The Suzuki Swace: a stylish petrol hybrid

Aug 31, 2021

The Suzuki Swace is a stylish and versatile estate car with an athletic design, smooth and stable ride comfort, and advanced hybrid performance. Well worth a look, particularly for city drivers.

Swace 3Standard specification is high and the SZ-T model we offer includes seven airbags, pre-collision system, dual zone automatic air conditioning, seven-inch LCD colour information screen, heated front seats, heated steering wheel, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto device connectivity, rear parking camera, eight-inch central dash touchscreen and Dynamic Radar Cruise control with full speed range.

The Swace is the second new model to be launched from the Suzuki / Toyota collaborative Business agreement. Based on the Toyota Corolla Hybrid Estate with Suzuki signature front design changes. It's manufactured in the UK.

Dynamic and athletic exterior styling

Designed with a low centre of gravity, the Swace stands out with its wide stance and powerful rearward-flowing body lines, matched to a sporty front face with sharp bi-beam LED headlamps

The large grille opening and strong fog lamp bezels are inherited from Suzuki’s signature sporty design which together with the front bumper positioned low to the ground creates an overall impression of stability. The grille mesh and fog lamp garnish both feature a honeycomb pattern with a painted black finish to further accentuate its sporty feel.

Versatile interior design

Swace 7A ‘less-is-more’ approach has been taken inside the Swace, with an elegant yet simple interior design that focuses on spaciousness, comfort and practicality.

Contributing to the sense of openness inside the cabin is a wide instrument panel designed with continuous lines that dynamically flow to the door trim. A combination of soft padding and chrome or silver accents throughout the cabin highlights the overall quality and elegance of the interior.

Cabin comfort

The cabin offers versatility and comfort to support the active lifestyles of both its driver and passengers. With a generous tandem distance of 928 mm between the front and rear seats, the rear cabin comfort and legroom is one of the best in its class.

Convenient storage spaces can be found throughout the cabin, offering ample room for storing small items such as phones and drinks in both the first and second rows.

Luggage space 

Swace 5The large 596-litre luggage compartment provides ample room for a variety of luggage or recreational items. For added versatility, the rear carpeted floorboard can be placed in a lower position to store taller objects and is also reversible with a resin backside that can be used for stowing wet or dirty items.

The compartment can be easily expanded into a fully flat space by using the remote folding lever to fold down the second-row seats. Privacy needs are addressed with a detachable tonneau cover that can be retracted with a single touch, and the luggage compartment is equipped with auto-illuminating lights and DC12V accessory socket for added convenience.

Hybrid performance

The Swace’s hybrid system combines a powerful electric motor with a 1.8 litre petrol engine exclusively designed for hybrid system use, delivering a seamless driving feeling with powerful acceleration as well as excellent fuel economy and low emissions. The hybrid system optimally drives the Swace with the motor, engine or both depending on driving conditions.
