Suzuki’s Swift Sport is already the performance flagship of the Swift model range and due to customer demand, Suzuki is introducing the five door model to provide further practicality and seating for five.
Suzuki launched the Swift Sport in a growing number of countries in 2012 and sales in the UK are 1,200 units per annum, of which around 450 units will be the five door model. Swift Sport volume accounts for 10% of the total for the Swift range.
The Swift Sport’s M16A engine offers power combined with low emissions. The engine has a variable intake system and an optimised intake VVT (Variable Valve Timing) for increased valve lift, maximum output is an impressive 136PS and maximum torque is 160Nm at an engine speed of 4,400 rpm enabling the driver to enjoy superb performance across the rev range.
The engine’s high output is combined with excellent fuel economy of 44.1mpg on the combined cycle with CO2 emissions of 147g/km. The Sport is fitted with a six-speed manual transmission as standard and has a bespoke exhaust system with twin tailpipes, one on each side of the rear diffuser.
