Strong inheritance from the successive generations of the Swift can be found at the wrap-around windows design.
C-pillar integrated rear door handles
Pillar-mounted rear door handles add both style and a sporty flair.
Lightness and strength for enhanced fundamental performance
The "HEARTECT" next-generation platform features a high-rigidity frame that contributes to crash safety, and the frame's continuous and smoothly curving shape with fewer joints effectively disperses impact energy in the case of a collision. The lighter platform, made so by a reduction in the number of required reinforcements, and the abundant use of light, high-tensile steel combine to enhance both fundamental vehicle performance in terms of running, turning and stopping and fuel consumption performance.
1.2 Petrol engine
The 1.2-litre petrol engine offers the best of two worlds - high output and good fuel economy. Despite the engine's small displacement, its heightened compression ratio results in better thermal efficiency for powerful driving. Knocking, which can result from high compression, is suppressed by the engine's augmented cooling performance. For good fuel economy without sacrificing output and torque, fuel combustion has been enhanced, friction has been reduced and efforts have been made to make the engine light and compact.
LED position lamps
The LED position lamps, with its thick inner lens, emits an even line of light and conveys a high-tech impression.
Light and highly rigid body for nimble and agile driving and good fuel economy
Extensive use of high-tensile steel and ultra-high-tensile steel, such as in the upper body and underbody, achieves both lightness and high rigidity for enhanced driving performance and excellent fuel performance.
Cabin and luggage space that expands the way you have fun
The new Swift's generous luggage space allows you to take more, and the split, fold-down rear seatbacks help you fit what you need. Ample head clearance is provided by low seating positions, and numerous easy-to-use storage spaces are a short reach away.
Easy-to-see and stylish cluster
The satin chrome accenting the blacked-toned interior, also adorns the two main, minutely scaled gauges, laid out in stylish fashion and featuring red and white highlights. Underlining the easy-to-use, sporty design, whitin the main gauges are displayed water temperature and fuel level*, giving the overall design the air of chronograph watches.

Bluetooth-compatible audio system for wireless connectivity
The audio system, equipped with an AM/FM radio and CD player, uses a high-contrast LCD panel for easy recognition. Connectivity comes in the form of either a wired USB connection or through Bluetooth*, with the later enabling hands-free mobile phone use and wireless enjoyment of music stored onMP3/WMA-compatible portable audio devices.

Air conditioner with easy-to-read display and easy-to-use controls
The air conditioner control panel allows intuitive operation. Easy recognition has also been made possible through the use of a high-contrast LCD on the GLX grade. The GA and GL grades are equipped with a manual air conditioner with simple controls for operational convenience.
