Prototypes of the next-gen Suzuki Swift have been spotted on test yet again. This time though the spy shots give us a rather clear look of what this much-awaited model will look like. With the existing generation of the Swift getting a bit too long in the tooth, this new car is expected to spice things up for Suzuki in Europe.

Like the Baleno, the new Swift will get the 1-litre Boosterjet petrol engine. Additionally, there will also be a variant with the so-called SHVS (Smart Hybrid Vehicle by Suzuki), both paired to either a 5-speed manual or a 6-speed auto. During a recent dealer presentation, Suzuki announced the new Swift will have the best fuel consumption amongst B segment hatchbacks in Europe. The new model will measure in at 3.84m in length and 1.74m in width.

Following the launch of the regular model, Suzuki will introduce the high-performance Swift Sport which be sold as an entry-level hot hatch. Under its bonnet will be a 1.4-litre Boosterjet engine that sends power to the front wheels via a 6-speed manual transmission. Now although the Indian market will not be getting the Swift Sport, Maruti Suzuki will launch the next-gen Swift with Indian requirements in mind. The India-spec car will be lighter and more economy-focused.  

Coming back to the Euro-spec model, it is set to be officially presented in December and go on sale sometime next year. When launched, the new Swift will compete with the Volkswagen Polo and the Renault Clio.
