Suzuki shows off Swift Sport SZ-R special edition

Suzuki's Swift Sport is a car we like very much here at AOL Cars. With so much fun on offer for just £13,000, we can't rate it highly enough in fact, and we wouldn't change a thing.

Suzuki doesn't appear to agree, though – now launching a limited-run special edition, badged the SZ-R.

The SZ-R – which Suzuki promises will be "strictly limited to just 100 cars" – comes in black with a contrasting red roof, not unlike that of the Mini Cooper S JCW.

Sadly, exclusivity is about all that's been thrown in on top of the standard Sport's specification – despite the £500 price bump. Aside from a few red accents here and there (the roof, floor mats and gearknob) plus a uniquely numbered plaque on the door sills, you won't find much has changed.

Still, it's not badly equipped – you'll find Bluetooth, climate control, HID headlamps and so on as standard on the inside, along with rear privacy glass and 17-inch alloy wheels to keep up that sporty image.

There's also a handy keyless go system that lets you drive away without any faff, and cruise control to make motorway journeys that bit easier.

The Swift Sport's feisty 1.6-litre petrol engine remains too, providing 136bhp and whisking the Suzuki to 60mph in just under nine seconds. It'll do a not unreasonable 44.1mpg combined, too, while costing just £135 per year to tax.

Interested? It'll go on sale March 1, priced at £14,249, and you'd best be quick if you just can't resist that black and red colour scheme.
