Suzuki Australia has announced the launch of its popular Swift hatchback.

Four variants are available: GL Navigator in manual or automatic transmissions and GL Navigator Plus and the top of the range GLX Turbo in automatic only.

Advanced safety technologies have been introduced.

Rear cross traffic alert is one of the most important of all safety features to our way of thinking. It uses two rear mounted side radar sensors to alert the driver of approaching vehicles on either side of the vehicle when reversing out of carpark spaces.

Blind spot monitoring detects vehicles in or approaching the rear blind spots on either side of the vehicle by illuminating a warning LED icon in the relevant exterior mirror.

These key advanced safety features are now standard across the GL Navigator Plus and GLX Turbo variants.

Other new standard features across all grades include a digital speedometer and auto-up windows.

Rear speakers, already standard in the GLX Turbo, have been added to the GL Navigator variants.

Exterior design changes include revised front bumper and grille and new alloy wheels.

The new Swift Series II will come standard with a comprehensive five year unlimited kilometre factory warranty.

Suzuki’s Capped Price Service Program (with 12 month / 10,000km service intervals) applies to the new Swift Series II ensuring cost effective motoring and peace of mind.

GL Navigator: $18,990 (manual), $19,990 (automatic)
GL Navigator Plus: $21,490 (automatic)
GLX Turbo: $25,290 (automatic)
Note: These are driveaway prices.
