Suzuki, being the country's leading automaker, holds a big share of the market, and its fourth-generation Swift gained popularity in the Pakistani market due to its contemporary design, and latest features.

The GLX (CVT) variant also features the same engine and transmission as the GL (CVT) variant, with identical specifications for maximum output and torque.
From keyless smart entry to the bold chrome accented grill to the crafted polished alloys, from the muscular body lines to the pillar mounted back-door handles, the all-new Swift exudes raw power. It features Daytime Running Lamps (DRL) and sensor-enabled, adjustable LED projector head lamps.
