked a significant departure with the previous Cultus-based models, with Suzuki redesigning the vehicle as less of a "low price alternative" subcompact and more of a "sporty" subcompact. The Swift's design and driving characteristics focused on the European market with its chassis refined through a road-testing program across Europe.
Since its global launch in 2005, which was kicked off with a marketing campaign fronted by the footballer Cristiano Ronaldo in many European countries, the Swift has recorded above forecast sales in most markets. In Japan, sales figures have been twice the forecast and in many European markets, the model has been a runaway success.
The Swift was available with 1.3- and 1.5-litre petrol engines, rated at 91 metric horsepower (67 kW; 90 hp) and 102–110 metric horsepower (75–81 kW; 101–108 hp), respectively. It was produced in Hungary, India, Indonesia, Japan, Pakistan and by Chang'an Motors in China. In China and Japan, only the five-door body is available, and a four-wheel drive is an option for the 1.3- and 1.5-litre petrol engines. A 91 metric horsepower (67 kW; 90 hp) 1.2-litre engine fitted with an automatic continuously variable transmission (CVT) was offered in front-wheel drive only. In Europe, the Swift was launched in three- or five-door hatchback forms, with 1.3- and 1.5-litre petrol engines, and a 1.3-litre DDiS engine supplied by Fiat. The 1.3 petrol is also available with an automated manual transmission or with a four-wheel drive. Both the 1.3-litre and 1.5-litre petrol models are available with four-wheel drive and hold the chassis numbers, ZD11S and ZD21S.
Pak Suzuki Motor Company Limited will discontinue the Suzuki Swift first generation in Pakistan in August 2021.
In Indonesia, there were several special editions based from the 1.5-litre Swift with Swift Sport appearance, known as GT, GT2 and GT3. There was also a special model called GTS with bodykits.
Swift Sport (RS416; 2005-2012)Edit
In October 2005, Suzuki launched the Sport version of the new Swift in Japan named Swift RS, and in September 2006 the model was introduced in most European markets. Named "Swift Sport", it is powered by an enhanced M16A unit, a high-revving 1.6-litre, naturally aspirated DOHC VVT four-cylinder engine with an 11.1:1 compression ratio, high lift cams, forged pistons, and strengthened valve springs. The 1.6-litre engine produces 125 metric horsepower (92 kW; 123 hp) and 148 newton-metres (109 lb⋅ft) torque. At 3,765 mm (148.2 in), the car is 70 mm (2.8 in) longer than the standard Swift. The Swift Sport features sportier bumpers and spoilers, a stiffer suspension, twin exhaust pipes, red sport seats (with Recaro seats optional) and four-wheel disc brakes on 16-inch wheels. The European Swift Sport features five-speed manual transmission, the three-door body variant, 17-inch wheels (16-inch also available) and electronic stability control (ESC).
Maruti Suzuki SwiftEdit
The Maruti Suzuki Swift was launched in India in 25 May 2005 with a 1.3-litre petrol engine. Later, in early 2007, Maruti introduced the Swift with a Fiat-sourced 1.3 L DDiS engine. In 2010, due to the new BS-IV emission norms, Maruti replaced the 1.3 L petrol engine with a 1.2 L K-series engine.
Suzuki Swift DZireEdit
The first generation Maruti Suzuki DZire is the sedan version of the first generation Suzuki Swift. The Swift DZire was launched on 26 March 2008.
Swift Range ExtenderEdit
The Suzuki Swift Plug-in hybrid concept car was unveiled at the 2009 Tokyo Motor Show. The Swift Plug-in concept has an all-electric range of about 30 km (19 mi) drawing on a lithium-ion battery pack. When the battery is running low a small 0.66 L engine kicks in to power a generator that charges the battery.
In May 2010, Suzuki announced a demonstration program with 60 Swift Plug-in hybrids in Japan scheduled to start by late 2010. Initially sales of the Suzuki Swift plug-in hybrid electric vehicle were scheduled to begin by 2013.
The plug-in car is powered by a 55 kW (74 hp) and 180 N⋅m (130 lb⋅ft) AC synchronous motor and a 2.66 kWh Li-ion battery pack. Average fuel consumption, calculated by combining fuel consumption during operation on electric power from grid charge and fuel consumption during hybrid operation after depletion of the battery pack is 37.6 km/L on the JC08 cycle (88.4 mpg US, or 2.7 L/100 km). Grid charge time for the battery is approximately 1.5 hours @ 100 V and 1 h at 200 V.
In March 2014, Maruti Suzuki announced that it will provide several copies of the production version, renamed "Swift Range Extender" as part of a pilot project to be conducted in partnership with the Indian government during 2014 to 2015. According to Maruti's tests, the Swift Range Extender delivers a combined fuel efficiency of up to 48.2 km/L (136 mpg‑imp; 113 mpg‑US), with an all-electric range of 25.5 km (15.8 mi). The battery takes nearly 90 minutes to get fully charged. Maruti is awaiting for the implementation of India's National Electric Mobility Mission Plan 2020, which will define the government's purchase incentives for plug-in electric cars.
Second generation (AZG; 2010)Edit
|Body and chassis|
|Wheelbase||2,430 mm (95.7 in)|
|Width||1,695 mm (66.7 in)|
|Curb weight||960–1,090 kg (2,120–2,400 lb)|
|Successor||Suzuki Baleno (Indonesia)|
The second generation Swift was unveiled on 26 August 2010. It went on sale in Japan on 18 September 2010. The second generation Swift is being produced at Suzuki's plant in Hungary started in 11 June 2010 and it will be supplied across Europe. The new car has its wheelbase extended by 50 millimeters over the previous generation and has many visual updates. While the new car looks different from the old one, its design is an evolution of the radical first generation styling with a longer and more rounded appearance. During September 2010, Suzuki in the United Kingdom released the second generation Swift onto British roads.
The new generation is expected to feature a 1.2-litre VVT petrol engine (K12B) developing 92 bhp. In some countries, the second generation of Suzuki Swift uses a 1.4-litre VVT petrol engine (K14B) which produces 95 hp.
In Thailand, the Swift is built locally since March 2012 and is part of the Thai government's eco-car program. The car is sold with a CVT automatic transmission on GA, GL and GLX variants; GA and GL variants are also offered with a five-speed manual transmission without anti-lock brakes. Another variant with Japanese market RS bodykit was later added as RX trim.
For the Indonesian market, the Swift was launched on 20 September 2012 at the 20th Indonesia International Motor Show and sold in two trim levels, GL and GX, with manual or automatic transmission. The GS trim level was added on 6 June 2015, which was launched at the 2015 Jakarta Fair. Sales of the Swift in that market were ended in April 2017. It was replaced by the Baleno hatchback in August 2017, which is slightly bigger and positioned in the same class as the Swift, as the third generation Swift is not released in that market.
For the Malaysian market, the Swift was released on 12 July 2013.
As with the previous generation, a four-door notchback saloon model was developed for India by Maruti in 2012. This is shorter than the previous generation; now at 3.99 m (157 in) it falls underneath an important tax threshold at four metres of length.
For 2013, Suzuki updated the Swift with some minor cosmetic changes such as a revised front bumper, L-shaped LED daytime running lights on the foglamp housings, fresh 16-inch wheels, LED-type high-level brake lamp and new seat fabric design.
For the Japanese market, it features Suzuki's newly developed DUAL JET ENGINE as well as Suzuki's ENE-CHARGE system and ECO-COOL, implemented from the Suzuki Wagon R. The new DUAL JET ENGINE uses the dual-injection system on its 1.2 L petrol engine and it works by increasing vaporisation, making combustion more efficient. It channels fuel to two intake ports instead of only one per cylinder. With the DUALJET ENGINE and the ENE-CHARGE, fuel economy is now up to 26.4 km/L, calculated based on JC08 mode.
Swift Sport (AZG416; 2012–2017)Edit
The 2012 Suzuki Swift Sport is powered by a revised 1.6-litre four-cylinder (M16A) engine producing 100 kW (130 hp) and 160 N⋅m (120 lb⋅ft).
