Home Car News Hybrid power: Suzuki Swift...

“The Swift Sport has never been a hot hatch. The Swift Sport is a car to have fun in at good speeds, but safely and without getting into trouble.”

The front-wheel-drive model achieves WLTP-certified CO2 emissions of 127g/km and promises fuel economy of 50.1mpg, a 6% improvement over the outgoing model.

It retains the lightweight Heartect platform used on the outgoing car, giving it a kerb weight of 1025kg.

Inside, the new Sport has privacy glass, a DAB radio and Bluetooth fitted as standard, as well as a rear-view camera, dual-sensor brake support and rear parking sensors.

Adaptive cruise control and LED headlights are now available as standard, an addition over the previous model. The Swift Sport rides on 17in alloy wheels.

Suzuki has not yet released pricing details for the new Swift Sport but said there will be a small increase over the £17,999 starting price of the previous version due to new technology.
