Suzuki Swift Sport has served as a base for some best-looking performance cars and this one from Japan is another example of a sporty low car with breathtaking visual enhancements. The car has been slammed to the maximum level as space between the wheel arches and tyres is next to zero on the car. The five-spoke wheels are huge in comparison to the car’s profile and believe it or not, the lowest possible profile of the tyres can be seen on the modified car.

Kuhl Racing, the brand behind this extensive modification, has used a quad exhaust setup for the car that sits within a custom-built rear bumper. The upper section stays in the same pearl white shade as the regular car while the lower black section creates a splitter-style feel for the car. The huge wing on the top creates an enormous amount of downforce and could help the modified Suzuki Swift Sport achieve better results on the track. The front of the car comes with slightly covered headlights for an aggressive front fascia.

The entire body is covered under a sporty kit as side comes with a complete skirting kit that leaves no ground clearance on offer for the car. The Japan-specific modified Swift could have ended its glory in India as large speed breakers would have pushed the tyre against the wall with ease. Slammed cars are very common in many countries while in India, the ban on modified vehicles has resulted in a drop in the number of customized cars and bikes in the country.

The Swift Sport is powerful enough to generate 140 HP of power and 230 Nm of torque from its 1.4L petrol engine. The most happening car of all time has not been launched in India yet, and the chances of its launch are all-time low as Maruti Suzuki uses a smaller 1.0L BoosterJet petrol engine on its performance-spec hatchbacks in India.

Toyota dealerships in Kenya are now selling Suzuki models along with their own products, taking the Suzuki-Toyota partnership to the next level in the countries where the action is possible. Suzuki and Toyota entered a joint venture where the brands will share architecture and product components to cut on the total cost of car development. The joint operations in India will focus on sharing platform between Baleno and an unnamed hatchback from Toyota. In Kenya, the product sharing seems like a smaller effect as Suzuki by Toyota Kenya counter in their dealership is displaying Jimny, Gypsy, Ciaz, Vitara (the bigger one) and even Alto for the buyers.

Toyota Dealerships Starts Selling Suzuki Cars in Kenya

The pricing for Kenya is quite high in comparison to the Indian pricing for almost all the products, most probably due to the high amount of their local taxation. The rebadging plan seems effective for brands like India where buyers will not consider watching the merger of two indirect rivals. Here, the vast footprint of Maruti Suzuki will benefit Toyota cars only while a number of buyers choosing a Suzuki car by visiting the nearest Toyota dealership will be next to zero. As the majority of Maruti Suzuki models sold here are below INR 10 lakh, the trend is opposite for Toyota as their majority of models sold fall in the price bracket of INR 15-30 lakh.

Even the Ciaz-rivalling Toyota Yaris has failed to impress buyers with sales figure less than 500 units in every month. Dubai-based firm CMC was earlier the only distributor for Suzuki cars in Kenya and now, the Toyota partnership may end their exclusive status regarding the brand in the country. The most affordable model from Suzuki, Alto 800, costs approx INR 6.10 lakh (direct conversion into the Indian currency) in Kenya. The retail lineup consists of the much-debated Jimny and Vitara GL in their market.

Suzuki Swift Sport Yellow Rev Concept was recently unveiled for the first time at 2019 Tokyo Auto Salon. The concept car is finished in High Chroma Yellow Pearl colour, using contrast Gloss Black elements on all primary parts. The roof and first two pillars are seen in gloss black shade while the third pillar uses Yellow shade on the lower side and Black on top of it. The feel of a floating roof remains uninterrupted on the sporty model. Being a concept, the complete tinting of windows, including the front was possible on Swift Sport Yellow Rev. The sides flaunt multiple spoke alloy wheels along with the white/grey sporty stripe placed on the front door.

The headlights on the Yellow Rev Concept is different in comparison to the regular version, getting stretched upper section to bring the expressions of anger into the car. The bumper comes with a dedicated fog lamp section and stays the same as the regular Sport variant. The interior of the Yellow Rev Concept is expected to flaunt yellow contrast stitching to the black theme, with bucket seats and familiar inserts in the dashboard. The car comes with six airbags and a long list of safety features that are missing from the Indian version.

The powerful 1.4L, turbocharged engine under the bonnet is good for 140 HP of maximum power and 230 Nm of torque. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox. On the other hand, the version available in India is powered by a 1.2L, 83 HP petrol engine. Those looking for efficiency can go for the diesel version with 75 HP of maximum power. The engine details for the Swift Sport Yellow Rev Concept were not revealed yet while expecting a boost in power is unlikely to happen.

Kuhl Racing has modified a Suzuki Swift Sport and it looks quite amazing. Everyone knows that when it comes to performance and looks, the Swift Sport leaves the vanilla Swift leagues behind. Kuhl Racing is a Japan-based tuner and they are the pioneers when it comes to adding complete aero kits to the hot hatchback.

Just one glance at the modified Suzuki Swift Sport and you will notice quite a lot of things. Right at the front, there is a bolder bumper and the splitter with winglets on the edges have grown sharper as well. Body-colored eyebrows can be found on the headlamps as well, giving the Swift Sport a sportier and sinister look. From the sides, the first thing that will grab your attention will be the prominent skirts and the lowered ride height for a sportier look. Even the original wheels and tires have been replaced for custom ones that are shod with wider rubber.

Coming to the back, the modified Suzuki Swift Sport features an updated bumper along with a massive rear diffuser. Another customization which has received quite a lot of applause is the faux housing for the dual exhaust pipes. All across the body of the car, the logos of Suzuki have been replaced for the ones of Kuhl Racing. When it comes to the interior, the customizer has not touched a thing and has preserved the original one. In terms of the mechanical upgrades, the only changes made are the addition of the sports exhaust and the lowering of the suspension of the car.

The modified Suzuki Swift Sport continues to feature the 1.4-liter Boosterjet engine producing 140 hp of maximum power and 230 Nm of peak torque. The transmission also remains the same, the six speed manual continuing to handle the drivetrain and sending power to the front wheels. The car can accelerate from rest to 100 kmph in just 8.1 seconds and the company claims that the top speed on the hot hatch is 210 kmph.

A recent report in the automotive industry claims that Maruti has officially confirmed that Suzuki Swift Sport will not launch in India. Using the lightweight Heartect platform, Suzuki has made the car even more powerful with 1.4L, turbocharged petrol engine producing 140 HP of maximum power. This motor is much more responsive than the old generation’s 1.6L, naturally aspirated petrol unit. The new architecture makes it about 100 kg lighter while small but turbocharged engine further takes care for its overall performance and efficiency. The report of Swift Sport skipping India is truly heartbreaking.

Impressive performance comes packed alongside a manual gearbox, improved body control, sharp handling and much lower body weight. Indian launch for the standard new Swift took place at 2018 Auto Expo. Fans were expecting a launch through their newly revised Arena outlets. The bigger 1.4L motor made it (temporarily) a great competitor to India spec Abarth Punto and Volkswagen GT TSI. Baleno RS was the first ever Maruti Suzuki car to get a turbocharged petrol engine and getting more from the manufacturer will improve the presence of Maruti in performance car segment.

Suzuki Swift Sport was expected to get a price quote of around INR 10-11 lakh. Maruti’s high amount of localization for other cars was not even enough to turn this dream into reality. The high 220 Nm of torque would have helped the car propel faster than any other available car of this segment. The engine of 2018 Swift Sport is mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox. Even the Abarth Punto produce 212 Nm, that too pushing much more than Suzuki Swift Sport in terms of overall weight. Maruti Swift is one of the highest selling cars of India and getting the Sports variant could have further helped Maruti cater different type of customers.

Suzuki’s all-around favourite hatchback Swift have been able to set plenty of records across the world, justifying its crazy fan base. The innovations to the hatchback are not going to stop anytime soon since the limited-run Suzuki Swift Sport BeeRacing was introduced in Europe earlier this year and now Australia becomes the first to get its limited edition Suzuki Swift Sport Red Devil.

The hatchback has received a plethora of cosmetic advancements and judging from the images, it looks quite sharp. The dealerships will get the limited edition model in the coming month and they are only limited to 100 units. Suzuki Swift Sport Red Devil will be available at a price tag of AUD 29,156 (INR 14.78 Lakh) with the standard 6-speed manual transmission and AUD 31,156 (INR 15.81 Lakh) with automatic transmission.

The car remains mechanically same as compared to the Swift Sport Edition. It is powered by K14C 1.4-litre Boosterjet, turbocharged, four-cylinder, petrol engine that produces a maximum power of 103 kW (140 PS) at 5,500 rpm and an utmost torque of 230 Nm of torque at 2,500-3,000 rpm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed manual as well as automatic transmission. It is known to reach a top speed of 100 kmph in just 7.39 seconds with its manual transmission.

The Burning Red colour of the car speak volumes for its edgy exterior and the unique carbon styled decals on the bonnet, bumper, doors and C-pillars looks extravagant. The all-new Suzuki Swift Sport Red Devil doesn’t get much changes in the interior. As per the rumors, Maruti is also planning to launch the all-new Swift Sport hatchback in India by the end of this year or early next year. After the official launch, Maruti Suzuki might also launch the BeeRacing and Red Devil limited editions in India.

Suzuki Swift Sport Bee Racing has been launched in Italy for 18,000 Euros (INR 14.36 lakh approx). The model is based on Suzuki Sport and will be available online exclusively. Pre=-bookings are open till April 18, 2018. The car comes painted in Champion Yellow and Dubai Black Metallic shade.

Contrast racing stripes can be seen running all across the body from bonnet to the rear bumper. Apart from these changes, everything else remains the same as stock Swift Sport. Buyers will love to own those 17-inch dual tone alloy wheels, impressive side skirts and dual exhaust outlets.

On the inside, Suzuki offer semi-bucket style seats and sport aluminum pedals. Buyers also get red stitching and lava red component inserts for better overall feel. The car is powered by a 1.4L, four cylinder Boosterjet engine producing 140 HP of power and 230 Nm of maximum torque.

This makes it quite more powerful than any other Swift variant on offer worldwide. Top speed is 210 kmph while 0-100 kmph comes in just 8.1 seconds. The engine is offered with a 6-speed manual gearbox. Red highlights of this car perfectly syncs with the color available inside the console of Swift Sport.

India spec Swift is powered by two different engine options while chances of Sport variant to launch here are almost negligible. Baleno was the first car from Maruti to bring turbocharged petrol engine on offer but unfortunately, it never sold like it was expected by Maruti Suzuki.

Turbocharging the engine took the overall price to a much higher point and thus, diesel sounded like better option to entire India. One can expect Maruti to launch the same 1.0L engine in India under the Swift moniker but getting 1.4L is not possible with present conditions of automotive market.

Suzuki Swift Sport Auto Salon Edition was recently revealed online. The special edition car will get its first public debut at 2018 Tokyo Auto Salon in January. Surprisingly, the paint job of this car is inspired from the matte black finish that is given on 2018 Suzuki GSX-S1000.

Dark character suits the car as no other shade looked equally attractive till date on a Swift. Complementing the beauty, Suzuki has used Red highlights all over the body, primarily on the lip spoiler, side skirts and wing mirrors. Another thing that looks awesome is the use of satin grey shade on the front grill.

This highlights the unique hexagonal grill that almost every manufacturer around the world is supporting. The angry front fascia gets all black inner grill section, fog lights, smoked headlights and black number plate section. Side profile gets huge black alloy wheels for complete body makeover.

Three stripes can be seen running through the rear half of 2018 Suzuki Swift Sport Auto Salon Edition. The car measures 3890 mm in length, 1735 mm in width and 1500 mm in height. Wheelbase stays the same 2018 Suzuki Swift while only FWD is on offer across all variants.

Suzuki powers the Swift Sport through a powerful 1.4L, Boosterjet engine producing 140 HP at 5500 rpm and 230 Nm at 2500-3500 rpm. The turbocharged motor is exclusive to the Sport variant while India spec petrol Swift will carry just 1.2L, naturally aspirated engine.

Suzuki Swift Sport comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox, with both automatic and manual on offer presently. International market prices for the Swift Sport goes beyond the INR 10 lakh mark and that reduces the number of buyers if the same is projected for India. It even comes with dual exhaust outlets added into the lower bumper section.

Suzuki Swift was recently launched in Japan with a hybrid drive-train. The new car is available in Hybrid SG and Hybrid SL variants, carrying a totally different setup in comparison to the previously available SHVS equipped Swift Hybrid ML and Hybrid RS models.

This system uses a 91 PS, 1.2 liter, 4-cylinder unit along with a 10 kW motor. The engine comes mated to a 5-speed AGS gearbox. The system claims 32 kmpl of mileage while the high level of sophistication makes it good for pure electric drive for a short period at lower load.

This typical hybrid duo is available with front wheel drive and gets no different exterior feature than the regular version of Japan. 2017 Swift measures 3840 mm in length, 1695 mm in width and 1500 mm in height. It carries a wheelbase of 2450 mm.

Interior of the hybrid variant comes with blue highlight on AGS knob, paddle shifters and hybrid display with power distribution graph for ease of understanding the systems working. The typical hybrid variant also gains Suzuki dual camera brake support.

Indian 2017 Swift would not bring this drive-train to the country as recent levels of taxes on hybrid have gone up by a large margin. If it was a fully electric car, it could achieve the benefits from the low tax scheme instantly.

Upcoming Indian variant for the Swift will carry the tried and tested 1.3 liter diesel and 1.2 liter petrol engine. Both are expected to stay exactly the same output but will get a bump in overall performance with lighter body weight. Maruti Suzuki may launch this before this festive season for boost in sales.
