Suzuki Swift Sport rendered before rumoured Frankfurt debut

10.07.2017

Revealed at the Geneva Motor Show in March and expected to debut in South Africa later this year, a Japanese website has released a series of grainy renderings depicting the upcoming Suzuki Swift Sport.

According to a weekend article by kurumagt.com, the new Sport will likely retain the same dimensions as the standard Swift, but gain a more aggressive appearance courtesy of a model specific bodykit, black alloy wheels, flared wheel arches, boot spoiler and a black honeycomb grille split by a black bar.

No interior images were released but expect the Sport to feature stitched sport seats, different trim, sports steering wheel and aluminium pedals. As well as boasting concealed rear door handles like the normal Swift, the Sport is also expected to undercut the outgoing model in terms of weight with a claimed dry weight up to 870 kg, down from 1 045 kg.

The biggest change will however come underneath the bonnet with a switch from the current normally aspirated 100 kW 1.6-litre engine, to a 1.4-litre BoosterJet turbo developing 103 kW again linked to a short-throw six-speed manual gearbox. While expected to send its power to the front wheels only, the Sport will also become available with a automatic 'box for the first time, likely utilising torque converter setup instead of a CVT as the rest of the range.

Although yet to be confirmed, the Swift Sport is slated to make its official world debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September.
