The compact Suzuki Swift is now available with permanent 4WD system with a 1.2-litre petrol engine, five doors in either SZ3 or SZ4 grades.
Visually the SZ3 model is distinguished from the standard front-wheel drive variant with a slightly increased body ride height of 25mm and 4×4 badging.
The SZ4 model has a more rugged appearance and gets also front and rear skid plates, black wheel arch extensions and black side skirts.
The 4-wheel drive system is fully automatic and permanent, transferring additional torque to the rear wheels when required via a viscous coupling.
The model is just 65kg heavier than an equivalent 2WD petrol model and emissions are only 10g/km higher at 126g/km.
The 4WD Swift is priced at £11,516 for SZ3 and £13,116 for the higher specified SZ4 model.Tags: Suzuki, Suzuki Swift
