Suzuki Motor Corporation has launched the 2020 Swift facelift in Japan at an introductory price of JPY 15,35,600 (around Rs 10.88 Lakhs). The hatch has received cosmetic makeovers with fresh styling and new features in the cabin. For the first time, the company has offered the Swift with a 4X4 drive system in its home market of Japan while the engine options include mild-hybrid and full-hybrid versions. The 2020 Maruti Swift facelift India launch will take place by late 2020 or early 2021 while it will rival the likes of Grand i10 Nios and Ford Figo.
The Japan-spec 2020 Suzuki Swift facelift is presented in two new dual-tone color schemes: Flame Orange Pearl metallic with Black roof and Rush Yellow metallic with Silver roof. As far as styling is concerned, the refreshed iteration of Swift flaunts a new front grille. Identical to the older model, there are a couple of new front grille designs. The bumper designs are also multiple but they are similar to the older model. Likewise, there are a couple of alloy wheel options too with the sportier one finished in dual-tone scheme. Inside the cabin, there is an updated 4.2-inch colored multi-information display (MID) with speed on display as well. The company has added 360-degree around-view monitor as a new feature in the hatchback.

Mechanically, the 2020 (Maruti) Suzuki Swift facelift is available with the same naturally aspirated 1.2L 4-cylinder K12C petrol engine which develops top power of 90bhp and peak torque of 118Nm. The mild-hybrid variant features a WA05A electric motor which assists the engine with power output of 3bhp and torque performance of 50Nm. This petrol-mild hybrid powertrain is available with a 5-speed manual and CVT gearbox. The CVT variants also get a 4WD system. On the other hand, the full-hybrid version gets a more powerful PB05A electric motor which belts out 13.5bhp and 30Nm. Both the motors draw power from a lithium ion battery. This petrol-full hybrid engine setup is linked to a 5-speed AMT unit only with no 4WD system on offer.
