Suzuki NZ releases high-spec Swift 1

Suzuki Swift1

Suzuki NZ has just released a new plusher version of its popular Swift model. For a limited period, Suzuki New Zealand is offering a specially equipped Swift five door hatchback model as part of the celebrations of 100 years of Suzuki.

Designated Swift1, the new variant adds more luxury and convenience items plus unique alloy wheels and a distinctive grille. Sitting between the entry level Swift XE and the high spec Ltd Swift; the specially equipped Swift1 is priced at $21,800 in manual transmission form and $23,300 with automatic transmission.  These prices include on-road costs.

Swift1 is easily distinguished by a special edition grille with two horizontal chrome bars and eight-spoke 17″ aluminum alloy wheels. Low profile tyres enhance the car’s handling and road holding.

New to this latest version of Suzuki’s best-selling car are turn indicators integrated into the electrically operated door mirrors. A new colour – Maroon Brown – is offered in this special edition model. Swift1 drivers also receive Suzuki’s keyless door entry and engine starting. Alcantarar suede finish upholstery is standard, along with a leather-bound steering wheel with remote steering wheel controls for the Swift’s six-speaker radio/CD and MP3 audio system.

The specification also includes climate air conditioning, front fog lights, anti-lock brakes with EBD and brake assist, and a fuel consumption/outside air temperature display. Dual front, airbags with pretension front seatbelts are part of the car’s safety package.

Last year Swift sales in New Zealand reached record levels, scooping almost one quarter of the light car class. In the process, the car finished ahead of its rivals, and was the third best selling new car.

“It’s entirely appropriate we should launch this up-market Swift which is still the one to buy, according to market demand,” said Tom Peck, General Manager of Marketing for Suzuki New Zealand Ltd. “As one of the most significant cars ever conceived by the company, it is also a fine recognition of Suzuki’s celebration of 100 years since the company was formed.”

“Swift is the first product of Suzuki’s radical innovation programme and the car’s style and substance has given it universal appeal,” said Tom Peck.

“Like the other versions, the new Swift1 captures the essence of Suzuki’s philosophy of providing quality products at outstanding value for money.”With its low emissions and frugal fuel consumption, the Swift is totally in tune with our times.”

The car’s variable valve engine emits a modest CO2 emissions level of 150 grams/km in manual form and averages 6.3 litres/100 km (44.8 miles per gallon) in the combined fuel cycle.
