The current model, 3rd gen Suzuki Swift has been around since 2012 and has been very popular just like the 2nd gen model. The 3rd gen model is an evolutionary design replacement of the 2nd gen model having the same approach to design but only slightly bigger in dimension with less body weight. Although the engine is smaller being 1.4li compared to the 1.5li’s previous displacement, the Swift’s current body carries with it far lesser weight therefore making the 1.4li more efficient than the previous 1.5li engine.
