Leaked – 2017 Suzuki Swift comes out with brochure image

Brochure leaks are an integral part of the teasing campaign these days, so we’re not overly surprised the 2017 Suzuki Swift has been “leaked” over to the Internet.

According to a Japanese-market catalogue, the town dweller has a nicer design than ever before – as well as a new hybrid option. We’re talking about an all-new generation, so we’re actually not surprised the architecture includes an option for a hybridized powertrain. The new Swift is a member of the township society, so the trends are easily observable – big, swept back headlights and a large, hexagonal grille. The lower element of the bumper seems ready to host a splitter on sporty variants. With blacked out pillars the Swift wears a floating roof while the rear has a crease stretched across the tailgate, a detail mirroring the closely-related Suzuki Baleno.

We can see the Swift remaining one of the friendliest “superminis” on the market – and there’s apparently a confirmation that its three-door version has been axed, according to market trends. While the information is in Japanese, we can still make out there’s a hybrid version, equipped with a naturally-aspirated, 1.2-liter, four-cylinder Dualjet motor linked to an electric motor. In addition, most versions can be hooked to all wheel drive, except for the sporty RS. The RSt packs a 1.0-liter, three-cylinder, turbocharged Boosterjet engine, delivering around 112 horsepower (82 kilowatts), linked to a six-speed automatic transmission.
