Compared to the other subcompact offerings of Suzuki such as the Alto and the Celerio, the 2015 Suzuki Swift has a lot more power under the hood. The first time the Swift was introduced to the Philippine market, it housed a 1.5-liter DOHC 16V I4 engine that produced an outstanding 110hp@6000rpm and 143Nm@4000rpm. The first Suzuki Swift models came in both manual and automatic transmissions.
The current machine powering the new Suzuki Swift got a tad weaker, as the engine’s displacement was whittled down to 1.2-liter and was equipped with VVT technology. The current maximum power output of the machine counts to 87hp@6000rpm, while it produced a maximum torque of 114Nm@4000rpm. On some markets, Swift is also available with a 1.4-liter petrol engine with 94 hp and a 1.6-liter with 134 hp.
The other components of the Suzuki Swift’s powertrain include a rack and pinion steering system with electronic power steering, ventilated discs and leading and trailing drums for the front and rear brakes, and a MacPherson Strut with Coil Spring and Torsion Beam with Coil Spring for the front and rear suspension. 15” alloy wheels and 185/65 R15 tires complete the drivetrain of the hatch.
