In August last year, Pak Suzuki officially announced to pull the plugs off the 1.3L Swift hatchback that has been around since January 2010. However, the final Good Bye will come into effect in August 2021.
Now as per sources, Pak Suzuki is planning to unveil the new Swift towards the second quarter of this calendar year and will be launched likely towards the end of this year as a replacement of the current Swift once it goes out of production.
The 4th gen Swift made its world debut in Japan back in December 2016 and has received a facelift last year featuring mild cosmetic enhancement with equipment and engine upgrades. However, the one reaching Pakistan will likely be the pre-facelift version.
Official specifications are unknown at this stage however the new Swift in Pakistan is expected to be powered by 1.2 liter engine and will come paired to either 5-speed manual or AGS (Auto Gear Shift) transmission options.
The current Swift was introduced in Pakistan in 2010, the same year when it got retired from the rest of the world and throughout its production run, has remained almost entirely unchanged while being known as the most under-equipped car in Pakistan in this day & age without a single airbag on offer.
Better late than never, we are now about to welcome the current generation model with Pak Suzuki having skipped the 3rd gen Swift altogether. The new Suzuki Swift will be better equipped than the existing model we have here however it is likely to be priced higher than the current model.
