Suzuki Swift Upgrade Alarm

Suzuki Blog Posts

The current version of the Suzuki Swift (Generation 3) came out it 2010.

The top of the line RXS model comes with the Suzuki Smart proximity key and push to start button. The other models simply have a traditional remote key.

Here I look at what security the Swift comes with and how it can be improved.

Factory Alarm

The factory alarm on the swift is about as basic as they come.

The alarm has door and boot protection but does not cover the bonnet, (I have some information that suggests some models do but the 2012 model I tested did not).

It lacks an internal motion sensor and the alarm uses the horn which is not overly loud!

If you are looking to upgrade the alarm then my recommendation is the Cobra AK4615 CAN-BUS alarm which offers bonnet protection, wireless battery back-up siren which make far more noise then the factory system, plus has Ultrasonic internal protection as standard.

The Cobra works with factory smart key as well as the models with a traditional remote key so you’re covered regardless of which model you have.

If you have an older Gen 2 Swift (2004-2010) then AK4615 will also work as will any decent Plip/Upgrade alarm such as the Cobra AB3868.

If you no longer have working remote controls then a remote upgrade alarm is also an option. My pick would be the Cobra AK4198.
