Suzuki Swift Attitude special edition has been launched exclusively in the UK market for a starting price of 13,499 pounds (around INR 12.45 lakhs). The new derivative of the popular supermini is based on the base SZ3 variant but offers a bunch of goodies for 1,000 pounds (around INR 92,200) more.
Visually, the Suzuki Swift Attitude differentiates itself from the regular SZ3 variant by means of carbon-effect skirts all around, chrome highlight for the front grille, dual-tone 16-inch alloy wheels, and a roof-mounted spoiler.
The standard equipment list includes rear privacy windows (with dark tint), 6 airbags, Autonomous Emergency Braking, DAB radio, Bluetooth connectivity, leather wrapped steering, and many more. The Swift Attitude is available in Fervent Red, Premium Silver, Mineral Grey, Pure White, Super Black, and Burning Red color options.
The Swift Attitude is offered only in petrol avatar. The hatchback is powered by a 1.2-liter DualJet naturally aspirated four-cylinder motor which is mated to a standard 5-speed manual transmission to deliver 90 PS. Thanks to a WLTP (Worldwide harmonized Light vehicle Test Procedure) CO2 emission figure of 124 g/km, the Swift Attitude is positioned in the 25% benefit-in-kind band for company car customers in the UK.
The Suzuki Swift Attitude benefits from attractive finance offers in the UK including 0% Annual Percentage Rate (APR) on PCP (Personal Contract Purchase) deals. PCP buyers receive 500 pound (around INR 46,100) contribution from Suzuki and are required to pay only 155 pounds (around INR 14,300) per month for 48 months (customers need to pay a final amount of 5,069 pounds to retain the car after four years).
The Suzuki Swift Attitude is a good 4,500 (around INR 4.14 lakhs) cheaper than the Ford Fiesta 1.0 EcoBoost ST Line variant. With the Swift-sport inspired aesthetics and tempting finance offers, Suzuki UK is hoping to make its special edition hatchback appealing to young buyers who would find it difficult to insure the actual Swift Sport.
