The brilliant and environmentally friendly hybrid
SWIFT HYBRID mounts the new 1.2 engine signed K12D that saw the debut this year with IGNIS HYBRID and that is euro 6D approved. This unit four-cylinder gasoline is characterized by a short run, with ready-made answers and agile them at the accelerator control. Its maximum power is 83 hp while . The maximum torque is 107 Nm. This peak is recorded at only 2,800 laps, a 1,600 rpm lower than the previous K12C engine. On the road this results in an extraordinary elasticity in driving, also thanks to the support provided by the Suzuki HYBRID system. Here Suzuki is further improving the already-appreciated ISG-based system (Integrated Starter Generator). It is a device that performs the functions of alternator, starter and electric motor, to provide a torque whenever there is a need for more cue from low-regimes, such as starting and overtaking. Compared to the system previously adopted, the new SWIFT HYBRID has now a 10Ah battery (greater than previous 3Ah). Although the unit is unchanged from the past, the unit is able to provide more support thanks to the increased capacity. This translates into lower load for the thermal engine and therefore lower fuel consumption emissions.
The benefits do not stop, of course, just at consumption. New SWIFT HYBRID Accesses all regional and local tax benefits for hybrid cars, such as exemption from stamp duty for 5 years in many regions or by the obligation to toll for parking in the blue zone in some cities. Of course, it also accesses the new state incentives, thanks to the very small CO2 emissions.
Thanks to the HEARTECT frame and one of the smallest mass in the category, SWIFT has always had extraordinary efficiency. The New SWIFT HYBRID takes these skills to the extreme by positioning themselves as the most thrifty car in the Suzuki range. With the switch to the K12D engine, fuel consumption and emissions
6% and 5% respectively. In detail, the CO2 emitted by the 2WD versions drops from 94 to 88 g/km and the combined consumption goes from 4.1 to 3.9 l/100 km, according to the NEDC standard. For 4×4 cars with traction 4x4AllGrip CO2 emitted reduces from 101 to 95 g/km and consumption decreases from 4.4 to 4.2 l/100 km, also in the NEDC cycle. To have a measure of the progress made, compared to the previous gasoline version, the New SWIFT HYBRID was able to reduce consumption by 15% on the cycle 26% in the urban cycle, where more than you appreciate the contribution of the Suzuki hybrid system.
More than ever “all standard, no surprises”
True to a business strategy that focuses on a clear and transparent price list, Suzuki offers New SWIFT HYBRID in two trim levels, COOL and TOP. The names of the versions are the same as they have been used in the past, but their equipment is now much richer. In particular, autonomous driving Level 2 is now standard across the range.
From the start of the COOL set-up, the customer will have all the security of the systems “careful brake” (automatic emergency braking with pedestrian recognition), “straight guide” (lane crossing warning, now also equipped with maintenance “remains” (monitoring of attention and attention driver’s weariness), “unlimited eye” (recognition of road signs), “shoulderguards” (monitoring blind spots), “vaipure (monitoring blind angles in reverse). Adaptive cruise control and “non-dazzle” system (dazzling-dazzling automatic switch with recognition of the other cars). All of these systems operate through the combined operation of a monocular camera, radar and a laser sensor. In addition, full LED headlights and parking sensors are introduced as standard rear over the entire range.
Confirmed the presence of all the content swift customers have learned from time to know: infotainment system with touchscreen screen 7″, Bluetooth® and full smarphone integration (Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto®, MirrorLink®), rear camera, heated seats, rear glass and rear window darkened, leather steering wheel, air conditioning, 16-inch alloy wheels. The TOP set-up also offers: automatic air conditioning, keyless system, electrically folding rear-view mirrors, navigator card with 3D maps, rear electric cranks.
The main standard features of the new SWIFT HYBRID range are
so the following.
- Full LED headlights with automatic light sensor and dazzling
- Semi-autonomous driving systems
- Adaptive Cruise Control with speed limiter
- 16-inch alloy hoops”
- Darkened window and rear windows
- Heatable seats
- Touch screen 7th”, Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto ®, Bluetooth®
- Rear camera with distance meter
- Manual climate control
TOP trim (in addition to the COOL version)
- Automatic climate change
- Navigator with 3D maps
- Keyless system
- Rear-view mirrors with built-in direction indicators, electrically foldable
- Rear electric cranks
- 16- BiColor alloy wheels
- Grip Control (4WD versions)
- Paddle gearbox at the wheel (automatic versions)
As a tradition of the House of Hamamatsu, SWIFT HYBRID therefore offers a endowment at the top of its reference segment, with content that competitors do not offer or offer exclusively for a fee. It’s about a compact with top-level standard car equipment.
A solution for everyone
The New SWIFT HYBRID range is able to meet the needs of a wide and cross-sectional audiences. On the TOP set-up, at hybrid motorization 1.2 front-wheel drive and manual gearbox are joined by the 4×4 AllGrip versions CVT.
The first continues in SWIFT’s tradition of offering an extremely effective and efficient 4×4 AllGrip traction, the brand’s trademark Suzuki. The new SWIFT HYBRID offers the Auto variant of its AllGrip, a viscous joint transmission can automatically transfer the pair rear axle when a loss of grip is detected front axle. The system is also equipped with Grip Control technology acting with the braking system on the individual wheels when they lose grip, is able to always maintain drive on those in the grip. So an intelligent and effective system that has minimal impact on consumption but always ensures maximum security.
The automatic version with CVT gearbox is a novelty for Swift. What already happened for Ignis in segment A, for the first time the ability for customers in segment B to be able to choose between a manual gearbox and an automatic gearbox, without giving up all the advantages of the system hybrid. The CVT system is equipped with a series of gearboxes behind the wheel, in order to be able to control 7 ratios of the automatic gearbox directly. Alternatively, the customer can let the transmission work in fully automatic mode, taking advantage of the fluidity of the new CVT system.
More grit and color
The new SWIFT HYBRID is renewed not only in the equipment but alsoaesthetics. The exteriors have been revised with a new, deeper front grille, for give it a more three-dimensional, dynamic and sporty look. The characteristic lath chrome now has a more pronounced profile, fully embedded in the grid to stand out more in contrast to the black of the same. The full LED headlights that, as mentioned, they are now standard across the range, they highlight even more this renovation, with LED daytime lights giving the front a look extremely modern.
The rims have also been the subject of a renewal, oriented both to aesthetics, with a more sporty line, than functionality, with a reduction in the masses not suspended, to the benefit of driving pleasure, agility and consumption. Standard on the whole range with 16″ diameter, in BiColor variant on TOP.
Inside, the inserts on the door and dashboard of the TOP set-up have been renewed, now featuring a new silver finish.
