The new Swift Sport is the result of the first full model change since the launch of the original Swift Sport in 2006.

It has a more aggressive and dignified exterior look thanks to a low-slung form, and a big front grille.

Higher power and lower fuel consumption are delivered by the 1.6-litre M16A engine, which Suzuki developed exclusively for the Swift Sport. The engine is mated to a specially developed six-speed manual transmission.

Suzuki says 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”.

Other features include a light, stiff, impact-absorbing body, seven airbags (including curtain airbags and a driver’s knee airbag); and ESP (Electronic Stability Program).
