Suzuki GB has announced the new 2012 Swift Sport with a price of £13,500. With UK sales of 6000 since launch in May 2006, the UK remains an important market.
Revealed in Frankfurt this past September, the supermini features a 1.6-liter engine producing 134 bhp (100 kW / 136 PS) and 160 Nm (118 lb-ft) of torque. Thanks to a variable air intake and variable valve timing the Swift Sport which uses the same engine as its predecessor now makes 13 PS (10 kW) more. Equipped with a six speed manual transmission 0-62 mph takes 8.7 seconds with a maximum speed of 121 mph. Combined fuel consumption is 44.1 mpg while emissions are 147g/km.
Creature comforts include auto air conditioning, fog lamps, push button start, cruise control, Bluetooth connectivity, HID Projector headlamps with headlamp wash and rear privacy glass.
As the performance flagship of the Swift model range, sporting attributes include an aerodynamic body kit, upgraded sport tuned suspension, 17-inch wheels with 45-series low profile tires and sport seats.
