Suzuki unveiled the high-performance Sport version of the lovely Swift at 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show.

Design-wise the Swift Sport features a larger front grille, distinctive finned fog lamp bezels, a subtle aero kit and high-intensity discharge headlamps with a metallic-grey coating. Inside the cabin you get new design sport seats in an exclusive fabric together with a five-dial meter cluster. It is more functional than pretty.

The car also comes with standard 17-inch aluminium-alloy wheels with 195/45R17 tires and uprated suspension.

The new Swift Sport’s M16A engine is based on that of the previous model. Thanks to the addition of a variable intake system, optimisation of the intake VVT and increased valve lift, maximum output is up from 92kW in the previous Swift Sport to an impressive 100kW with the new model. Maximum torque is up from 148Nm to 160Nm. That power combined with compact size and low eight of the car means great driving fun.
