2011 Suzuki Swift gets first details and photos

Suzuki has just revealed the first photos of the 2011 Swift compact hatchback.

This new model boasts a refreshed design, as well as new and improved powerplants. First off, as you can see above, the style of the new Swift has been streamlined a bit. In terms of size, the new compact is 3.5 inches longer than its predecessor, guaranteeing more legroom.

Eco-consious customers are definitely going to be thrilled by the improved 1.2-liter inline-four cylinder engine, capable of 93 HP. Together with the variable valve timing tech and the manual transmissions, the 2011 Suzuki Swift can achieve an impressive 47 mpg (US) on the combined EU cycle, plus 116 g/km of CO2.

Sadly for US compact hatch fans, the new Swift hasn’t been confirmed for launch. Instead, this fall will see it hit the European markets.
