Special edition Suzuki Swift announced
Suzuki Swift SZ-L gets two-tone metallic paint and extra equipment as standard
Suzuki has released details of the special edition Suzuki Swift SZ-L, which is due to go on sale from 1 March.
The car is based on the standard Suzuki Swift SZ3 model – the mid-range version of Suzuki’s supermini – but features some extra equipment and a more striking paint job in an attempt to make the car more appealing to younger buyers.
Only 500 SZ-L models will be made, available in either Boost Blue or Cosmic Black metallic paint, with its roof, rear spoiler and wing mirrors in contrasting Cool White.

As well as the seven airbags, air-conditioning and electronic stability control from the SZ3, the SZ-L also gets the LED daytime running lights and cruise control fitted to the top-of-the-range SZ4 Swift. The interior of the special edition is upholstered in a unique fabric design and the seats, steering wheel and gear gaiter feature exclusive silver stitching.
The SZ-L will use the same 1.2-litre petrol engine as fitted in the SZ3, which returns economy figures of 56.5mpg and 116g/km of CO2.
Suzuki will launch the new Swift SZ-L on two promotional deals. The car will be part of the manufacturer’s VAT-free promotion until the end of March, meaning three-door versions will cost £10,899 while five-door models are priced at £11,316.
Buyers will also be able to buy the special edition on Suzuki’s PCP Driveplan, which requires a deposit of £999, monthly payments of £179 plus an optional final payment after the contracted term.

The idea behind this kind of finance package is that customers can put down a smaller deposit than usual and upgrade their cars more often – the benefit to manufacturers is that customers are more likely to stick with them when they upgrade to a newer model.
