To keep the car, the buyer also has to make a final payment at the end of the agreement. Swift Attitude is offered only with a Superior White finish. The three-door has a price of £10,750 while the five-door model costs £11,220.

Suzuki, one of the world’s leading motorcycle brands, introduced the Suzuki Swift, intending it to be a radical innovation program which aims to strengthen the brand’s position as a compact car manufacturer too. Nevertheless, the brand is expected to create more innovations in the coming years. In terms of vision and production, Suzuki is undeniably global. The Swift is built in China, India, Japan, and Hungary.

However, its development is centred on the taste and preference of the European market, especially when it comes to design details and driving characteristics. The design team first focused on establishing a base in Europe to gain insight into the European mindset and at the same time get inspiration from the European environment. The car has also undergone a thorough and comprehensive track and road testing all throughout the continent to make sure that the car’s chassis is refined and well-developed.

The hard work has paid off as the product is a truly innovative car. It has a sporty and elegant design, which makes it appealing to the international market.

Swift’s design is distinct and builds on the styling themes first seen in the Concept-S and Concept-S2 show cars. It shows the company’s commitment to come up with inventive interpretations of established market divisions.

The designers went outside the box and worked with a substantive design that came with a unique bonnet. The dynamic appeal and stability of the car are evident, with its muscular flared wheel arches, wheels that are pushed out to each corner, bold sills, and wide-shouldered beltline.
