The upcoming Maruti Suzuki Swift will get a full hybrid as well as a facelift, according to a leaked brochure. We know this via a twitter account @zc83s_RS. The account leaked pictures of the Suzuki Swift Japanese catalog confirming various hybrid models and the facelift update.
The 2020 Suzuki Swift, along with its full hybrid lineup, is yet to be officially announced and will first hit the road in Japan. The hybrid variant of Swift is already available for the Japanese to buy.
In terms of looks, the images suggest the most evident update is the front grille and a bit of tweak in the headlight.
The facelift variant will have a honeycomb grille on the front bumper. The older version of Swift had horizontal grilles. Moreover, the grille design looks much like the Swift Sport. However, the sports model has wider grills compared to the new facelift variant.
Apart from that, there are no noticeable changes on the exterior of the car. Furthermore, as per the sources, the interior of the car will also remain the same.
