Suzuki introduces the Swift Sport SZ-R in the UK

Article by Christian Andrei, on March 21, 2013

Suzuki GB PLC has introduced the Swift Sport SZ-R seemingly right after it announced the Swift SZ-L Special Edition. Only 100 examples of the Swift Sport SZ-R will be built. It is targeted at consumers who wish to own a Swift Sport with a unique look but still hope to get the sporty, enjoyable experience of the standard Swift Sport.

The SZ-R comes with all the standard features of the standard Swift Sport. It is capable of accelerating from zero to 62mph in 8.7 seconds and it can reach a top speed of 121 mph. It is powered by a 136HP VVT engine that offers 44.1mpg when combined.

Every SZ-R has a Cosmic Black finish with contrasting Ablaze Red roof, rear spoiler and door mirrors as well as SZ-R side badging.

The interior of all of the 100 cars features numbered door sill guards, red accented gear shift knob and red trimmed carpet mats.

A high level of standard equipment is offered by Swift Sport, including seven airbags, auto air conditioning, cruise control, Bluetooth connectivity and USB port, rear privacy glass and a set of 17-inch wheels.

Also offered as standard are the HID Projector headlamps for low and high beam. Typically, rivals offer this safety feature as a cost option on far more expensive cars. Swift Sport SZ-R will go on sale on March 1. It costs £14,249, which is only £500 more expensive more than a standard Swift Sport.
