Suzuki add GLX spec to Swift range

Suzuki South Africa has added a new GLX specification level to its Swift range.

The new GLX specification level will now slot in between the GL and Sport guises. On the exterior, the GLX variant, similar to the premium Sport derivative, comes with colour-coded mirrors, door handles and parking sensors and sees the addition of new 15-inch alloy wheels. The front grille, A, B and C-pillars still receive the blacked-out finish again similar to that of the Sport range while the rear of the vehicle features LED rear tail lamps and a high-mounted LED stop lamp.

Most of the benefits of the GLX specification are found in the interior, as standard, niceties such as automatic climate control and a 7.0-inch full-colour touch screen infotainment system featuring voice command, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth and USB connectivity are included. The infotainment display also doubles as a screen on which the image from the integrated reverse camera is displayed. The driver of the Suzuki will also find a leather-clad steering wheel and height-adjustable seat, while the rear seats come with ISOFIX mounting points as with the other variants.

While the Swift Sport features the latest 1.4-litre Boosterjet engine, the Swift GLX models are powered by the new-generation normally aspirated 1.2-litre petrol engine. Coupled to either the five-speed manual or automatic transmissions, the powertrain will produce 61 kW and develop 113 N.m of torque.


The Suzuki Swift 1.2-litre GLX are sold with a 2-year / 30 000 km service plan and 5-year / 200 000 km promotional mechanical warranty.
