Suzuki has unveiled the latest iteration of the Swift. In its fourth generation, the hatchback has evolved into a sophisticated, smart compact car with a crisp design and advanced safety features.
The all-new model builds upon the legacy of its predecessors, offering a driving experience that prioritizes comfort, efficiency and safety. The Swift has been sold in 169 countries and regions with accumulated sales of over nine million units as of October 2023.
On sale from spring 2024, the fourth-gen Swift offers a spacious and comfortable cabin equipped with ergonomic features to elevate the driving experience.
The cockpit has been designed for an immersive and ergonomic driving experience, featuring a center cluster and controls that are subtly angled toward the driver to ensure ease of use. The wraparound, dual-tone black and light-grey dashboard and front door trim, with satin plating and satin dark silver paint accents, give the cabin a “sporty, dynamic look”, the auto maker says.
A 9in HD capacitive touchscreen delivers a quick and accurate response, and features smartphone linkage for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto through Wi-Fi and USB, voice recognition and Bluetooth music playback, and also displays information about the vehicle’s status.
Millimeter-wave radar and a monocular camera are employed to detect vehicles, bicycles and pedestrians in front of the vehicle and help mitigate frontal, diagonal and lateral collisions. If a collision seems possible, audio and visual warnings are issued to alert the driver. If the driver brakes with insufficient force, brake assist automatically engages to help slow the vehicle.
There is also a camera built into the instrument panel which monitors the driver’s eyes and face. If the system detects that the driver is drowsy, falling asleep or looking away from the road, it sounds a warning alarm and displays an alert message on the information display.
