The K12D, four-cylinder engine is replaced by a new Z12E, three-cylinder unit. However, the cubic capacity is still the same at 1,200 cc. Suzuki claims that the new engine is 8 per cent more fuel efficient. There is a CVT automatic transmission available with both variants. Moreover, an optional AllGrip all-wheel drive system will be offered on Ultra variants with a manual gearbox later this year. The AllGrip variants will also get wider tyres in the front and rear and an increased ride height to increase the ground clearance.

The hatchback will come with a 12V mild hybrid system as standard to enhance the fuel economy. Suzuki says that they have worked on improving the NVH levels to reduce noise, vibration and harshness. This is the first time that the company has applied sound and vibration adhesive to the underbody to reduce transmission of noise and vibration into the cabin, particularly on bumpy roads.
