The Swift's design has seen moderate changes since its global introduction in 2004, primarily targeting the European market. The upcoming Swift may incorporate features from the existing 'Heartect' platform, aligned with up-to-date safety standards. Key safety features in the concept include autonomous emergency braking, an adaptive high-beam, and a driver monitoring system.

While engine specifics are yet to be disclosed, there is mention of a possible mild-hybrid system. The current European Swift model houses a 1.2-litre engine coupled with a 12V mild-hybrid system. In Australia, options exclude the 12V system but include a 1.2-litre engine and a turbocharged 1.0-litre variant.
