The Swift wears a new face with a mesh-type front grille highlighted by a horizontal chrome stripe. The ZXi+ trims can be had with a two-tone exterior. Besides these changes, the Swift remains the same with projector headlights, LED DRLs, raised rear door handles, and 15-inch precision cut alloy wheels.
