Maruti prepares to launch toned down Suzuki Swift Sport hot hatch in India (Video)
Internationally, Suzuki Swift Sport is available with a 1.6 liter M16A engine that generates peak power of 135 PS, but due to higher import duties in India, this model wont be feasible in the Indian auto industry.
Suzuki Sport with a 1.6 liter engine from the SX4 will be launched in a semi hatchback segment and will possess 105 PS and 153 Nm torque. The 1.4 engine will generate 100 PS power and will be seen with new engine upgrades and a new body kit, stiffer suspensions, rugged brakes and Traction Control System besides a number of internal and external features which will make heads turn. Pricing is not yet revealed but if the Suzuki Sport has to contend with Polo and Fabia, we feel prices should be in the range of Rs 800,000.
Suzuki first launched Swift Sport back in 2000. Over the years, Suzuki has upgraded Swift Sport several times. Currently, Swift Sport is into its third generation. At the 2012 Delhi Auto Expo earlier this year, Maruti had showcased the intentional variant of Swift Sport along with its hybrid compatriot.
