The 2021 Suzuki Swift Series II has been launched in Australia priced from $18,990 drive away. A mid-life update for the current generation Swift, the Series II has updated the car’s styling, standard equipment levels and according to the company, further increased the value equation.
Arriving in dealers this month to accompany the already updated Swift Sport flagship, the 2021 Suzuki Swift range has been slightly rejigged with the GL Navigator sitting at the entry point to the range, the mid-spec GL Navigator Plus (which replaced the previous GL Navigator Safety Pack) in the middle and the top-spec GLX Turbo sitting atop the regular Swift range.
In addition to new styling features such as a redesigned grille, new alloy wheels and interior trim changes, new standard equipment has been added to the whole range including auto up windows, a digital speedometer and rear door speakers.
The GL Navigator Plus and GLX Turbo also add blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, rear parking sensors and heated mirrors.
The entry-level GL Navigator still does without active safety tech such as auto emergency braking (AEB) however – something even entry level variants of the new Toyota Yaris range feature as standard (among many other safety and tech features), though the Swift is a lot less expensive to buy.
The lineup is otherwise unchanged with the GL Navigator and GL Navigator Plus using a 66kW/120Nm 1.2-litre four-cylinder petrol engine with either a five-speed manual or CVT auto. The GLX Turbo uses an 82kW/160Nm 1.0-litre turbo three-cylinder matched to a six-speed auto while the Sport uses a 103kW/230Nm 1.4-litre turbo with either a six-speed manual or auto.
