Suzuki Swift Sport for 2012
10th August, 2011
The new generation Suzuki Swift Sport will make its world
debut at the 64th Frankfurt Motor Show (IAA), which will be held in Frankfurt, Germany, from 15th to 25th
The new Swift Sport is a refined sport compact resulting from the first full model change since the
launch of the original Swift Sport in 2006. It has a more aggressive and dignified exterior look thanks
to a low-slung form that gives a sense of stability and tension, and a big front grille that evokes a
sporty performance feel. The cabin combines essential sportiness with a high-quality look and feel, and
design features that heighten excitement about the driving experience.
Higher power and lower fuel consumption are delivered by the 1.6-litre M16A engine, which Suzuki
developed exclusively for the Swift Sport. The engine is matched to a specially developed six-speed
manual transmission, resulting in performance that is both exciting and environmentally responsible. The
new Suzuki Swift Sport offers superior cornering stability and brisker, more responsive handling thanks
to struts with internal rebound springs and an exclusive rear-suspension design.
High levels of safety are assured by features such as a light, stiff, impact-absorbing body, seven
airbags (including curtain airbags and a driver’s knee airbag); and ESP® (Electronic Stability
