Frankfurt Motor Show 2017: Suzuki announces details of Swift Sport

The output of the unit, which is combined only with the six-speed manual transmission is 140 horsepower and 230 Nm of torque.

Visually the new Swift Sport gains a bespoke grille and bumper, a front lip spoiler, side skirts, a rear diffuser and a roof spoiler. The newcomer abandons the atmospheric 1.6L for a four-cylinder BoosterJet 1.4L turbo direct injection developing 140hp at 5,500 trs / min and 230Nm torque between 2,500 trs / min and 3,500 trs / min. Thanks to it being based on Suzuki's new "Heartect" platform, the new Swift Sport has a kerb weight of just 970kg.

The new Swift Sport is planned to be launched in Europe in the spring of 2018.NEW DELHI: Suzuki Motor Corporation made global premiere of new Swift Sport on 12 September 2017 at the 67th IAA Frankfurt Motor Show. Moreover, the 17-inch polished alloy wheels and dual exhausts complete the picture.

The Swift Sport joins the seemingly ever-expanding niche of hot hatchbacks with its own proposition - it's a city vehicle with a feisty appearance and maximum every-day utilization credentials.

The Swift Sport also features a new suspension setup and has 120mm of ground clearance which is 15mm less than the last Sport.

The new Swift Sport uses Monroe* front shock absorbers.

As for the rear, Suzuki focused on providing stability at high speeds, improving toe rigidity by 1.4 times compared to its predecessor, and camber rigidity is higher by a factor of almost three.

Beyond that, the new Swift is larger than its predecessor with a 20mm longer wheelbase and a 40mm wider wheel track, which should open up some interior space. The latter comes with new boost and oil temperature gauges to reflect the car's sporty persona. The chrome finished shift knob and sports alloy pedals complement the sports driving experience.

Life inside isn't that much different from a standard Swift, save for the generous application of red accents and a driver-oriented instrument panel.

While we know that the new Swift will debut at the Auto Expo 2018, Maruti has not confirmed whether the hot hatch version will come to India.
