The new 1.5-litre Swift RS five-door limited edition model follows the success of the Swift1 variant earlier this year.
Based on the dual airbag Swift GLX version, the RS features 15-inch aluminium alloy wheels, a rear upper spoiler, front fog lamps, smoked reflector headlamps and RS body decals.
Inside, sports bucket front seats trimmed in luxury Alcantara upholstery feature, as well as a leather-bound steering wheel with silver stitching.
The RS specification also includes climate air conditioning, keyless starting and entry and electrically folding door mirrors with built-in indicators.
Priced at $21,500 driveaway for the 5-speed manual and $22,990 driveaway for the automatic, the RS is available in Silver, Black, White Pearl, Red and Kashmir Blue.
“Suzuki did a tremendous job in the design of the Swift to not only give it such long-lasting appeal but also for it to still provide a driving experience unmatched in the class,” said Gary Collins, Automobile Sales Manager for Suzuki New Zealand Limited.
“The Swift continues to lead the mini-car and light segment while challenging larger car sales,” he said. “The shift in market preferences towards smaller cars continues to move in favour of Suzuki with its expertise in compact vehicles.”
