Suzuki is on a roll in SA, increasing its sales in 2017 by a huge 56% and expanding its model line-up with products like the Ignis.
However, it has continued to sell the outdated Swift in SA even though the new Swift was launched in Europe in the second quarter of 2017.
Finally the reason for the delay became apparent when Suzuki SA took local motoring journalists to India and told them they cannot write about the new model until March.
It seemed bizarre given that the car is already on sale in parts of the world, but SA will not be getting the same car. We will get the Maruti-Suzuki version although that too has just gone on sale in India.
So if you are waiting for the new Swift, it looks as though your wait might be nearly over. – BD Motor News
