New Swift Sport confirmed for Australia

New Swift Sport Confirmed For Australia

Following the official reveal of the all new Swift Sport at the Frankfurt Motor Show last month, Suzuki Australia has confirmed Aussies will get their first taste of the next-gen model in the first quarter of 2018.

Music to the ears of many, the new Swift Sport will be stocked with a 1.4L Boosterjet turbo engine producing 230Nm of torque – 70Nm more than the current version - with the kerb weight now sub one-tonne, coming in at 970kgs. And the transmission? Up for grabs in either six-speed auto or manual.

Suzuki Motor Corporation Chief Engineer Mr. Masao Kobori stated, “It’s lighter, sharper, and quicker. It’s more aggressive and emotive, but we’ve also refined the elements that make it practical to use every day.”

Mr. Kobori continued, “With the third generation we’ve moved the game on to the next level as a genuine hot hatch. And I’m confident that when you drive it you’re going to go ‘WOW!’.”

The new golden child of the Swift clan will also feature the long list of advanced tech and safety we’ve become accustomed to with Suzuki’s recent model offerings, along with revamped styling, a suite of sporty accents, and an even more stimulating driver experience.

Michael Pachota, Suzuki Australia General Manager Automobiles said, “Similar to the legend status of our famed Swift GTi, Sport has developed a global cult following with the first two generations. Venturing down the path of trying to top that is no easy task but that is exactly what we’ve done with the all new Swift Sport. The level of performance, tech, safety, and style is unparalleled and we are counting down the weeks until it hits our shores.”

Full spec and pricing details for Australia will be the subject of a future announcement.
