The 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show is just a few months away and one of the cars that we are dying to see is the new Swift Sport. It’s the third generation for the sporty hatchback and it will go on sale once the car debuts at the show. But now, ahead of that occasion, its brochure has already surfaced on the internet.
The leaked document indicates that the Swift Sport will be offered in six colours and will get some fancy external design elements like the sporty bumpers, black wheels, projector head lamps and a chrome tipped exhaust. Inside, the dials of the Swift have been retained, but now with a red backlight as well as red insert for the all-black dashboard and cabin. It gets the same trip computer found in the India spec Baleno and Ignis models. There has been no official word on the engine option, but we know that it is a 1.4-litre turbocharged unit that is expected to produce around 150bhp and over 200Nm of torque going to the front through either a six-speed MT or a CVT.
In the present scenario, it is unlikely that the Swift Sport is coming to India as it will have a pricing similar to a premium D-segment sedan or SUV, putting it well out of the comfort zone that Maruti Suzuki has for its smaller models. It is never too late to hope though and if nothing else, we know that Maruti Suzuki will bring the Swift Sport as its show stopper for Delhi 2018.
