All new Suzuki Swift Sport to make Frankfurt debut

The Sport version of the new Suzuki Swift will be making its debut at the upcoming Frankfurt motor show in September.

The new car will feature a 1.6-litre petrol engine that has been specially developed for the Sport, according to Suzuki, which will come with 132bhp – a boost over the old car's 123bhp.
There are no details on the speed of the new car just yet, but expect the increase in power to result in a slight improvement over the outgoing Sport's 8.9 0-62mph time.

This engine is combined with a new six-speed manual gearbox, which Suzuki claims will offer "performance that is both exciting and environmentally responsible" although final figures are yet to be computed.

The handling has been worked on with the inclusion of an exclusive rear suspension design and internal rebound springs.

The visual changes include a rear spoiler, and a larger front grille than the non-Sport version of the new Swift. The alterations result in a car that is 40mm longer than the standard model, although the height and width remain unchanged.
