The current-generation Suzuki Swift is now three years old, which now makes it ripe for a minor model change. So far, there hasn't been any mention anything about it, that is until now. Brochure photos of what is said to be the facelifted Swift have surfaced online.
If these images are to be believed, the updates made to the Swift this year appear to be minor. The grill, for instance, now sports a different pattern, replacing the slats seen in the current model. Depending on the variant selected, there's a choice between a diamond pattern or a honeycomb design. Another minor tweak to Swift's cosmetics is the horizontal split that runs across its grill.
Also new for 2020 is the new wheel design for the lower-spec variants, along with more color choices. Orange and yellow have been added to the color selection. As for the rest of the exterior, it appears largely unchanged from headlight to taillight.
Due to the size of the images, it's difficult to tell if there were any updates or upgrades made to the interior. Given how minor the changes Suzuki made to the exterior, we might expect the same treatment on the inside.
The brochure that leaked online is said to be for the Japan-spec Swift, so not all changes might be reflected in other markets. Japan also gets a more powerful version of the 1.2-liter engine seen in the local Swifts. Instead of 82 PS and 113 Nm of torque, the version sold in Japan makes 91 PS and 118 Nm of torque. There's also a mild hybrid model available.
Launch dates are yet to be confirmed and, given the current situation, it's possible that the full details, specifications, and photos of the updated Swift will be done online. Japan is likely the first to get it, with Europe or India possibly being the next to get it. Southeast Asian markets might get it towards the end of the year.
