New 1.2 DualJet (K12D) engine with 12V SHVS system
Under the hood of the updated Swift is a new 1.2 DualJet gasoline engine with the designation K12D. The unit is equipped with a dual injection system that provides a dynamic response to gas and a low fuel appetite. The balance between performance and economy has been achieved through the use of an electrically controlled variable intake valve (VVT) system, a variable displacement oil pump and electronically controlled oil jets for piston cooling.
Suzuki Swift after restyling is very economical. This is due to the upgraded 12V SHVS mild hybrid system with a lithium-ion battery with increased capacity from 3Ah to 10Ah. During braking, the hybrid system converts kinetic energy into electrical energy, which is stored in a lithium-ion battery. In the next step, the energy is used by the ISG device with an electric motor function to assist the internal combustion engine during acceleration, which reduces fuel consumption. When the engine is stopped, it automatically turns off and immediately starts with the clutch depressed.
Intelligent security systems
In addition to the many currently available smart safety systems such as Dual Sensor Brake Assist (pre-collision response with monoscopic camera and laser sensor), Lane Departure Warning and High Beam Assist, the updated model is now equipped with traffic sign recognition (Traffic Sign) Sign recognition, blind spot monitoring and lane departure prevention.
Traffic sign recognition
The traffic sign recognition system uses a single-lens camera to monitor the road. When it detects speed limit or no overtake signs, it displays an icon on the screen to remind the driver which sign just passed.
Blind Spot Monitor
Two rear-mounted side radar sensors detect vehicles in or approaching the rear blind spot and alert the driver with a warning LED icon in the respective rearview mirrors to help change lanes.
Rear Cross Traffic Alert
When reversing at speeds up to 8 km/h, the car uses two rear-mounted radar sensors to warn the driver of approaching vehicles. When a collision risk is detected, the system alerts the driver with an information display and an audible warning. This extremely useful feature provides safety, for example, when reversing out of parking spaces, when rear and side visibility is limited on one or both sides of the vehicle.
Lane Departure Warning
At speeds between 60 and 160 km/h, the single-lens camera follows the road in front of the vehicle and recognizes road markings. When it detects that the vehicle may inadvertently cross the line, the system automatically guides the driver back onto the correct path by activating electric power steering.
