Hardly a week after making its debut at the 2023 Japan Mobility Show (formerly Tokyo Auto Show), the all-new Suzuki Swift has been spotted testing on Indian roads, indicating that India will be one of the first markets to welcome the latest model.
According to reports, a heavily camouflaged test mule of the all-new Swift was spotted in the streets of Goa. As seen with the debut model, the all-new Swift gets a set of new projector headlamps with integrated L-shaped LED DRLs, new front and rear bumpers, new grille, fog lights, wide air dam, conventional antenna, and an integrated spoiler with a high-mounted stop lamp.

The most notable feature that confirms the test mule to be the all-new Suzuki Swift is the rear door handle which has been repositioned to the door from its earlier placement on the C-pillar.

Inside, the 2024 Suzuki Swift will get a new dual-tone themed interior, a new 9-inch freestanding touchscreen infotainment system, touch-based controls for the AC functions, redesigned AC vents, and automatic climate control. Some spy pictures also reveal an illuminated marking on the side mirror indicating that the new Swift will most likely be equipped with a blind spot monitor.
The recently unveiled Japanese-spec Swift will be powered by a new Z12E 1.2-liter petrol engine. It will be paired with a CVT gearbox and will also be offered with an AWD configuration. However, we will have to wait for more information related to the exact specifications of the Indian-spec model which is likely to be formally launched in India during the first half of 2024.
