The Suzuki Swift S-Concept has debuted at the Geneva Motor Show, with enhanced sports styling pointing towards the upcoming Swift Sport successor.
Suzuki was light on the details of the Swift S-Concept, with the Japanese manufacturer maintaining that it is a design study only. The Swift S-Concept is powered by a 1.6-litre petrol engine like the current-generation Swift Sport, although Suzuki would not elaborate on power outputs or performance data. Also featured is a 6-speed manual transmission, a feature unique to the S-Concept and not currently found in either the current Swift Sport or the all-new standard Swift hatch.
Visually, the Swift S-Concept means business, although expect the production version of the Swift Sport to be tamed down considerably. Highlights include the Kizashi-inspired plunging black grille, brushed metallic bumper inserts and claws around the chrome fog lights, red Brembo brake calipers screaming from behind 18-inch 15-spoke alloy wheels, large roof-mounted rear wing, rear diffuser with twin exhaust pipes, and smoky tinting on the headlights and taillights.
Inside, the Swift S-Concept features black and yellow leather Recaro sports seats; leather sports steering wheel and gearstick; metallic pedals and piano black dashboard surfaces.
Although under development, Suzuki did not hint at when the new Sport would be launched and said the Swift S-Concept was designed to gather feedback from the public that would help shape Suzuki’s future small sports models.
