2024 Suzuki Swift – Safety Features

While the Japan-spec Swift is armed to its teeth with safety features such as ADAS and Multiple Airbags. Furthermore, the Japanese version also comes with high-tensile steel plates and structural adhesives in the body. Moreover it gets ‘Dual Sensor Brake Support II’ incorporating a millimeter-wave radar and a monocular camera. ADAS features also includes Adaptive Cruise Control, Electronic Park Brakes, Brake Hold Function, Lane Keep Assist, Driver Monitoring System with Drowsiness Detection and Adaptive High Beam System.

The India-spec version may not get all the safety features. However, the 2024 Maruti Suzuki Swift is likely to come with multiple airbags, parking sensors, and other mandatory features. We also expect the higher-spec variants of the Swift to get at least a camera based ADAS system.
