New Suzuki Swift 2011 has grown slightly in length (+90mm) having a 50mm rise in wheelbase. For that powertrain; a brand new 1.2-litre petrol engine incorporating Dual VVT (Variable intake and exhaust valve timing) is utilised which produces 94PS at 6,000rpm, a little more than the outgoing 1.3-litre unit. Torque is also improved to 118Nm at 4,800rpm.
New Suzuki Swift 2011 1.2-litre engine with manual transmission produces just 116g/km on the combined cycle; representing a 24g/km or 17 per cent improvement within the 1.3. An optional automatic transmission is going to be readily available for the petrol engine from launch. Single.3-litre diesel engine will even become available and planned for UK introduction in early 2011; this engine emits 109g/km (down from 119g/km) and it has an impressive combined fuel consumption of 67.3mpg, an improvement on an already highly credible 62.8mpg in the outgoing Swift DDiS.
The same five-speed manual transmission is used in both petrol and diesel-powered models, with suitably revised gear ratios for the diesel. It gives satisfyingly firm and quick gear shifting because of an enhanced linkage arrangement. Unusually for the Suzuki Swift’s segment, the four-speed automatic available a typical about the five door 1.5-litre SZ4 includes a gated shift lever design.
New Suzuki Swift 2011 was the first product of Suzuki’s radical innovation programme to bolster its position as both a leading compact car manufacturer and one of the world’s foremost motorcycle brands. It introduced new ideas and design convinced that will define a lot more new Suzuki models in a long time to come.
New Suzuki Swift 2011 is global in outlook and production – it is built in Japan, Hungary, China and India – but its development continues to be focused firmly on the demands and tastes from the European market when it comes to design and driving characteristics. Indeed, the design team’s initial step ended up being to establish a base in Europe, where it was able to obtain a valuable insight into the ecu mindset and draw inspiration from the European environment. And much of the chassis development and refinement took it’s origin from real-world intelligence gained through extensive road and track testing over the continent. It makes sense a cutting-edge, sporty and stylish design with genuine international appeal. As a new departure in Suzuki design, Swift develops styling themes first seen in the Concept-S and Concept-S2 show cars, and demonstrates the company’s need to develop original interpretations of established areas.
The stylists deliberately shunned the trend towards ‘one-box’ uniformity, instead creating a substantive design having a distinct bonnet. Muscular, flared wheel arches, bold sills, wheels pushed to each corner, along with a broad-shouldered beltline that continues all the way to the tail lights express the car’s inherent stability and dynamic appeal.
