The all-new Swift Sport had its global premiere at the Frankfurt Motor Show today. The third-generation Swift Sport features a lower, wider stance, more aggressive styling, and a torque-to-weight ratio that propels the Swift Sport into genuine hot hatch territory. “We know that our customers value a dynamic driving experience above everything else,” says Swift Sport chief engineer Masao Kobori, “so we’ve made the new Swift Sport lighter, faster and more stimulating in every way.”
New Swift Sport highlights
Hot hatch performance Strong visual presence Stimulating driver experience
Kerb weight is down 80kg to only 970kg, maximum torque is up 70N⋅m to 230N⋅m, and the Swift Sport’s acclaimed handling is more responsive than ever. The result is genuine hot hatch performance that takes the Swift Sport to the next level. The Swift Sport’s athletic stance and performance credentials are enhanced by an exclusive front grille and bumper, and aerodynamic front-lip spoiler, side skirts, rear diffuser and roof-end spoiler. 17-inch polished alloy wheels and dual exhausts complete the picture.
The new interior stimulates the driver’s senses. Accent panels, colour-contrasted gauges and precision dials provide visual impact, while semi-bucket seats and high-quality textures keep the driver firmly in control of the fun.
Swift Sport: hot hatch performance
With a 1.4 BOOSTERJET engine producing 230N⋅m of torque, and a total kerb weight that is 80kg less than its predecessor, the lighter and quicker Swift Sport has evolved into a genuine hot hatch that makes exhilarating sports driving a reality.
Swift Sport: stimulating driver experience
The new Swift Sport creates an immersive, interactive sports driving environment, starting with red interior accents and a driver-oriented instrument panel that immediately stirs the driver’s imagination. The main gauges pop with contrasting colours, and new boost and oil temperature gauges enhance the sports driving experience. Precision-crafted, high-quality textures and materials are used throughout the cockpit, including in the Swift Sport’s semi-bucket shape front seats that let the driver and passenger share the sports driving sensation.
