The next-generation Suzuki Swift has been spied in testing at the Nurburgring.

The all-new model has been described to Autocar by sources from within the company as “a design evolution of the current model. It looks more grown up, but will have the same sort of appeal”.

The model pictured here is the Swift in its five-door guise, although the heavy disguise gives little away about its styling. The interior has also been captured for the first time.

The small hatchback is the biggest-selling model in Suzuki’s line-up, accounting for over 54,000 sales in the UK since the car was launched in 2005, and the company makes no secret of how vital the new model is.

It will ride on a completely new platform, and will feature a range of small petrol engines that will utilise advanced variable-valve technology and possibly turbocharging to improve economy and performance.

There are no details regarding the diesel engines available, but with Volkswagen’s recently acquired 20 per cent stake in Suzuki there is speculation that the German maker could provide the diesel tech in the new Swift.

Expect prices to remain competitive, with the range starting at around £10,000.

The Suzuki Swift is better than ever - but is that good enough, when the crowded supermini segment is filled with excellent alternatives?

I would have thought its a bit early for replacement as the current model hasn't been with us all that long. Anyway will be intersting to see what it looks like, and if they borrow much from VW. Hopefully won't just be a carbon coby of the Polo...

With you all the way on the Aux port, but sat nav???

Getting lost and driving the long way round through country lanes makes it even better!!!

Oh hang on - with the software on some, sat nav it is then - fix to the long way round!

Seriously, agreed all it really needs.....
