134 HP and better handling

The new Swift Sport is the highlight of the Suzuki line up at the 64th International Motor Show in Frankfurt.

The Swift Sport is the performance flagship of the Swift model range and offers higher levels of tuning, steering and braking performance than the standard Swift on which it's based.

The new Swift Sport's exterior design reflects the model's evolution towards a more sporting look. The ground-hugging form gives a sense of stability, the large front grille hints at the performance within and is flanked by big, distinctive finned fog lamp bezels that add even more sporting character.

Aerodynamic parts exclusive to the new Swift Sport control the airflow and give the car a lower visual centre of gravity. Newly developed high-intensity discharge headlamps with a metallic-gray coating as well as new design rear combination lamps heighten the aggressive exterior design.

Sporty, exclusive design features in the new Swift Sport's cabin include new design sport seats in an exclusive fabric together with a new five-dial meter cluster.

Since the new Swift Sport is the performance flagship of the Swift series, Suzuki pursued higher levels of chassis performance and handling. Increased spring rates and added rebound springs in the front struts significantly contribute to cornering stability.

Thanks to the addition of a variable intake system with increased valve lift, maximum power is up to 134 horsepower.. Maximum torque is up from 148Nm to 160Nm.
