New Swift Sport : An Evolution of the Swift Series’ Sporty Flagship​



The Swift Sport offers higher levels of running, turning, and stopping performance than the standard Swift on which it’s based; it’s the performance flagship of the Swift series. It went into production in Japan in 2005 and in Hungary in 2006. The experience it gives during sporty driving and everyday motoring have earned its devoted fans in around 40 countries and territories around the world. The new Swift Sport has the same DNA as its predecessor but reflects the concept of developing a refined sport compact from the new Swift, which Suzuki launched in 2010. Befitting its status as the new performance flagship of the Swift series, it reflects the pursuit of even better handling, driving performance, and environmental compatibility and an uncompromising focus on quality. It offers an incomparably rewarding experience of Suzuki’s sporty DNA.


 

Exteriors  -   An Aggressive and Dignified Design​

​​


The new Swift Sport’s exterior design reflects an evolution toward an aggressive and dignified look. A ground-hugging form gives a sense of stability and tension. A big front grille evokes high performance and is flanked by big, distinctive finned fog-lamp bezels for a more aggressive, dignified character. Aero parts that are exclusive to the new Swift Sport control airflow, suppress lift, and help to give the car a low visual center of gravity. Newly developed high-intensity discharge headlamps with a metallic-grey coating and newly developed rear combination lamps with a cylindrical design heighten the dynamism expressed by the exterior design.​​

 
Interiors -  Sporty and  Refined​
 

 

Sporty, exclusive design features in the new Swift Sport’s cabin heighten driving pleasure, and a high-quality interior look and feel generates pleasure of ownership. A five-dial meter cluster combines easy legibility with an uncluttered look. Soft leather on the steering wheel allows a natural-feeling grip for easy operation and a sense of refinement. And the front seats not only offer greater support but also have exclusive fabrics and stitching that heighten excitement about the driving experience.


 

Performance  -  Better Driving and Environmental Performance​


 

The new Swift Sport’s M16A engine is based on that of the previous model. Thanks to addition of a variable intake system, optimization of the intake VVT, and increased valve lift, maximum output is up from 92kW with the previous Swift Sport to a near-class-topping 100kW* with the new model; and maximum torque is up from 148N•m to 160N•m. As a result, the driver enjoys great-feeling performance across the rev range. The engine’s high output is combined with great fuel economy; CO2 emissions are down from 165g/km to 147g/km (about 9%). Plus, a revised muffler structure yields a sportier exhaust note..​

 


 

Safety  -  Reasons to be confident

​  

The new Swift Sport represents an evolution in terms of safety. Comprehensive safety technologies mean it offers the same control and peace of mind as the new Swift, which earned a five-star rating in the European New Car Assessment Programme.For passive safety, the body is based on Suzuki’s Total Effective Control Technology, which ensures that it efficiently absorbs and disperses impact forces. Extensive use of high-tensile steel and the benefits of computerized structural analysis keep the body light while promoting safety. There are six airbags (including side and curtain airbags), and the pillars incorporate shock-absorbing materials that soften any contact with occupants’ heads.

Suzuki took a multifaceted approach to achieving higher levels of active safety. As a result, an ESP and an antilock braking system with electronic braking-force distribution are standard equipment. ESP®* Suzuki took a multifaceted approach to achieving higher levels of active safety. As a result, new Swift Sport has an ESP®* (Electronic Stability Program) to help maintain greater stability and controllability on diverse road surfaces..
