Sport zips in to lead Swift model range

The Sport will be the flagship of the Swift range.

SUZUKI is unveiling its new Swift Sport at this month’s Frankfurt Motor Show.
The Sport is the performance model in the range and offers higher levels of engine tuning, steering and braking. Sporty performance with everyday practicality have won many fans.
Building on its predecessors, the Sport continues the Japanese carmaker’s to develop the Swift range, which was first unveiled last Autumn.
As befits its flagship role, drivers can expect better handing, superior performance, better environmental credentials and quality build.
UK customers can expect the Sport in showrooms early next year.
The car has a more sporting look and appears to hug the ground.
Aerodynamic changes control the airflow, suppress lift and give the car a lower visual centre of gravity. To improve night driving, new high-intensity headlamps are fitted.
Inside, the cabin has a high-quality look with new sport seats in an exclusive fabric together with a five-dial easy to read meter cluster.
Suzuki has tweaked the chassis to give exceptional balance and stability and has made a string of alterations to the suspension.
The  Sport’s M16A engine has been given a variable intake system, improved intake VVT and increased valve lift, which means the power is up fom 92kW to 100kW. This gives drivers better performance across the rev range. The engine’s high output is combined with improved fuel economy; and CO2 emissions are down from 165g/km to 147g/km. A revised exhaust system gives the car a sportier note.
