A sportier Swift but not a swifter Swift. By Chris Ng
Those who have thought that the Swift is a little bit too cutesy and could use a bit of sportiness should read on. Suzuki Malaysia has slapped on news exterior bits that gives the compact hatch a more edgier look.

Dubbed with the RS moniker, the Swift comes with a gradient black-red decaled roof, body decals, red accents on the body kit, back spoiler, LED daytime running lights, 16-inch gun-metallic alloys and the RS emblem. Of course. 

The Swift RS also has its interior redecorated to suit its new image. It features red-and-black leather seats and red strip on door trim. The hightlight here would be the new 2-din touchscreen audio system. It displays the reverse camera and has a True Mirroring function that mimics the screen of your smartphone. Yes, you can display Waze here.

No changes to the engine, it remains the 1.4-litre engine mated to an automatic transmission. You can have the Swift RS for RM79,388 OTR without insurance. The car comes with a three-year warranty or 100,000km, and the roof decal comes with a two-year warranty. By the way, the RS stands for Reinvent Style; just in case you thought it was something sporty.
