The worldwide presence of the Suzuki Swift is not limited to sales as it also includes production and outlook. It is manufactured in four countries which are China, Hungary, India, and of course, Japan.
During the development stage however, the designers decided to have Europe as the starting point. By doing this, the design team was able to get inspiration from the surroundings and to understand better how Europeans think.
This was because the goal was to come up with a vehicle that would be able to satisfy the preferences and needs of the European market when it comes to the driving characteristics and the design. This is not the only unique thing about the Swift as it is the result of the brand’s revolutionary innovation program.
This is a program whose ultimate goal is for Suzuki to solidify its spot as the top automaker as well as to be the worldwide leading brand in motorcycles.
Through the Swift, the company is launching new concepts and designs that will hopefully characterize the many Suzuki models that will be released in the coming years. As such, the Swift is a vehicle that greatly appeals to an international market and comes with that sophisticated, athletic, and innovative design.
Using the same themes as those on the Concept S and the Concept S2, the Swift takes a leave from Suzuki’s usual design and shows that the brand is indeed committed to coming up with new and original interpretations even on established market segments. In particular, the design team did not follow the one-box uniformity look.
What they instead did was to come up with a more practical design, one that showed a unique bonnet. Increasing the dynamic appeal and inherent stability of the Swift is the wide-shouldered beltline that goes through the tail lights, flared wheel arches, and the wheels that have been placed far out at each corner.
Making the design even more unique is the way the nose is curved which combines with the mesh grille and the square-shaped openings of is spoiler. In order to reflect the tail lights’ shape, the housing of the headlamp has been stretched all the way to the wings.
The A-pillars and the B-pillars have been colored in black and give off that wraparound glasshouse effect. Its rear bumper has been made larger and when combined with uniquely-shaped tailgate, it gives the lower portion of this vehicle a more solid look. Above the tailgate, the trailing edge of the roof has been moulded to form the spoiler. This improves the aerodynamics of the vehicle. It weighs less by 1 kg compared to the bolt-on-item.
