Suzuki unveils new Swift Concept at Tokyo motor show
The concept looks close to be production ready, though powertrains remain unconfirmed
Suzuki has unveiled a new Swift Concept at the Tokyo motor show, previewing the fourth generation of the popular supermini.
The new car features an evolutionary design, with a sleeker silhouette and more aggressive shoulder line.
The rear of the car is also new, with a new design for the rear lights and a roof spoiler.
Inside, the Swift Concept features a completely redesigned dashboard, with the central touchscreen repositioned to the top of the dash.
The climate control buttons are now located underneath the touchscreen, and there is even a CD player below. The steering wheel and gear selector appear to be unchanged from the current model.
Suzuki is expected to offer the new Swift with a mild-hybrid powertrain only, using the same HEARTECT platform as the current car. The rear image of the Swift Concept also features a ‘HYBRID’ badge.
In addition to the Swift Concept, Suzuki is also showcasing a number of other new vehicles at the Tokyo Motor Show, including the eVX - its first first pure-electric car.
