In terms of looks, the updated model looks quite similar to its regular counterpart
In terms of looks, the updated model looks quite similar to its regular counterpart, but the hatchback is now 50mm longer and 15mm lower. The illumination duties are done by LED signature lighting at the front and rear. It continues to get a wide blacked-out grille up front, 16-inch dual-tone alloy wheels, blacked-out pillars and hidden rear door handle. Inside, the car gets a touchscreen infotainment system with connectivity features, alloy pedals, semi-digital instrument console, steering mounted controls and much more. Moreover, the red accent on the centre console, door panels and seats enhances the sporty quotient of the car.
Mr Masao Korbi, Chief Engineer of Suzuki Swift Sport said, “We know that our customers value a dynamic driving experience above everything else, so for the third-generation Swift Sport our development concept was “ultimate driving excitement”. It’s lighter, sharper, quicker. It’s more aggressive and emotive, but we’ve also refined the elements that make it practical to use every day especially the clutch feel, the manual transmission shift throw, the seats and steering wheel. Everything that puts the driver at the heart of the experience.”
The addition of 48V mild-hybrid system is to enhance the fuel-efficiency and engine response
Mechanically, the hatchback derives power from the same K14D Boosterjet turbo-petrol motor paired with a new 48V mild-hybrid system. The engine produces a combined power and torque output of 140 hp and 235 Nm. Transmission duties are done by a 6-speed MT, the gearbox transmits power to the front wheels. The addition of a 48V mild-hybrid system will enhance the fuel-efficiency and engine response. The hatchback can sprint from 0 to 100 kmph in just 8.1 seconds and can achieve a top-speed of 210 kmph.
