Look closely, even the front also looks a bit of evolution!
The headlamps are a little peeled back with similar light and indicator arrangement! I expect a different grill and a modified bumper. Also, the car is looking a bit wider and butch!

Suzuki going the Korean way of doing things!?

The back has taken a lot of inspiration from the Megane.

New Swift seems to be more wider and the Megane like boot design should help in increasing the boot space.

Would have loved a deeper tail-gate opening,though the new rear end design,especially the integration of the tail-gate with the number plate housing area, has been superbly executed!

I totally agree man, the hatch door and the bumper design execution is perfect. I totally like the new design . Waiting for other views

This is one beauty that will just blow the competition away. I can't wait to see this being launched in India. The new Swift is definitely wider than the current one. The door panels seems similar to the current one but I believe this is an all new platform since the car is wider. It also looks to be a wee bit longer but that extra length is being beautifully camoflauged by the rear hatch design.

The rear lights look much sharper than the dull ones currently. IMHO, the rear bumper/boot lid combination does not look good.

MODS: There a already a thread on this subject and can be merged if you think it is appropriate

Another one of those bizarre facelifts that are being carried out by Suzuki in recent times. I am so happy my father has a previous gen swift.

Btw, are these pictures in INDIA. When is Suzuki going to launch this version?

edit: looks like suzuki's got there direction all messed up. looks as if the car got a smiley face. But that smiley face is on the cars back side.

Nice scoop. Cosmetics only? Rear tail lamps, quarter glass has changed, the boot lip is different, number plate moved up from the bumper. Not sure i like how the new rear looks. Maybe it looks better in flesh.

And why only this color on all cars! They want to redo a Bunty-Bubli launch.

When do we expect to see this beauty on indian shores. I think maruti is in no real hurry as the current model is a segment leader & commands a long waiting period. Maruti will not try to sell the two along each other. They must definitly try to get it soon enough as the latest crop of hatches are going great guns & we are yet to see the likes of toyota & honda hatches (smaller than Jazz).
