Maruti Suzuki Swift, which is sold under the Suzuki brand globally, is headed for a facelift soon. The new generation Swift was seen testing on roads wrapped in camouflage with one of the older generation Swift hatchbacks on its tail. Suzuki is expected to introduce the new Swift next year. It is likely to get several updates on the inside as well as outside. Some of these changes can already been seen in the test mule.

One of the key changes in the new Swift is the change in the rear door handles. Instead of the handles mounted on the C pillar, the new generation model is seen wearing the more traditional door handle under the window. While the rest of the car remains similar to the existing models, it is expected to come with a redesigned grille, new set of headlights and taillights.
