Due to the black out portion of the C-pillars the car gets a floating roof effect. The rear windscreen seems to be bigger whereas the tail lights are somewhat smaller in size. The boot-lid has less curves. The new Swift also features C-Pillar mounted rear door handles. The tail lamps would be LED ones for the top end model.
