The new generation Suzuki Swift Sport will make its world debut at the Frankfurt motor show, Suzuki has confirmed.
The new Swift Sport is a refined sport compact resulting from the first full model change since the launch of the original Swift Sport in 2006. It has a more aggressive and dignified exterior look thanks to a low-slung form that gives a sense of stability and tension, and a big front grille that evokes a sporty performance feel. The cabin combines essential sportiness with a high-quality look and feel, and design features that heighten excitement about the driving experience.
Higher power and lower fuel consumption are delivered by the M16A engine, which Suzuki developed exclusively for the Swift Sport. The four cylinder 1.6 litre engine has 134PS and is mated to a specially developed six-speed manual transmission, resulting in performance that is both exciting and environmentally responsible. The new Swift Sport offers superior cornering stability and brisker, more responsive handling thanks to struts with internal rebound springs and an exclusive rear-suspension design.
High levels of safety are assured by features such as a light, stiff, impact-absorbing body, seven airbags (including curtain airbags and a driver’s knee airbag); and ESP® (Electronic Stability Program).
Sadly, the production Swift Sport has none of the bodywork modifications we saw on the S-Concept car at Geneva in March of this year — click here for images.
Expect more details such as price, availability, performance, fuel economy and CO2 emissions as we get to the Frankfurt show.
