Suzuki Swift survived this high-speed crash like a boss – Video


One of the many severe accidents that take place at Nurburgring every year, a Suzuki Swift was intact in spite of banging into barriers three times.

During a race, a Suzuki Swift driver lost control and hit the barriers three times before the car came to a halt. Though it is not clear what caused the crash, it seems like the driver entered the curve at a higher speed than the car could handle.

This resulted in the car hitting the first barrier and then hitting the second, and the third, before the car comes to a halt. In spite of being at such high speed, the car did not topple. On top of it, it seems that there is barely any damage to the car. All occupants escaped unhurt. The airbags also had deployed.

Swift sales recently surpassed 5 million mark globally. Off that, 54% were sold in India. The Euro-spec Swift comes with a 5 star safety rating, while the Indi-spec Swift gets a 0 safety rating.

Current generation Suzuki is all set to be replaced by a new generation Swift. The new Swift is based on Suzuki’s latest global compact platform which is lighter and more rigid than before. The global supermini would be packing more equipment and is expected to have a better crash rating.

Interior (also leaked) adopts a brand new dashboard design. We expect the cabin to feature better quality materials and roomier rear bench. To be positioned below the Baleno, the Swift will cater to a young audience with its sporty appeal and efficient powertrain.

The range-topping Swift sport is reported to feature the 1.4-litre BoosterJet turbocharged petrol motor. Both manual and automatic transmissions will be on offer.
