Suzuki is offering a better sport version of the regular Maruti Suzuki Swift in Malaysia, the new swift in the offering will be replacing the standard 1.2-litre kappa petrol engine by a much powerful 1.4-litre 4-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine which is capable of generating power equal to 140 hp at 5,500 rpm and a max torque of 230 Nm at 2,500 to 3,500 rpm, coupled with only a 6-speed automatic transmission gearbox with paddle shifters. The new 3rd generation Suzuki Swift Sport is being priced at RM 139,900 which translates to Rs. 25.3 lakh as Indian currency.
For a background check, Suzuki earlier existed the Malaysian market in the year 2016 due to a lack of demand, but after 5 year the company has reentered the Malaysian market with a new and better product which as of now is only exclusive to Malaysia. Suzuki has not joined hands with the local company Malaysia, the Naza Eastern Motors and they will be the sole distributer for the company, starting with their first project of the third-generation Suzuki Swift Sport.
Talking about some other interesting new features in the new Swift Sport’s engine, the car will be the front-wheel drive which will be powered only via 6-speed automatic shifter, which might be a let down for some as the company is in no mood to offer a manual shifter for the Swift Sport. With these specifications, the Swift Sport will be sprinting from 0-100 kph in just 8 seconds with a top speed of 205 kph.
The exterior as well as the interior both get some major changes, starting with the exterior the car gets a sportier front facia with a new set of projector headlamps with LED DRLs, new halogen Fog lamps, a new designed front grille with a broad carbon-fibre like material slat at the centre, side skirts, a reprofiled rear bumper, contrasting dual-tone colour with black roof and pillars available, a dual exhaust tip and bigger 16-inch dual-tone alloy wheels.
