This is the new Suzuki Swift Sport!
We have literally one picture and no details of Suzuki's upcoming hot hatch
The Suzuki Swift Sport has always been a bit of a Top Gear hero. Naturally aspirated, light, a joy to manhandle and styled presumably to resemble a baby sports shoe. It is - it was - really good.
This is the new one. And immediately you will notice that it no longer resembles a baby sports shoe. The fact it’s yellow probably doesn’t help. It’s recognisably a Swift Sport… just a little different. We’ll leave you to decipher whether it’s a good change or a bad change.
Otherwise, that’s pretty much your lot. Suzuki isn’t revealing anything until its world debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show on 12 September, so we’ve got a while to go yet.
We are told however, that this new third-gen Swift Sport “has undergone a complete redesign and delivers an all-new level of excitement for sport minded drivers across the world”.
Have they whacked on a turbo and given in to the modern world of motoring? Will it still be the chuckable loon we know and love? Tune in on 12 September, same Bat-time, same Bat-channel…
