This is the Suzuki Swift Sport, which has been revealed at the Frankfurt motor show with an expected on-sale date early next year. It is powered by a 1.6 litre naturally-aspirated petrol engine linked to a six-speed manual gearbox, producing 134bhp at 4400rpm and 118lb-ft of torque. This is slightly more powerful than the existing 125 bhp 1.6L unit. Not only is the new model more powerful, it is greener as well. On the combined cycle, Suzuki claims the new Swift Sport will achieve 44.1mpg, whilst emitting 147g/km of CO2. These figures are better the previous car's 39.8mpg and 165g/km of CO2, helped by the extra forward gear.

The new Swift Sport is 3890mm long, 1695mm wide and 1510mm tall, with a wheelbase of 2430mm. It is 40mm longer than the standard Swift, but of the same width and height as the standard car. Suzuki revealed in a statement that the sportiest version of the Swift offers superior cornering stability and brisker, more responsive handling, thanks to struts with internal rebound springs and an exclusive rear-suspension design. Suzuki added that increased spring rates for the front and rear coil springs, and added rebound springs in the front struts significantly contribute to stability by providing greater roll stiffness.

On the exterior, styling changes include a larger front grille and more aggressive bodywork as well as 17-inch alloys, which are 1kg lighter than those found on its predecessor.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
