The second generation SF Swift, co-developed by part owner General Motors, was bigger, longer, stronger, heavier and roomier than its predecessor.

Power output from the 39kW 1.0 three-cylinder and 74kW 1.3 DOHC 16-valve four-cylinder motors remained static, but excellent aerodynamics helped keep the SF Swift sprightly.

Initially only three-door GA 1.0 manual, GA 1.0 auto and GTi manual models arrived.

During 1990 three four-door sedans joined the range – a 50kW 1.3 single-cam four-cylinder GL, a 70kW 1.6-litre single-cam four-cylinder GLX and a 1.6 GLX 4WD. A three-speed auto was optional on the first two.

No five-door Swift hatchbacks were sold in Australia, as Holden did so in the shape of the MF Barina 1.3.
