Suzuki introduces Swift facelift in Japan with regenerative breaking

Following the European launch of the Swift facelift, Suzuki has introduced the updated model in Japan with even more features that include regenerative breaking and idle stop (start/stop) mechanism. The update version continues to be powered by the 1.2-litre K Series engine, but now has claimed efficiency of 26.4kpl, thanks to the energy efficient features.

While the European spec facelift was confined to DRLs, new body colours and minor cosmetic changes, the new Swift in Japan is more feature-loaded. All variants will get ESP as standard and an illuminated graphic console to measure the level of efficiency attained while driving. The facia gets a minor refresh with a new honeycomb grille and an aggressive front bumper. The DRLs from the European model has also been inherited. The RS variant now gets a special edition with a more sporty body kit.

The transmission options include a 5-speed manual box and a CVT that power either the front-wheels or all-wheels depending upon variants. The car will be priced in Japan between 1,279,950 Yen (Rs 7.54 lakh) and 1,787,100 Yen (Rs 10.54 lakh).

Regenerative breaking and idle stop mechanism will both be extremely useful features if implemented to the Swift facelift in India. But our obsession towards value for money propositions will most likely curb Maruti Suzuki from introducing these on the Indian version. That will mean that we will have to be content with the day time running lamps and the new front grille, when the company choses to introduce the new model.
