New Suzuki Swift Sport revealed in official images image

Originally launched back in 2006, the first generation of the Swift Sport, wearing the Suzuki badge on it, was a model that brought the perfume of a hot-hatch into the segment, and now a new generation of the popular Japanese car will be officially presented at the Frankfurt Motor Show in less than 24 hours, when the German event will open its gates.

Suzuki says that the new Swift Sport is powered by a 1.6 liter four-cylinder engine, delivering 135 horsepower at 6.900 rpm and 160 Nm of torque (118 lb-ft) at 4.400 rpm, mated to a six-speed manual gearbox.

The Japanese automaker also says that the new generation of the Swift Sport will handle better and will be more responsive thanks to struts with internal rebound springs and a redesigned rear suspension.

The new generation of the Swift Sport will be presented at Suzuki’s stand at the Frankfurt Motor Show and more details about it will come to light.
