Besides Ertiga, Suzuki PH promises to launch 1.2-liter Swift soon

Any takers?
Apr 14, 2014

Suzuki Swift 1.2

Yesterday, we told you that Suzuki Philippines is already gearing up for the imminent launch of the Ertiga compact MPV. Well, it turns out the Ertiga isn't the only new model the Japanese automaker is introducing to our market soon.

We stumbled upon the above teaser on the company's official Facebook page, obviously trumpeting the expected arrival of a 1.2-liter Swift variant. Presently, the subcompact hatchback is only available with a 1.4-liter K14B gasoline engine rated at 94hp and 130Nm. The 1.2-liter version (K12B), meanwhile, is said to produce 92hp and 118Nm.

It is unclear whether Suzuki Philippines will retire the 1.4-liter Swift variant and sell just the 1.2-liter, or offer both engines at the same time.

If you were to get the Swift, which engine displacement would appeal more to you? Take our poll.
