Many might think that this is just a way for Suzuki to expand their grasp on the lucrative B-segment hatchback, but this particular Swift has some subtle upgrades that may make it more practical to own, and improve its bang for the buck.

    With a keen eye however, one would see it gets an updated set of headlights that gives it fresher look. It also has a tweaked front bumper, wider air intake and satin silver accents on the foglight bezels. The side mirror caps now have integrated turning lights, allowing Suzuki to replace the fender-mounted turn signals with variable valve timing VVT badging.

    Better radio reception however could be improved upon. Meanwhile, the instrument panel is distinctly Suzuki with its easy-to-read tachometer, speedometer, and multi-information display.

Even with an electronically-assisted power steering system, the 1. In most cases, cars that handle great suffer from bad ride quality thanks in part to a stiff suspension setup. The Swift however, still rode well and managed to absorb most road imperfections. It also has a tight turning radius, which allowed the hatchback to weave through the tightest of spots and maneuver through side streets in no time.
