LONG WAIT­ING LIST FOR THE SWIFT 1,2 RS

The Witness - Wheels - - MOTORING -

A Spe­cial Edi­tion Suzuki Swift is now on sale, called the Suzuki Swift 1,2 RS. The 1,2 litre 16-valve en­gine has the same free-revving char­ac­ter as its larger sib­lings, but ben­e­fits from its lighter weight and smaller ca­pac­ity to de­liver a com­bined fuel con­sump­tion fig­ure of only 5,3 litres per 100 km.

This en­gine de­liv­ers 63 kW and is mated to a five-speed gear­box in the RS model.

“When we con­cep­tu­alised the 1,2 RS, we set the tar­get of cre­at­ing an ex­cit­ing and vis­ually ap­peal­ing Spe­cial Edi­tion for un­der R200 000. With a price tag of only R184 800 and a rapidly growing wait­ing list, we have surely hit our tar­get,” says André Ven­ter, di­vi­sional man­ager for sales and mar­ket­ing at Suzuki Auto South Africa.

The Swift has a three-year or 30 000 km ser­vice plan and a war­ranty for 100 000 km over the same pe­riod.
