Suzuki Swift Sport revealed before Frankfurt

25.07.2017

Although only expected to make its world debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, Suzuki has released the first official image of the new Swift Sport.

Closely resembling the renderings released earlier this month, the latest snaps sees the Swift receiving a restyled front end highlighted by a black honeycomb grille, black bumper and door sills extensions, flared wheel arches, new alloy wheels and a slightly lowered ride height.

As per previous reports, the Sport is also expected to undercut the outgoing model in terms of weight, with a rumoured dry mass reportedly as low as 870 kg.

While unconfirmed, various reports suggest the Sport will drop the normally aspirated 1.6-litre engine for a 1.4-litre turbo derived from the European market Vitara S, lifting power from 100 kW to 103 kW and torque from 160 Nm to 220 Nm. A six-speed automatic gearbox is reportedly set to join the six-speed manual for the first time.

More details are likely to emerge in the coming months.
