2022 Suzuki Swift price and specs

The Suzuki Swift range has been shuffled somewhat for 2022, and there's a new, larger 9.0-inch touchscreen available.

Published

The Suzuki Swift has received some minor specification adjustments including a new, larger touchscreen, but prices have increased.

Suzuki has two distributors in this country – Suzuki Australia and Suzuki Queensland – and the Swift line-up varies depending on the state.

For 2022, outside of Queensland you can buy a Swift in GL S, GL S Plus, GLX Turbo and Sport guises.

The old GL and GL Plus no longer appear on Suzuki’s website, and the new GL S and GL S Plus include LED headlights, climate control air-conditioning and keyless entry and start as standard.

In Queensland, the range comprises GL Navigator, GL, GL Plus, GLX Turbo and Sport, with the new national GL S and GL S Plus marketed as the GL Limited Edition and GL+ Limited Edition.

All Sport models plus Queensland’s GL Navigator are the only variants to retain the brand’s 7.0-inch screen, with all other models receiving a larger 9.0-inch unit fitted locally (pictured above).

The 9.0-inch unit sourced from China still has Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, but there’s no satellite navigation.

The range now opens at $23,490 before on-roads ($22,490 list in Queensland), a considerable hike from even two years ago.

In 2020, the Swift range opened at $17,690 before on-road costs. Suzuki has continued to incrementally increase prices over the past few years, and for 2022 all carryover variants are up by $1000 compared to last year.
