The new Suzuki Swift is all set to be launched in Thailand early next year. The fourth-generation Swift made debut in December 2016 in its home market whereas the Swift Sport hot hatch floated up a couple of months ago.Thailand will simply get a 1.2 liter naturally-aspirated four-cylinder Dualjet engine, whereas the 1.0 liter turbocharged three-cylinder Boosterjet unit will not be accessible there.
This is off target because of cost, because the Swift is considered an Eco Car in Thailand’s entry level market. The Swift’s K12C generates the similar 91 hp/118 Nm as that of the K12B unit in the outgoing Thai Swift. However it should be more fuel efficient and green to come up with Eco Car Phase 2 standards of 23.3 km/l and 100 g/km of CO2 emissions. The new Heartect platform, which is stiffer and less heavy, would assist the Swift’s weight reduction from 30 to 160 kg.
It has been a year as the 4th generation Swift made its first appearance and has by now reached many markets worldwide. In 2018 the new Swift will get to the Asian and Indian markets but there are no hopes for us to dispose of the 2nd generation yet.
Pak Suzuki’s 2nd generation Swift that was blessed at us in 2010 was by now replaced by the 3rd generation Swift the time it was launched in Pakistan. The Swift at present sits at the bottom of domestic sales chart with just roughly 350 units a month since couple of years. Yet the newly launched Honda BR-V which isn’t well thought-out as a mainstream seller sells twice as much as the Suzuki Swift here.
It will be fascinating to speculate when Pak Suzuki comprehend to introduce a newer generation Swift in Pakistan, particularly when some tough competition is expected to turn up in coming years.
