PRACTICAL: New Suzuki Swift Sport five-door
Suzuki are fusing practicality and performance with the launch of a five-door Swift Sport.
Priced at £14,249, the new addition is just £500 more than the original three-door version, but with the same levels of tuning, steering and braking performance.
The M16A engine offers a maximum output of 100Kw (136PS) and maximum torque of 160Nm at an engine speed of 4,400rpm.
It manages a fuel economy of 44.1mpg and emissions of 147g/km, with a six-speed manual as standard.
A Suzuki spokesperson said: “Befitting its status as the performance flagship of the Swift model range, it reflects the pursuit of even better handling, driving performance, environmental compatibility and an uncompromising focus on quality.
“Overall, it offers a rewarding experience of Suzuki’s sporting DNA.”
Standard equipment in the Swift Sport includes air conditioning, fog lamps, push button start, cruise control, Bluetooth, HD Projector headlamps and rear privacy glass.
The vehicle is available in silky silver, boost blue pearl, cool white pearl and cosmic black colours.
UK Swift Sport sales are 1,200 units per annum, with around 450 predicted to be the five-door model.
