The four-generation, 2024 Suzuki Swift has been previewed via a concept that’s headed to the ‘Japan Mobility Show 2023’ later this month.
Suzuki’s little Swift – and the cracking Swift Sport – has been on sale in its current third-generation form since 2017. A facelift was introduced in 2020, however, a major update is in order.
Some teaser images have been revealed previewing what the new model could look like. We say ‘could’ because the vehicle destined for the show is described as a “Swift Concept”. A showroom version is likely to be pretty similar, though.
At the front are a set of new-look headlights with darken inner sections for a more sinister look, with a rounded front grille in black giving off fish-mouth vibes, with a fresh lower apron that’s also rounder than the outgoing setup. There’s also some new taillights at the back with sharp C-shape-like patterns, and a fresh low apron.
Suzuki says the concept will boast a “host of advanced safety” technologies. This is an area where the current model is starting to fall behind. So, Suzuki is introducing Dual Sensor Brake Support II (autonomous emergency braking), adaptive high-beam, and a driver monitoring system.
Inside, the dashboard is much more modern, featuring new contours and angles that blend with the door trims, with what looks to be the company’s latest touch-screen system like what is seen on the S-Cross. Suzuki is even showing off a two-tone trim, which we hope makes it to production.
No specifications have been revealed regarding the engine, but the company says it will come powered by a “high-efficiency” unit that “strikes a balance between driving performance and fuel” economy.
All will be revealed at the Mobility Show, running from October 26 to November 5 in Tokyo.
