Sales were so good in Europe, that the second generation Swift started production in Hungary in June 2010. Production did not start in Japan until September. The second generation won the 2011 RJC Car of the Year award. Sales hit two million in January 2011. In 2012, Suzuki started producing the Swift in Thailand. 

Over the eight years of production 13% of the 3 million cars were sold in Japan, 45% in India and 23% in Europe.
