You also seem to get bored and tired of driving Maruti Suzuki Swift and wanna have something out of the balloon here? Why not then think about the Suzuki is supermini? This Swift Sport Hybrid gets a bullet in the gun, but when in India and at what price? Quite a huge one, really.
More complex, heavier, and more costly than the outgoing Swift Sport, Suzuki’s new hybrid is going to have its task cut out if this is to be considered alongside its rival VW Polo GT, Altroz, and i20 Turbo. In addition, not to forget worth mentioning about its price, which is almost Rs 21 lakh in the UK, which likely, assumed to be dropped down when the model would arrive in India. Therefore, the Swift Sport is in a sedate bothered.
Suzuki has obtained the urge to improve the Swift too much over the years, but the culture of various features on the Sport has maintained to enhance its looks. The 17s look massive on this tiny box, but not cartoonish, as it seems! The Series II acquires the new headlights and taillights; of course, the cabin is central and discloses the cheapness of the Swift’s origins. You do sit a bit high in the front sports seats.
The element that has had nothing taken to it is the engine, which prevails at 103kW. Suzuki’s powerful 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder is liable for those figures. The more reliable transmission is the six-speed manual, giving these modest numbers to the first wheels through a usual open diff. No gimmicks here!
What is it like to drive Swift Sport?
More elegant and less cluttered than its predecessor did, its additional 55kg around meant Suzuki had to damper rates, following in a small hyperactive ride, preparing for a relaxed chassis. The steering, too, no lengthened takes a superfluous amount of energy to run for a car and has a more extended action. Oh, and unlike our old Swift Sport, our new Sport test car was not engaged in being driven around by the modesty of camber adjustments and the top of the road, which goes for a less distracting driveway.
Now let’s come to the crafty part. if you have made up your mind about buying this latest sport after its arrival in India, we must discuss a little bit about its potential rivals- VW Polo GT, Altroz and i20 Turbo. Powered by a set of two engines, Altroz has been designed to offer excellent protection and has achieved a 5-star Global NCAP rating as well. While the dual-tone gives the Swift sport a first-class atmosphere, the flat-bottom steering makes it rather excellent from the inside of the car.
There is one distinct benefit that Swift has experienced over its rivals over the past two ages and that is its driving charm. The i20 Turbo, on the other hand, you do not perceive that kick feeling of the turbo kicking, a peculiarity that some chauffeurs might crave. this turbo feeds to those buyers who consider refinement more than driving joy and are inclined to pay a bit more for better essence.
On the other hand, glancing at the VW Polo GT’s vital stats and you may assume that it is at a distinct disadvantage as it makes an 113bhp three-cylinder unit. Whereas the Swift Sport’s engine delivers 170lb-ft and on the other hand, the VW Polo has only 147lb-ft. In a match of Top Trumps, then, the Swift Sport has the VW thrashed and would be meant for those who fancy power and peppiness over mileage.
That said, we believe Swift Sport will be a hit in India, and it sells in numbers that will make Suzuki fans happy as they have been waiting for this for years now.
