    Suzuki PH to release 1.2-liter Swift in 2014, source says
    Suzuki Philippines will release a 1.2-liter engine variant of its Swift hatchback in 2014 according to a very reliable source.

    Currently the Japanese automaker offers the Swift hatchback with a 1.4-liter VVT engine for the Philippine market, mated to either a 5-speed manual transmission or a 4-speed automatic.

    Other Asian markets offering the Swift with a 1.2-liter engine are Thailand and India; Thailand produces the Swift through the Thai governmentís eco-car program which gives favorable incentives to vehicles with low displacement meeting certain requirements. The Thai version gets either a CVT or 5-speed manual.

    Earlier this year, Suzuki released a sedan version of the Swift; the Maruti-Suzuki India developed Swift Dzire. The notchback version is fitted with the same KB12 1.2-liter VVT engine mated to a 5-speed manual with minimal features and is sold as Suzukiís entry level sedan.

    The 1.2-liter Suzuki Swift will reportedly be priced at PhP650,000, according to our source.

    3D Car Shows NEW SUZUKI SWIFT 1.2
    SUZUKI SWIFT 1.2 STYLING
    The Swiftís key styling attributes remain valid in the case of the 1.2 variants, including the unique wrap-around effect of the carís glass area, the sharply raked windscreen, wide body and prominent headlight and tail light clusters.

    The effect is both youthful and streamlined, accentuated by bold wheel arches and chunky proportions that place the wheels at the corners of the car to minimise overhangs while optimising the packaging and roominess of the cabin.

    SUZUKI SWIFT 1.2 INTERIOR
    The interior of the 1.2 models retains the fresh, spacious ambience that has become synonymous with the Swift range. The four-door layout allows convenient access to front and rear seats, while the ergonomic design favours intuitive interaction with the carís controls and switchgear.

    The smart fascia is finished in black, with clear, analogue instrumentation, while the steering wheel is tilt adjustable. The instrument binnacle is flanked by a centre stack containing the ventilation and air-conditioning controls, as well as the sound system in the case of the GL version.

    The finishes and materials continue the Swiftís reputation for quality and durability, while access to the 210 litre luggage compartment is convenient, thanks to the large-opening tailgate. The rear seatback can also be folded down to expand the Swiftís cargo carrying capacity to a generous 533 litres.

    Interior stowage options include a useful recess above the glove compartment and door pockets front and rear. In addition, the cabin provides five fixed beverage holders. A sixth, pop-out holder is mounted in the fascia in front of the passenger side air vent in order to keep the beverage cool.
    SUZUKI SWIFT 1.2 DRIVETRAIN AND SUSPENSION
    The big news is the introduction of Suzukiís latest-generation K12-series 1,2-litre engine. The four-cylinder, 16-valve design employs electronic fuel injection and VVT variable valve timing to achieve optimum efficiency and performance.

    The new engine has a rated maximum power output of 63 kW at 6 000 r/min, linked to torque peak of 113 Nm at 4 500 r/min. The variable valve timing optimises torque and power across the rev range in the interests of optimum response and efficiency.

    As in all Swift models, drive is to the front wheels, with a choice of transmissions. GA models are only offered with a five-speed manual gearbox, while GL derivatives can also be ordered with an optional four-speed automatic transmission.

    The five-speed manual transmission features a new assist mechanism for reduced driver effort, and an optimised shift-lever pattern in the interests of smoothness. Also new is an inhibitor mechanism that guides the gear level from fifth to fourth gear when changing down, preventing accidental shifting into reverse gear.

    The shift updates to the manual gearbox are accompanied by a newly developed clutch featuring an hydraulic release system that is precise, smooth and quiet.

    The automatic transmissionís shift design features a straight pattern for ease of use.

    The Swift enjoys an enviable reputation for agile and responsive handling, thanks to a stiff and lightweight body structure, linked to an optimised suspension set-up. That suspension remains unchanged in the case of the new 1.2 versions.

    Thus, MacPherson struts, coil springs and an anti-roll bar still do duty at the front, coupled with a torsion beam, dampers and coil springs at the rear. Also retained is the Swiftís variable ratio, electrically assisted steering, which offers quick response and easy manoeuvrability, thanks to a compact 9,6 metre turning circle.

    The Swift 1.2 is fitted with large, ventilated front disc brakes and efficient rear drum brakes. Latest-generation ABS anti-lock assistance is standard on the GL model. The system features Brake Assist and Engine Drag Control (EDC) to optimise braking force and prevent wheel lock-up, even when the road surface is wet or slippery.

    Of particular note is the raised ride height, and the high-profile tyres, incorporated in the interests of traversing the often poor road surfaces encountered by SA road users. This makes the new Swift 1.2 less susceptible to damage from potholes, and allows it to cope more easily with compromised road surfaces.

    Both GA and GL models run on 14-inch steel wheels fitted with full wheel covers and shod with 165/80 R14 tyres.
    SUZUKI SWIFT 1.2 DYNAMICS AND EFFICIENCY
    With a minimum kerb weight of 960 kg, the Swift lives up to its name as far as performance and response is concerned. Its favourable power-to-weight ratio not only benefits straightline performance and tractability but also fuel economy.

    Thus, the Swift 1.2 Manual achieves a combined cycle fuel consumption figure of 5,7 l/100 km, with an associated CO2 emissions rating of 134 g/km.

    In four-speed automatic guise, the rated fuel consumption for the combined cycle comes to 6,3 l/100 km, linked to CO2 emissions of 149 g/km.

    SUZUKI SWIFT 1.2 RANGE AND EQUIPMENT
    The new Swift 1.2 is offered in two specification levels. The Swift 1.2 GA is aimed at budget conscious, entry-level buyers seeking the agile dynamics, quality and efficiency the Swift nameplate is renowned for, while also benefiting from the added frugality of the K12 engine.

    The 1.2 GL offers identical dynamic attributes, but links those to a more comprehensively equipped interior that adds further comfort and convenience to the 1.2 package.

    SUZUKI SWIFT 1.2 GA
    Offered as a manual-gearbox model only, the Swift 1.2 GA is identical to the dearer 1.2 GL in mechanical terms, ensuring peppy response, efficient fuel economy and engaging road manners.

    For all its entry-level positioning, the Swift 1.2 GA still offers an attractively finished, roomy cabin equipped with ergonomically arranged switchgear, comfortable seating front and rear, and attractive cloth upholstery.

    Included as standard are manual air-conditioning with pollen filter, front head restraints, a remote tailgate release, sun visors with a vanity mirror for the front passenger occupants, a parcel shelf behind the rear bench seat, and four loudspeakers that allow for easy retro-fitting of a sound system.

    Safety features include dual front airbags, as well as front inertia reel seatbelts with pre-tensioners and load limiters The heated rear screen is fitted with a rear wash/wipe system.

    SUZUKI SWIFT 1.2 GL
    The GL model adds a more extensive list of standard comfort and convenience features to the GA versionís specification. While the engine and mechanical underpinnings are identical, the GL also introduces a four-speed automatic transmission as an option.

    Externally, the GL models are fitted with blacked-out A and B-pillars, colour-coded door handles, integrated front fog lights and electrically adjustable, colour-coded exterior mirrors with integrated turn signal indicators.

    The GL interior reflects its more upmarket status with upgraded seat fabric, and an instrument binnacle that includes a rev counter. It also benefits from metallic accents on the steering wheel, the inside door handles, the gear shift lever, and the handbrake.
    Included in the GL package is a CD receiver with four loudspeakers, as well as USB and auxiliary sockets for use with portable music devices. The audio system can be controlled via switches on the steering wheel, and is MP3 playback compatible.
    Furthermore, the GLís list of standard features also includes electric windows, remote central locking and keyless entry. The dual front airbags are retained, and augmented by ABS anti-lock control for the braking system.

    My guess is a 1.2 Swift will no longer run true to its name...

    Pricing is said to be 608K for the manual transmission and 648K for the automatic.
    Which is a steal if you ask me, but it will still depend on the final specification. If it looks much like the 1.2L variants sold in other countries with dual airbags and ABS even with puny looking steel rims, then this is a better proposition than a Mirage.
    It is a legit subcompact and has a proper engine with the right cylinder count (4cyl vs the rough 3cyl in the Mirage). Plus Swift has always been a good handler. The added practicality of the more efficient smaller engine plus the price slash will add more appeal to it.

    "Currently the Japanese automaker offers the Swift hatchback with a 1.4-liter VVT engine for the Philippine market, mated to either a 5-speed manual transmission or a 4-speed automatic."

    1. The current Suzuki Swift is nice car, easy to drive, powerful engine yet economical in terms of fuel consumption, except the underpinnings which is very weak. I claimed a warranty to my 2 year old Swift which clocked only 12k kms during the warranty claim. Wheels Erod replaced the steering rack & pinion as well as the left & right stabilizer links. Alas, after 2 weeks the same problem occurred.

    Looking for a right solution to the same problem, which im not satisfied what the casa did, I scouted for an under chassis specialist. Findings: the suspension bushings are broken, tie rod ends are loose, rack ends are loose & the stabilizer links are also broken. Since I don't want to spend so much on the car I love to drive, yet I tried the (polyurethane) injection system, if this will not work no harm in trying as I plan to replace it anyway.

    Result: when I test drove the car after the polyurethane injection, dejavu! the car went back to its original tight as well as the "thug" sound was present again as the Swift rides on a sporty side. Twice I drove it back from Manila to Morong, Bataan in a week's time, the suspension is still as tight as day one I had it repaired.

    2. Suzuki Philippines. you have a very good car yet the dealership service sucks! Hindi ko alam kung sinasadya nilang wag ayusin ng tama ang mga sasakyan para maka claim ang dealership sa Suzuki ng maraming warranties kasi kumikita sila on that process, labor as well incentives? correct me if im wrong. PMS labor & parts are sooo steep as well! Top up for a 5k kms (since im using synthetic), they're charging 5.1k kung palit spark 6.1k? mahal pa sa T86 ko? well..

    But I love my Swift!

    based on my observation & feel re: handing of the car, very tight na siya compared matapos siyang gawin ng Wheels Erod. Jervis gave me a six months warranty. credit must go to sir bugoyski, a tsikot member in swift thread who went to jervis if im not mistaken early this year or late last year. same problem encountered with his 2011 Suzuki swift.
