2020 Suzuki Swift Sport Series II coming in May

The Suzuki Swift Sport pocket rocket will be getting a round of updates in May. The Series II model gets blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert safety systems, plus heated side mirrors. Outside there's a new hero orange/black two-tone paint option, and inside a digital speedo will be added. There are no mechanical changes, meaning the 103kW/230Nm 1.4-litre turbo engine continues, sending torque to the front wheels through six-speed manual or automatic transmission options.
