Suzuki Launches Swift 1.3 DDiS in the UK

Suzuki has announced the addition of the low emissions 1.3-litre DDiS model to the recently launched Swift range. Available in all 148 Suzuki dealerships from the beginning of June, the Swift DDiS uses a new 75 bhp 1.3-litre engine, offers low emissions of 109g/km with combined fuel consumption of 67.3 mpg.

The New Swift DDiS is available for £12,890 as a five door model in SZ3 grade, which includes seven airbags, air conditioning, 16 inch alloy wheels, USB port and heated electric door mirrors as standard equipment.

The Euro 5 turbocharged engine under the bonnet is now even smoother and more responsive than before with a 0 62 mph in 12.7 seconds. It offers an eight percent improvement in fuel consumption and produces 9 percent lower tailpipe emissions than the 1.3-litre diesel used in the previous Swift.

“With the Swift, driving a compact car does not mean settling for less; within its modest dimensions, Suzuki has condensed all the performance, impact safety, handling and other essentials for great enjoyment and satisfaction while easing the environmental burden,” Suzuki says.

Launched last September, the Swift range with Dual VVT 1.2-litre petrol engine starts from £10,210 for the SZ2 Three door and goes up to £13,525 for the SZ4 Five door with automatic transmission. Emissions for the petrol engine with manual transmission are 116 grams of CO2 per kilometer, making it one of the cleanest compact superminis on sale in Britain.

Until the end of June, Suzuki is providing an even more flexible ways to buy a Swift, with the introduction of its low deposit, low monthly payment PCP (Personal Contract Purchase) scheme. Suzuki’s low rate (4.9%) PCP is an ideal route for younger buyers or those who simply don’t wish to put a large deposit down for a new car.
