Suzuki Malaysia Automobile (SMA) has relaunched its best-selling model, the Suzuki Swift with a lower price tag of RM71,943.50 (with insurance) for the entry level version. The Premier-spec Swift has a sticker price of RM78,099.50. The fully-imported Swift was selling for RM89,783.50 for the base model, and RM94,387.50 for the higher spec model. Only the Swift Premier wears the sporty bodykit now.
SMA expects to sell around 300 units of this cute and lovable hatchback a month. The highlight of this locally-assembled Swift must be the new robotic welding line set up at a cost of RM20million, promising higher and consistent built quality at the AMM plant in Pekan, Pahang. Its drivetrain remains unchanged with the VVT-equipped 1.5-litre engine mated to a 4-speed automatic ‘box.
The new Suzuki Swift Sport was also unveiled by SMA, and is expected to retail at about RM99,000 for the manual version and circa RM104,000 for the automatic variant. Prices are unconfirmed at time of launch, pending final approval from the government.
