Suzuki introduces the Swift Sport SZ-R in the UK

Article by Christian A., 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.

Suzuki Swift Sport is the high-performing flagship of Suzuki’s range of Swifts, and it comes with a higher level of steering, tuning, and braking abilities than the model it is based on, the standard Swift. The prior model went into production first in Japan in 2005 and then in Hungary in 2006. The sporty experience and everyday functionality earned it many enthusiastic admirers in about 40 countries and territories worldwide.

The new Swift Sport has the same genes as the prior model, but it illustrates the ideal of creating a sophisticated, sporty compact with the new Swift that Suzuki had launched in the UK in the autumn of 2010. Fitting its position as the new high-performing flagship of the Swift range, it signals the search for more improved handling, drive performance, ecological compatibility, and an adamant attention to quality. In total, it provides a gratifying experience of Suzuki's sports genes.

Suzuki has plans to debut the new Swift in an increasing number of countries, starting in October 2011, with the UK sales launch slated in the beginning of 2012.


The exterior of the new Suzuki Swift Sport conveys its progress to a more athletic look. The close-to-the-ground shape provides a feeling of constancy; the big front grille suggests at the capabilities inside and is framed with big, distinct fin fog light bezels that attach an even sportier character.

Streamlined components found only in the new Suzuki Swift Sport manage airflow, quell lift, and provide the vehicle with a visually lower centre of gravity. Newly improved high-intensity discharge headlights with a grey metallic coating along with newly designed rear combo lamps strengthen the feeling of vibrancy communicated by the exterior.
