Suzuki Swifts specs
The Suzuki Swift Sport has been officially priced – RM97,593.50 for a Suzuki Swift Sport 1.6 Manual and RM102,723.50 for a Suzuki Swift Sport 1.6 Automatic. These prices are on the road with insurance.
Specs include 6 SRS airbags, antilock brakes with EBD and brake assist, a 6 speaker system with a CD tuner that supports MP3 and WMA which you can control via integrated audio controls on the Swift Sport’s leather steering wheel.
Wheels are 16 inch alloy wheels, and the interior is done up in black and red. The suspension system uses MacPherson struts and coil springs at the front and a torsion beam with coil spring setup at the rear.
The spec sheet for the car indicates the 1.6 liter engine puts out 125 horsepower at 6,800rpm and 148Nm of torque at 4,800rpm – rather low for a modern 1.6 liter unit with variable valve timing actually – but requires RON98 fuel so be sure to only feed the best fuel you can get into it if you want maximum output – the closest to RON98 here is Shell V-Power Racing I suppose.
Kerb weight is 1,090kg for the manual and 1,100kg for the auto. The manual goes from 0 to 100km/h in 8.9 seconds, hardly enough to knock you back into your seats, while the auto is much slower at 11.4 seconds, probably because of the auto’s gearing.
