The new Suzuki Swift Sport marks the welcome return of a formula many had left behind - modest power, fun handling, and light weight - mixed in with a few updates to make it a better fit for the modern, overly-congested world.
The new third-generation Suzuki Swift Sport has been unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show today, picking up where the well-regarded second generation model left off.
The Suzuki Swift will gain a new Dualjet 1.2-litre engine next year that is said to improve economy by 16% while also reducing CO2 emissions below the magic 100 g/km, making the Swift free of road tax.
The Suzuki Swift has received a few tweaks for the 2015 model year, with LED daytime running lights and front fog lights now included across the range.
Launched in its current form in 2012, the Suzuki Swift Sport has earnt respect among many for capturing some of the mojo that made the Mini popular. Last year, it gained the option of five doors, but have Suzuki managed to adapt the body-shell without sacrificing the Swift’s cheeky character?
