Default Suzuki Unveils New Swift with 1.4 liter engine And Handling Upgrades

Suzuki Unveils New Swift with 1.4 liter engine And Handling Upgrades
Suzuki Australia today released details of the powertrain for the all new Swift range, which goes on sale in February.
The Swift range will be powered by an all-new 1.4-litre engine offering excellent performance and class leading economy.Optimum fuel efficiency was a key driver for engineers and the all-new Swift uses just 5.5 litres per 100 km and produces 132 grams of C02 per km.

That represents a 13 per cent improvement over the old engine and makes it the most economical naturally aspirated engine in the class.The all-new K14B engine produces 70 kilowatts of power and 130 Newton-metres of torque.
The undersquare design (73mm x 82mm bore x stroke) offers a longer stroke than the superseded M15A engine and, in combination with Electronic Throttle Control, ensures better launch feel and overtaking performance.
Suzuki engineers concentrated on weight reduction as part of the new engine development, and the new K14B comes complete with a lightweight plastic cylinder head cover, lighter pistons and narrower crankshaft bearings.

Other key features of the new engine include:
- An aluminium alloy cylinder head for low weight and excellent heat radiation.
- A centre plug pentroof combustion chamber.
- Variable valve timing.
- Cross flow intake and exhaust layout, and
Direct drive valve train for increased rigidity.
Electronic throttle control currently only available on the Swift Sport will be standard across the new Swift range, eliminating the mechanical link between the accelerator and the throttle body.
The computer controlled system ensures improved engine management control, superior fuel economy, better launch feel and more refinement at idle.
The engine is matched to a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic transmission.The five-speed manual transmission has a new assist mechanism for reduced driver effort, while an optimised shift-lever pattern further promotes smooth changes.

It also features a new mechanism to prevent accidental shifts from fifth gear to reverse, while a new hydraulic release system in the clutch further aids smooth, effortless gearchanges.
A revised four-speed automatic transmission is also available with a revised straight shift pattern, replacing the gated version of the old model.
It also comes with a lock-up slip control, offering a wider lock-up range for improved power and efficiency, while also suppressing torque converter slip at light acceleration loads.

The all-new Swift automatic also features a hill-hold function to ensure fuss-free launches in hilly urban areas.
