Sadly, U.S. buyers missed out on the outgoing Suzuki Swift. Having seen and been in this car several times, we can undoubtedly say it's nothing like the old econobox it once was. European drivers are lucky enough to have this Mini alternative as it also provides good performance and a fun driving experience. And now, German buyers will have the chance to customize their cars with a range of upcoming factory accessories.
Set to be available for the redesigned 2011 model, the produce lineup is called "X-ITE" and it includes a variety of styling parts for both the interior and exterior. Add-ons include a body kit that has a new front and rear apron, side skirts, and a roof spoiler. The wheel arches can also be fitted with a new set of 17-inch alloy wheels with performance tires. The exterior is further enhanced with the "X-ITE" logo. Inside, there's a new aluminum shift knob, stainless steel door sills, and black floor mats with silver stitching and an embroidered logo.
Prices for the accessories range from €65 for the door sills to €620 for the alloy wheels.
