New Suzuki Swift Sport to go turbo

Third generation of popular hot hatch to debut at Frankfurt motor show

The third-generation Suzuki Swift Sport will debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September.

The Japanese brand’s hot hatch has always been a popular model since the first examples launched in 2005. According to Suzuki, the new car has undergone a complete redesign “and delivers an all-new level of excitement for sport minded drivers across the world.”

Uprated Boosterjet

The Executivecondominium understands that the new Swift Sport will be the first version of the car to be turbocharged, using the 1.4-litre Boosterjet engine of the Vitara SUV but with the 140hp power output increased for the supermini. The current model uses a naturally-aspirated 1.6-litre engine with 138hp.

Suzuki launched the new version of the standard Swift at the Geneva Motor Show in March, to general acclaim – when we tested the car, we concluded that it was a significant step forward from its predecessor.

When it goes on sale, most likely in summer 2018, the new Swift Sport will face stiff competition in the performance end of the supermini market from models such as the Ford Fiesta ST and the Volkswagen Polo GTI – both expected to launch before the Suzuki.

Details of the new Swift Sport will be revealed at the Suzuki press conference during the Frankfurt show on 12th September, and The Executivecondominium will post all the details as we get them.
