Suzuki Swift Sport gets 5 doors & costs £14,249Wed, 10 Jul 2013
The new Suzuki Swift Sport 5-door (pictured) offers a more practical option to the Sport
The Suzuki Swift Sport arrived in the UK at the end of 2011, and although it wasn’t exactly the sort of hot hatch that would make a Fiesta ST quake in its boots it did up the fun factor from Suziki’s more than decent Swift. In fact, the 3-door Swift Sport did a bit more than up the fun factor, it got Australia’s advertising authorities up in arms about its ‘suggestive’ advertising and got itself banned from Ozzie TV for being too ‘hot’. Which probably didn’t do sales any harm at all.
Now Suzuki has decided to widen the appeal of the Swift Sport by adding a five-door version to the range – which will make life a bit easier for families with children who still want to have fun behind the wheel – but nothing much else changes.
That means 134bhp from its 1.6 litre petrol engine (0-62mph in 8.7 seconds and 44mpg), six-speed manual ‘box, a bit of an aero package to make it look meaner than the average Swift, gloss black grill and roof spoiler, sorted suspension and a six-speed manual ‘box.
Standard kit includes Climate, fogs, Cruise, Bluetooth, HD projector headlights, privacy glass, push button start and the addition of a new colour option - Boost Blue metallic.
The new Suzuki Swift Sport 5-door is now on sale.
