Suzuki Australia has increased the pricing of its best-selling light hatchback, the third-generation Swift.
The entry-level GL Navigator and GL Navigation Plus grades have become $1500 more expensive alongside the mid-range GLX Turbo variant, while the flagship Sport versions are $1000 more expensive.
As such, the manual GL Navigator now kicks off the full-time Swift range from $20,490 plus on-road costs, while the automatic Sport closes it at $29,990 (see full pricing table below).

It’s worth noting the light hatchback was dealt $1300 to $2300 price rises as part of the staggered release of its facelift last year, with the cumulative effect being the GL Navigator and GL Navigator Plus trio no longer start from less than $20,000.
For reference, the GL Navigator and GL Navigator Plus grades are motivated by a 66kW/120Nm 1.2-litre naturally aspirated four-cylinder petrol engine, which is mated to either a five-speed manual or a continuously variable transmission (CVT).
The GLX Turbo goes it alone with an 82kW/160Nm 1.0-litre turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine that’s exclusively paired to a six-speed torque-converter automatic.
Meanwhile, the Sport variants up the ante with a 103kW/230Nm 1.4-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine, which is matched to either a six-speed manual or a six-speed torque-converter automatic.
As reported, the MG3, Toyota Yaris, Volkswagen Polo, Kia Rio, Mazda2 and Skoda Fabia rival is expected to enter its fifth generation in July next year, so stay tuned.
