The new Suzuki Swace has arrived in Ireland

The new Suzuki Swace has arrived in Ireland, priced from €30,995.

It’s the brand’s first estate car and comes to market as an exclusively hybrid vehicle.

The Swace is the second new model to be launched from the Suzuki/Toyota collaborative business agreement. Based on the Toyota Corolla Hybrid Estate, the Swace is almost identical except for a new Suzuki signature front end and Suzuki badging.

Suzuki Swace in Ireland

In Ireland the Swace will be sold in one trim level, SZ-T, with a high specification. Standard equipment includes dual zone automatic air conditioning, eight-inch multimedia audio system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, heated front seats, heated steering wheel, rear parking camera and pre-collision emergency braking system.

The Swace is available in a choice of five colours in Ireland.

A ‘less-is-more’ approach has been taken inside the Swace, with a simple interior design that focuses on spaciousness, comfort and practicality. Material quality is good with plenty of soft touch materials and chrome or silver accents.

The Swace has a 596-litre boot. The carpeted floorboard can be placed in a lower position to store taller objects and is also reversible with a resin backside that can be used for stowing wet or dirty items. The compartment can be easily expanded into a fully flat space by using the remote folding lever to fold down the second-row seats, which creates up to 1,606-litres of luggage space.

There is a detachable tonneau cover for privacy that can be retracted with a single touch. The luggage compartment is equipped with auto-illuminating lights and DC12V accessory socket for added convenience.

Swace Hybrid

The Swace’s hybrid powertrain is shared with the Corolla. The 1.8-litre petrol electric hybrid has a power output of 122 hp and CO2 emissions of just 103 g (WLTP). The hybrid system optimally drives the Swace with the motor, engine or both depending on driving conditions. In EV drive mode, the vehicle is driven solely by its electric motor with power supplied from the battery.

The Suzuki Swace arrives in Ireland along with a new Suzuki Vitara Hybrid and the new generation Suzuki S-Cross.

2021 saw the arrival of an updated Suzuki Swift. Every model in the Suzuki line-up now offers hybrid technology.

The Swace is manufactured in the UK and is available now.
