2020 Suzuki Swift Sport; Light Body With Decent Performance
Which brings more power if it is bought with obesity? The 2020 Suzuki Swift Sport comes with a turbocharger, much body roll and 1,045 kilos – including the driver.
One of the most beautiful forms of frugality is to throw a Suzuki Swift sport in a serpentine curve. Before the vertex follows the realization: the world needs these sharp supermini, ground yourself – between all the hypercars with four-digit HP numbers and the big SUV with sports motors. Back to learn that 140 PS fun can – curvy line and low vehicle weight. The strongest swift according to EU standard, so with included a driver (75 kg) and fluid weighs 1,045 kg. Without a pilot, an operating swift sport undercutting the brand of a ton.
2020 Suzuki Swift Sport – Now With a Turbo
The sports variant of the last generation of swift was around 80 kilograms heavier, at equal length and three instead of five doors. Also weaker: a 1.6-liter vacuum cleaner with 136 HP. stuck In 2011 launched model A 1.4-liter four-cylinder turbo now drives the fastest model of the brand.
The loader provides more torque: 230 instead of 160 Newton meters, which adjoin to earlier. The charging pressure can unhide on the onboard computer. This is a nice gimmick, in practice but without meaning. The sense of balance says: from just under 3,000 rpm, the engine of the “Boosterjet”-Reihe works absolutely satisfactory. The thrust remains to get felt up to the speed limit.
Long before the needle reaches the auspicious 8.000 mark of the Red-backed revolution counter, the limiter uses. Without jerk and acoustically unspectacular. Generally get no bumps sounds from the duplex exhaust pipes at the rear. Also, the Turbo tweeting nothing before the riders when gas deceleration or shifting up a gear.
The Suzuki developers placed emphasis on shortest shift travel. This makes the mood, although the lanes could be more accurately defined. There is not an alternative to the manual six-speed transmission. Suzuki delivers the sport variant only with front-wheel drive, all-wheel drive is available in the swift only in combination with the 1.2-litre entry-level engine. We miss on the exit of corners less than a mechanical differential lock 4WD. Yes, in most cases, the front axle with the 140 Horsepower copes. But occasionally the inside wheel in the acceleration turns out.
That means a few km/h speed loss. On the other hand: not bad. The 2020 Suzuki Swift Sport is not one for the dogged search after the last ounce of momentum or the latest possible breaking point. The electronic stability program prevents too daring experiments, and easily not completely turn off.
In addition, Suzuki not too pointed interpreted the car. The first manhole cover of the day has indeed suggested a circuit suspension. But the Monroe shock absorbers only in rough bumps are so rude. Quick change curves are an unexpectedly high rolling motion for a model with “Sport”-Schriftzug at the rear. The top swift is rather neutral to understeer, allows the approach of an outbreak of the rear at best at the abrupt RIP and while turning.
The advantage of soft interpretation: the Suzuki forgives mistakes. About enough is still accurate. At the same time, the Steering allows very accurate hunting after vertices. It is sufficiently direct and appealing in the area around the central position early. The resistance is pleasantly solid, only more feedback would be nice.
Suzuki fitted a steering wheel with the comparatively thin flange. In an opulent SUV, the delicate thing would be a foreign body, to the small, agile swift that fits. However: the ball not on the perforated leather on, but on piano lacquer are at best three-quarter three steering wheel position. It slips something.
The manufacturer engaged visibly optical differentiation from the rest of the lineup, with red and shiny black Islands in the matte hard plastic in the Interior. The front seats are a real exclusive sport variant in addition to the aluminum pedals. They are high-waisted and provide great lateral support. A pity that the seat can be tilted backward more.
2020 Suzuki Swift Sports Price & Release Date
In the rearview mirror, a Suzuki Swift is the visible sport on the meshed grille and wider side sills with carbon-look. In addition, only the strongest swift wearing the bright yellow. It is called internal champion yellow and is a reference to Suzuki’s title collection in the Super 1600 category of the World Rally Championship. No surcharge is payable for the Championship paint customers, other metallic tones provide the Japanese with 500 euros each into account. Thus, the options list would be traded off. More can not add configure, Suzuki stressed. The de facto fully equipped thus becomes the argument for a starting price ambitious at first glance.
The fleet swift euros 21,400 included 17-inch, Prober steering Wizard, slightly nervous city stopper and adaptive cruise control from 40 to 160 km/h. Similar strong competitors such as the available until the end of may Opel Corsa S (150 PS, 18.740 euros) or Abarth 595 (140 HP, from 18.490 euro) the swift price, come but with less standard equipment. The stronger VW Polo GTI (200 HP, 23.950 euro) starts not far above the swift. A but all these hot-hatch alternatives: heavy. Sports from the June 2018 is the swift at the dealer.
