With a slightly lighter build than the Baleno, the next-gen Swift will also be positioned below the Baleno in the international markets, though they will take some common components between them including the engines. It is still unclear if the Suzuki will infuse the hybrid technology into the next-gen Swift, as the Japanese carmaker remained zipped on the same.

Going with the trend, the international Suzuki Swift will sport a hexagonal grille and enlarged front spoilers. There will also be the floating roof, usually associated with the Swift. The headlamps get projector lamps and daytime running lights.

Inside the cabin, the equipment list will be quite long, while most of the design cues of the current generation Swift will be maintained, despite the changes. While the Swift is more close to the heart, the Baleno is more practical for the international markets, believes Suzuki. A 3-door niche segment can also be expected on the next-gen Swift.

The India-spec Swift will continue to be made available with the 1.2-litre petrol K-series and the 1.3-ltre diesel engines. The turbo-charged, 1.0-litre, Boosterjet engine will also continue to be available. The Indian Swift will also bring along with itself the Swift “DZire” too.
