Suzuki’s Swace hybrid estate will be priced from £27,499 when it is launched in the UK this month.
It will be available with a 1.8 hybrid CVT drivetrain, offering a maximum combined output of 122PS, official combined fuel consumption of 64.2mpg and CO2 emissions of 99g/km.
The Swace is based on the Toyota Corolla Hybrid estate platform and is the second vehicle to be supplied to Suzuki by the manufacturer under a collaborative business agreement.
The other is the Across SUV, which is based on the Rav4.
Swace will be available in two trim levels – SZ-T (£27,499) and SZ5 (£29,299) with Suzuki expecting to sell 2,000 units in the UK in the first full year.
Standard equipment on SZ-T includes seven airbags, dual zone automatic air conditioning, seven-inch LCD colour display, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, heated front seats, heated steering wheel, rear parking camera and dynamic radar cruise control.
SZ5 adds smart door locking, parking assist, front and rear parking sensors, blind spot monitor, rear cross traffic alert and centre console tray incorporating a wireless charger.
The Swace’s boot offers a luggage capacity of 596 litres, which increases to 1,606 if the rear seats are folded down.
In March, Suzuki was named as the most improved fleet manufacturer of the year in the 2020 Fleet News Awards.
Judges praised its new fleet business programme which was developed as part of a complete rethink in the corporate market.
