The facelifted Suzuki Swift hatch has appeared online months before it is due to arrive in Australian showrooms.

The images of the updated Suzuki Swift show subtle styling changes to the nose and tail.

In addition to a flash of chrome in the grille and a different bend in the rear bumper, the 2021 Suzuki Swift is expected to get minor technology updates such as blind-zone warning, rear cross-traffic alert and a digital speed display in the instrument cluster.

It is unclear if these extra features will be standard across the revised Suzuki Swift range, or available on selected models only.

As reported by CarAdvice in March, the new Suzuki Swift is expected in local showrooms in the second half of 2020. It is unclear if the COVID-19 lockdowns will push back the arrival time locally.

CarAdvice has contacted Suzuki Australia and will update this story.
