And gives an interesting glimpse of new ideas and design approaches that will shape Suzuki models in years to come. As part of the global strategy of Suzuki, the Swift will be manufactured in Hungary, Japan, China and India.
Radical innovation: The story behind the new Suzuki Swift
Suzuki recently started a new program of radical innovation: a mission which aims to reaffirm and strengthen our position as an innovator Suzuki'fs compact-car; mission destined to produce the vehicle to realize the unique DNA of a company that not only the world leader in compact car but also the dominant force in the world of motorcycles.
automotive public'fs first glance the new way forward Suzuki'fs come at the Paris Motor Show 2002, in which Suzuki launched the Concept-S, a, fresh-inspired rally car concept that reflects the influence of two-and four-wheel Suzuki'fs and activities combines the benefits of racing Suzuki'fs descent with advanced technology features.
Next comes the new Suzuki'fs program is S2-concept, an open sports car that Suzuki developed the best in new-model concept into shape with a more relaxed personality. Unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2003, Concept-S2 is a dimension similar to the production of new generation vehicles in the direction that Suzuki continues to work - a vehicle that will be known as the new Suzuki Swift.
Plans for the new Swift is formed around the same mindset entirely new: Whereas Japanese car development often focuses first on the needs of Japanese motorists, the designers and engineers assigned to the new Suzuki Swift focus first and foremost in Europe, the new Swift will be a Japanese car developed in Europe for today'fs global market.
designers first step is to set up base in Europe, where they assess the return Suzuki'fs concept car design and joined hands with European designers, who provide valuable insight European mindset. They lived in Europe for six months, continue to refine the design of the new Swift when they got inspiration from the landscape and the people of Europe. The result is an innovative design, sporty, and elegant with a genuine international appeal.
New Swift'fs Handling, too, reflects a clear European focus. The engineers developed a completely new chassis and perfected through the test track and road-testing programs throughout Europe. At each step, they incorporated feedback from European car enthusiasts. The result is handling that meet the most exacting European motorists.
A head-turning fusion of the dynamics and stability
Suzuki'fs exciting new direction in car design that directly visible in the external styling of the new Swift. Unlike many vehicles styling monoform adopted in the supermini category, the new Swift has a 1.5-box style that communicates a clear sense of dynamism and substantiality; has consistently earned praise among European motorists who works with design programs.
Front face distinctive headlamps combine sporty clear and wide airdam that are not only pressing the front-end lift but also looks dynamic and stylish. And attitudes that convey a strong sense of stability created by the large-diameter wheels positioned near the extreme corners of the body and by a bold contoured shoulder lines that run from front to rear lamp body.
A greenhouse gives the upper half of the cover body Swift'fs new look, bold sporty cabin and helped inspire the emergence of robustness. Cover design of the greenhouse is equipped with a black finish on B-and A-pillar for the display, even more integrated smarter.
On the new Swift, it is clear that the shoulder line is equipped with lights bold wheel arches and side sills that further emphasize the strength and stability car'fs. Shoulder line flows into the rear combination lamps that curve forward to meet them at the rear wheels, creating a unique look solid, sporty, and well integrated.
And in the back of a very, very substantial-looking, expressive style truck with a bumper meet, big wide rear that forms a strong visual base for the bottom of the body. At the top of the truck, the trailing edge roof'fs formed as a spoiler - a design not only looks sporty and improve aerodynamic performance but also realize valuable 1kg weight saving over conventional plastic bolt-on spoiler.
Overall effect, which can be further enhanced by the optional 15-inch, five-spoke aluminum wheels, is to see stability and a sense that the new Swift is packed with energy and ready to deliver a dynamic drive.
The cockpit is designed for genuine driving pleasure
Inside the new Swift, the driver enjoys an environment that reflects the focus on style, sportiness and driving pleasure. View the cover of the glass surface was continued in the cabin design, creating not only look chic, but also feelings of involvement with the car and trust in it. Sporty features including a three-spoke steering wheel, a shift key ball, and the illuminated ring around the speedometer to make driving more fun.
The top of the instrument panel is positioned optimally low to give the driver a clear view forward. This means the driver enjoys a sense of openness and discover new Swift easy to place accurately on the road. Overall result is confident, driving fun with a satisfying feeling of involvement.
Instrumentation that promotes easy, enjoyable driving includes, sporty easy to read triple-gauge instrument cluster where the tachometer, in a reflection of sportbike design, has marked the company was six o'fclock e0'f, where the eye falls naturally. This also includes centrally located information display that shows time, fuel consumption and outside temperature.
Audio and climate-control systems easy to operate thanks to optimally large, dial-type controls. For added convenience, an audio system can also be operated using the optional steering-wheel-mounted controls.
Front seats offer superior support and continued, and each has a variety of slide fore-back of the class-leading 240mm. Plus, the seat height adjuster driver'fs has a range of up-down 30mm. A tilt-adjustable steering column further to accommodate every rider. Even a relatively small person can easily find the optimal sitting position for confident driving and easy operation of the pedals.
And in all regions driver'fs, gaps and differences in elevation between trim pieces tight and accurate, contributing to a sense of overall improvement and quality.
Efficient, enjoyable performance for every driving situation
For efficient, enjoyable performance that meets every need driver'fs, the new Swift comes with three engine options in a comprehensive enhanced (1.3-liter gasoline engine M13A, M15A petrol engine 1.5-liter and 1.3 liter diesel engine DDiS) and with transmission choices (five-speed manual, manual five-speed automatic transmission and four-speed automatic).
Each machine is set with an emphasis on performance at low speed and mid-range (important in urban driving situations and on winding country road) and incorporating various advanced technologies.
key technology of the gasoline engine includes variable valve timing (used with 1.5-liter gasoline engine), which helps to maximize torque and power throughout the range of rotation. 1.3-liter diesel engine has a common-rail injection system of fuel for superior performance, emissions control and fuel efficiency. This breathing through intercooled turbocharger, which helped to create the curve, a strong flat torque with smooth response even at low engine speeds.
Transmission Suzuki'fs also reflect a focus on driving pleasure. The main features are as follows:
Five-speed manual transmission (used with gasoline engines and DDiS) has a short-stroke design was updated with comprehensively enhanced shift linkages that give the company, quick shift feel.
And Manual five-speed automatic transmission (use with 1.3-liter gasoline engine) offers both automatic and manual benefits shift for easy shifting, fuel-efficient driving. Its automatic mode the driver has two settings that can be selected: Economy mode, which emphasizes fuel economy, and the normal mode, which emphasizes drivability. Automatic four-speed transmission (used with 1.5-liter gasoline engine) has a gated shift lever that allows the driver to shift gear to enjoy the added excitement. This feature is common among sports saloons and coupes but rarely seen in the supermini category.
Understood the new system to increase the next generation and handling
With the new Swift, chassis engineers Suzuki'fs targeted dynamic driving experience together with a trip that feels sophisticated and comfortable. They achieve this balance is difficult to integrate the body with a new platform developed specifically for chassis system combines understood.
The new platform was developed to provide new Swift with the tread width (front: 1470mm, rear: 1480mm), large overall width (1690 mm), and a long wheelbase (2380 mm). These dimensions not only benefit interior spaciousness, but also helps to activate the superior on-road stability and comfort.
Front suspension has a new design where the lower arm, steering gearbox, engine mounting and attached to the rear suspension subframe. This design provides increased stiffness significantly higher, which translates into lower road noise and feel stronger than stability.
That new Swift breaks new ground with further equipped with a torsion-beam rear suspension, which gives a superior combination of handling stability and ride comfort. One specific benefit of the new arrangements unsprung weight low, allowing the camber angle and toe-in which will be effectively controlled for accurate and predictable handling. Another plus is the space-efficient layout that allows, low-floor flat luggage-area.
To further enhance the driving experience, the system-assisted power steering has a newly developed steering gearbox that gives a more direct feel. And to further controllability, improved braking system has a design in which increased caliper stiffness and other enhancements sure to stop providing power.
Class-leading protection from collision and theft
Peace of mind for users has always been a Suzuki main priority, so that the new Swift combines the latest technology for safety and security. Develop a body from scratch allows engineering teams to achieve extraordinary structure crashworthy; one in which high-tensile steel and tailored blank is used extensively to ensure a light and strength. It also allows the team to adopt a structure (particularly in the caps, fenders, wipers, and front bumper) that helps protect pedestrians in case of contact.
In the cabin, the user is more shielded from impact forces by a collapsible steering column, brake foot-injury-mitigation and clutch pedals, front seatbelt pretensioners and force limiters, energy-absorbing trim, front airbags, and side and curtain airbags are available.
To help ensure that no-advanced passive safety technology ever needed, the new Swift combining various active safety technologies include four-wheel anti-lock braking systems, brake-force distribution system electronics, and brake-assist function, which together help the driver avoid hazards .
And to give users even greater peace of mind, protection from theft model is realized by the system started without a key (without key unlocking this permission, engine startup, and locking), immobilizer, and locked the door last Suzuki'fs tamper-resistant.
Cleverly arranged space for daily convenience
Despite the new Swift has a dimension that makes it easy to manage on the road, use an intelligent interior space realizes exceptional people-and luggage-carrying flexibility.
With all seats in use, luggage area has a low capacity 213L (VDA). Luggage area is tall enough to allow a large suitcase to be loaded vertically. Plus, luggage-area floor is smooth and flat thanks to the torsion-beam rear suspension is a new adoption.
In a higher value, the rear seats have a 40/60-split design and tumble-folding function so it can be configured to create a surface, extended flat trunk on each side. a lower value has a rear bench-type seats with a single-folding seatback can also be used to create more trunk space. The tailgate can be opened electrically by pressing a button, making loading easier when user'fs hands full with suitcases.
For further convenience, storage space for small, personal items around the cabin. They include compartment in the instrument panel, glove box, front and rear bottle holders, seatback pocket, front door pockets (large enough for A4-size road atlases), and a tray under the front passenger seat.
