 Suzuki Swift SZ-L special edition launched in UK

Suzuki is introducing in UK the Swift SZ-L special edition which will be limited to 500 units.


Japanese marque Suzuki is trying to spice up the UK-spec Swift facelift with a special edition SZ-L based on the mid-range SZ3 but with a few extra goodies. Available starting March 1st, the model comes equipped as standard with air conditioning, seven airbags, ESP, Bluetooth, as well as the LED daytime running lights and cruise control borrowed from the SZ4 variant.

The model is offered with a two-tone metallic paint job available in either Boost Blue or Cosmic Black with contrasting Cool White roof, door mirrors and rear spoiler. The cabin features silver stitching on the gear gaiter, steering wheel and also on the seats which now have a bespoke fabric design.

In the United Kingdom two engines are available. 1.2-liter petrol that produces 94 HP (69 kW) and 118 Nm (87 lb-ft) of torque. It should enable the five-door hatchback to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 12.3 seconds (13.5 seconds with the four-speed automatic) and hit a top speed of up to 165 km/h (102 mph).

The listing also suggests there will be a 1.3-liter diesel that churns out 75 HP (55 kW) and 190 Nm (140 lb-ft) of torque. This should enable the Swift to run from 0-100 km/h in 12.7 seconds, before topping out at 165 km/h (102 mph).

The Suzuki Swift SZ-L Special edition will be offered as a three-door model from 10,899 GBP and also a five-door priced from 11,316 GBP.
