Features of Suzuki Swift
Advertising Dimensions It’s a pocket-sized car and the ergonomics are outstanding. No wonder then, most people who sit in the back end like the car. It’s easy to get in and out of, you can either step on the gas or clutch and the steering wheel is in front of you. It feels very safe as it offers good protection to your seat and legs. It’s a good size car it’s a solid car, no loose parts, good safety gear, excellent packaging, great visibility, and a powerful engine. It’s cost-effective It’s not that expensive and considering you’re getting a lot of bang for your buck it’s good value. Safety The car comes with ABS, Anti-lock brakes, and dual airbags. Yes, you’ll not be stepping on any dual sip but ABS and an airbag are good safety features to have in case of accidents.
Engine and Transmission
Just like a standard Swift, the Swift DX is powered by a 99.6cc, three-cylinder, air-cooled petrol engine, mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. The output of the motor is 7.4PS @7000rpm. This is considered to be more than sufficient for the car’s task of a city car. It also offers a driving range of 70 kilometers in continuous city driving. Fuel Efficiency is rated at 66 km/l in the city. The Swift DX, however, may feel a tad sluggish for some. However, you cannot expect a smooth experience with a city car, even a standard Swift. Performance is very strong in the mid-range at approximately 1000-1260rpm. As you may have read in the article about the Swift GTI vs. Swift GTI 1.3 I-DTEC, this engine has a higher torque peak than the previous generation (1,150Nm).
Space and Safety
Barely needs any disclaimers on the excellent weather, the versatile room (it has a boot which is bigger than all its competitors and therefore does not need a second row), and the space in the rear for two. At the time of writing, the Swift has space for 5 full-size adults. There is ample space to sit 2 children in the rear seats. Also, a five-seat family car with a leather seat package feels complete. Being a light car, it is designed to absorb a collision and it has a good size crumple zone. The IIHS has given Swift a 5-star rating. One thing about Swift’s interior is that the interiors feel dated. It feels that the controls on the dash are similar to any old car. The car should have looked updated and future-ready.
Performance and Performance
The Swift is powered by a Suzuki’s 660cc DFI engine (Direct Injection Turbocharged Engine) and offers an impressive power output of 63PS @ 5500rpm and 92Nm of peak torque @ 4300rpm. The engine is coupled to a five-speed manual transmission and can be shifted smoothly. In addition, the car can be had with optional automatic transmission. The manual gearbox is good but can’t be counted on for sudden starts. The acceleration is rather middling and it isn’t the car’s strong suit. When I finally pushed the car out of the parking lot, it was because the light began to fade and I had to shift into 2nd gear and the car was going nowhere!
That’s it for now. Hopefully, I will write a more detailed post about the Swift in the future so you can buy it right and get the best-used car you can in Pakistan.
