Zapping Auto Moto Restyled Peugeot 2008 vs Renault Captur: first static confrontation!
At the last Tokyo Motor Show, Suzuki presented a concept announcing the future Swift. Very but then very, very close to the series, we wondered what the Japanese brand was going to change on the production model. The answer is… nothing. It’s that simple. To find out, you have to go to a page from the Japanese site on which the new version appeared recently in the simplest device. Let’s look at this more closely.
It takes up everything from the concept
When we say that nothing changes between the concept and the production version, we are not exaggerating. The model appearing in the illustration in our article includes almost everything, with one exception, the two-tone roof. However, by browsing the page in its entirety, you can discover the color chart of this new version and the blue-black combination will be well proposed. In total, Japanese customers (and we imagine that it will be the same for us) will have the choice between 9 solid colors and 4 two-tone options (red, black, anise green and white with, in all cases, a black roof). In the passenger compartment, no more changes, it is identical to the configuration seen on the showcar.
Information still fragmentary about him
But then, what do we really learn about this Swift? Already, its dimensions, we now know that it will be barely more bulky than the one it replaces. It measures a small centimeter longer (3.86 m), while the height is stationary (1.50 m). This information combined with the fact that the wheelbase does not move an inch (2.45 m) reinforces the idea that this Swift is not a completely new model strictly speaking but a big evolution of the previous model, image of the latest S-Cross.
However, there will be something new under the hood. If micro-hybridization is back, the Swift will swap its 4-cylinder for a 3-cylinder of the same displacement (1.2). Power is not specified. Suzuki says it has revised the CVT transmission to make it quieter, lighter and more energy efficient. Note that in the Land of the Rising Sun, it is still offered with a 100% thermal engine, without the slightest trace of hybridization. This should not be the case with us. We will have confirmation of this in the coming weeks or, more likely, in the coming months. To be continued.
