Suzuki is pleased to announce the addition of the low emissions 1.3-litre DDiS model to the recently launched Swift range. The new Swift DDiS uses a new 75PS 1.3-litre engine, offers low emissions of 109g/km with combined fuel consumption of 4.2 litres of fuel for 100kms or 67.3mpg, giving an estimated driving range of around 1,000kms.

New Swift DDiS is available for €17,500 as a five door GLX model which includes seven airbags,ESP, air conditioning, 16 inch alloy wheels, USB port and heated electric door mirrors as standard equipment.

The Euro 5 emissions turbo charged engine is now even smoother and more responsive than before with maximum torque of 190Nm from just 1,750rpm and 0-100 km/h in 12.7 seconds. It offers an eight per cent improvement in fuel consumption and produces nine per cent lower exhaust emissions than the 1.3-litre diesel used in the previous Swift. With emissions of 109g/km mean that Swift DDiS costs just €104 in road tax.

With the Swift, driving a compact car does not mean settling for less; within its modest dimensions, Suzuki has condensed all the performance, impact safety, handling and other essentials for great enjoyment and satisfaction while easing the environmental burden.

Launched last September, the Swift range with Dual VVT 1.2-litre petrol engine starts from €13,650 for the three door GL up to €17,550 for the five door GLX with automatic transmission. Emissions for the petrol engine with manual transmission are 116g/km making it one of the cleanest compact superminis on sale.

“The new Swift DDiS is a great addition to the expanding range of Suzuki diesel vehicles and gives choice and variety to the discerning Suzuki customer” said Niall O’Gorman, General Manager, Suzuki Ireland.
