New Suzuki Swift Sport

The third-generation Swift Sport features a lower, wider stance, more aggressive styling, and a torque-to-weight ratio that propels the Swift Sport into genuine hot hatch territory. With a 1.4 BOOSTERJET engine producing 230Nm of torque, and a total kerb weight that is 80kg less than its predecessor, the lighter and quicker Swift Sport has evolved into a genuine hot hatch that makes exhilarating sports driving a reality. The 1.4 BOOSTERJET petrol engine delivers high power with good fuel economy. The new turbocharger helps the engine produce impressive torque from low in the rev range, while the small displacement and direct fuel injection system optimises fuel consumption.

The new Swift Sport rests on the “HEARTECT” platform, a new-generation Suzuki platform that delivers enhanced fundamental vehicle performance through light weight and high rigidity. In addition to the “HEARTECT” platform and the lightweight, shock-absorbing “TECT” body, detailed optimisation of interior parts, seats and other components has resulted in a total kerb weight of just 970kg. To achieve short-stroke and nimble shifting, enhancements have been made to the same 6-speed manual transmission used in the previous Swift Sport. Actuating force has been tuned for improved shift smoothness and increased driver feedback, complemented by further engineering refinements to increase direct feel and rigidity. It will also come with advanced safety systems such as weaver control system, collision warning system, ABS and airbags, as well as adaptive cruise control and high beam assist.
