2012 Suzuki Swift Sport Gets Previewed

2012 Suzuki Swift Sport

The 2012 Suzuki Swift Sport will make its official debut next month during the Frankfurt Motor Show but the automaker decided to reveal the first official photo of the car, along with some juicy details. The car looks just about the same as the concept we saw back in March at the 81st edition of the Geneva Motor Show which can only be a good thing.

The vehicle will be powered by a 1.6-liter M16A engine that was developed especially for this model. This 4-cylinder power plant generates 134 hp (136 PS / 100 kW) and has a peak torque of 118 lb.-ft (160 Nm). The engine will be linked to a 6-speed manual transmission.

The company stated that the Swift Sport will have “more responsive handling” thanks to the fact that it is going to feature an all-new rear-suspension design as well as internal rebound springs in the struts. Some of the other goodies that we should expect include the ESP, seven airbags and an impact-absorbing body.

Suzuki Swift Sport Under Development?

Suzuki Swift S Concept

If we were to believe a recent report that surfaced the Internet a few days ago, Suzuki will be rolling out the Swift Sport model at the beginning of next year. We don’t have many details to provide but it seems that the automaker’s Russian subsidiary has issued a press release in which it is mentioned that the car is going to be a 3-door hatchback designed after the S-Concept that was revealed at the 81st edition of the Geneva Motor Show.

If this report turns out to be true, expect an official debut of the Suzuki Swift Sport at the Tokyo Motor Show. We’ll keep you posted.

This 4-cylinder turbocharged power unit develops 74 hp and emits only 109 g/km of CO2, which is 9% less in comparison to the previous diesel engine that equipped the old Swift version.

Fuel consumption has also been improved by 8%, which means that the Swift can do 67.3 mpg (UK) combined and has a driving range of up to 500 miles. With this Euro 5 compliant engine, the car can do the 0-60 mph sprint in 12.7 seconds, on its way to a top speed of 103 mph.

Suzuki Swift S Concept Announced

Suzuki Swift S Concept

I’ve always liked the Suzuki Swift and I’m very eager to see the S Concept which will be unveiled next month at the Geneva auto show. Suzuki didn’t reveal any addition details about this car but most likely it will be based upon the latest generation of the model. Probably, it will have a sportier look which will be the foundation for an “S” version of the production model.

As far as the design is concerned, the Suzuki Swift S Concept shown in this picture has wide wheel arches, a more attractive and aggressive front bumper and a roof spoiler which isn’t very appealing, maybe it will look better on the real car although I doubt it.

At Geneva, the Japanese automaker will also be bringing other models, like the SX4, Jimmy, Kizashi, Grand Vitara, Alto and the funky Splash. We’ll let you know what’s what at the Suzuki stand.
