Between the two headlamps, there’s a dark chrome finish with a honeycomb pattern black grille. The company logo is now placed above the grille and below the bonnet.

There are several changes made to the front bumper, and the front fog lamps get a separate housing, offering a clearer view than before. Except for the side profile, where there are no changes except for the 16-inch alloy wheels. The rear taillights have been updated; now they are smaller and sportier. The tailgate receives hybrid badging.

The new Swift outgoing model is longer by 15mm, wider by 40mm, and taller by 30mm, but the wheelbase remains the same at 2,450mm. The company refers to it as the fourth-generation model, while the new Swift is based on the Heartect platform.
