New Swift Sport Debuted at Frankfurt Motor Show

New Swift Sport debuted at Frankfurt Motor Show

Suzuki Motor Corporation’s all-new Swift Sport has made its global debut during a press conference at the 67th IAA Frankfurt Motor Show on September 12.

The latest generation of the Swift Sport brings with it a myriad of changes which include a lower, wider stance, more aggressive styling, and a torque-to-weight ratio that catapults the Sport into true hot hatch territory.

Engineers have also bid adieu to the 1.6L naturally-aspirated motor in favour of the same 1.4L Boosterjet turbo engine seen in Vitara; a welcome addition to an increasingly powerful line-up with turbo now available in five models across the range. That, coupled with compact dimensions and a kerb weight that’s sub one-tonne should be music to the ears of sports-minded drivers.

Swift Sport chief engineer Mr Masao Kobori said, “We know that our customers value a dynamic driving experience above everything else, so for the third-generation Swift Sport our development concept was Ultimate Driving Excitement.”

Mr Kobori continued, “It’s lighter, sharper, and quicker. It’s more aggressive and emotive, but we’ve also refined the elements that make it practical to use every day—the clutch feel, the manual transmission shift throw, the seats and steering wheel. Everything that puts the driver at the heart of the experience.”

Whilst power and appearance were obvious key considerations, so too were safety and technology with the Sport featuring a Bluetooth®-compatible Smartphone Linkage

Display Audio Display unit with a multimedia 7-inch touchscreen and sat nav together with advanced safety including lane departure warning, weaving alert, adaptive cruise and high beam assist.

Release date, spec details and pricing information for the Australian market is yet to be announced.
