2018 Suzuki Swift Sport Out Now!
Months after it revealed the next-gen Suzuki Swift Hatchback and Sedan, now Suzuki has taken the covers off the hot-hatch offering, its 2018 Suzuki Swift Sport. The car was unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show this year.
The 2018 Suzuki Swift Sport has been given a sporty yet aggressive styling that helps improve aerodynamics and also looks good. The front bumper gets a new design for its honeycomb grille.
One of the most prominent features at the car’s sides are the 17-inch alloy wheels. For enhancing the sportiness of the car, there’s a detailed diffuser at the car’s back as well as dual exhaust tips. There’s even a roof-mounted spoiler which helps the car get a much better grade in aero-science.
The car’s body has been given a Champion Yellow shade, which has been reserved solely for the Sport. All other colours that are a part of the Swift palette will be offered as well.
The latest Swift Sport has been built on a new platform, which helps save weight. The 2018 Suzuki Swift Sport has even cut down 80 kg weight.
However, what brings the max excitement is what’s under the hood. The old naturally aspirated 1.6-liter petrol engine has made way for a new 1.4-litre turbo unit. Using a six-speed manual transmission, the car churns out 138 Horsepower as well as 230 Nm.
The interior of the car has got a pair semi-bucket seats along with red stitching that’s further found on other surfaces in the car. There’s a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system which supports MirrorLink, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Since the redesigned regular Swift has been put on sale in the UAE, so it’s likely that Sport shows up next year.
