Suzuki will present its new version of the popular hatch, Swift Sport, at this year’s Frankfurt Auto Show in September.
Even though the car wasn’t officially launched, details about its performance, as well as pictures of it, have been made public.
The new generation of the Suzuki Swift Sport is powered by a conventionally aspirated 1.6 liter four-cylinder engine, which was upgraded from 123 to 134 BHP at 6.900 rpm and has a maximum torque of 118 lb-ft at 4.400 rpm, compared to the 109 lb-ft at 4.800 rpm of the previous model.
The 1586cc unit of the Swift Sport will be connected to a six-speed manual transmission and the new model will come in standard with seven airbags (including curtain and driver’s knee) and ESP.
“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 […] The Swift has a cabin that combines essential sportiness with a high-quality look and feel plus design features that heighten excitement about the driving experience”, as it is written in a Suzuki press statement.
According to the manufacturer the new Swift is 40 mm longer than the standard version, while the width and height remained the same.
