The prices of Suzuki Swift trims have been increased due to sales tax hike and devaluation of Pakistani Rupee (PKR) against US Dollar.
The federal cabinet approved the Finance Supplementary Bill 2023 allowing increase in general sales tax to 18 per cent and additional taxes on luxury items as part of the reforms related to the International Monetary Fund’s Ninth Review.
The uncertain economic situation also accounts for the increase in retail selling prices of the car.
The car is launched in three variants including Swift GL, Swift GL (CVT) and Swift GLX (CVT). The prices of these variants as on February 18, 2023 are given below.
The ex-factory price of Swift GL is Rs3,807,000. The ex-factory price of Swift GL (CVT) is Rs4,092,000 and the ex-factory price of Swift GLX (CVT) is Rs4,462,000.

The engine of Suzuki Swift is enhanced by the VVT technology which delivers more power and fuel efficiency. The Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) gives more control and choice of engaging sports mode for faster and powerful response.
