New Suzuki Swift Sport Priced From £16,499 In The UK For A Limited Period

The new Suzuki Swift Sport is about to arrive in the UK, and to celebrate the occasion, the Japanese company has launched a price offer of £16,499.

The launch offer includes a £1,500 saving off list price. The hot Suzuki Swift arrives on June 1 with a comprehensive list of standard equipment that includes model-specific touches like semi bucket seats, red accents on the dash and console, an infotainment system with navigation and Bluetooth, and more.

Power comes from Suzuki’s turbocharged 1.4-liter Boosterjet engine that makes 138hp (140PS) and 169 lb-ft (230Nm). The new engine offers 44 percent more peak torque than its naturally aspirated predecessor, available from just 2,500rpm.

Combine this with a kerb weight of 975kg (2,149 lbs), and the new Suzuki Swift Sport can hit 62mph (100km/h) from a standstill in 8.1 seconds and top out at 130mph (209km/h).

The new, lighter and stiffer architecture of the Swift Sport is further enhanced with high-performance Monroe dampers and bigger brakes, while a set of 17-inch polished alloy wheels is standard fit. In addition, the new Suzuki Swift Sport comes with an advanced collision mitigation system, as well as a lane departure warning and prevention system.

The launch offer is now available to both new and existing customers and will be available until June 30, so if you want to bag a new Suzuki Swift Sport in the UK, now is the time to do it.

    It has to! 18k is almost Ford Fiesta ST money, and at that price what would you rather have?

      The three cylinder engine with cylinder deactivation might be a future concern.
      VW’s 1.5 four pot with similar technology can not be ordered on a new Seat Ibiza in the UK. Why is that?

      • haudit

        Probably because of some bullshit internal VW Group politics. The Volkswagen brand is their golden goose, and they probably think the 1.5 four pot with cylinder deactivation should (for the moment at least) be ‘exclusive’ to Volkswagen, rather than being offered in something as humdrum as a SEAT.

        • Loquacious Borborygmus

          Seems plausible. I have heard that there may be problems with it, however. I’d like to know what those are.

    £16,499 is where this car should be priced, and I don’t think it’ll be too long until Suzuki realises that. At £18k, it’s dangerously close to rubbing shoulders with some far more capable machinery with considerably more horses under the bonnet.

      Did the original version of this article say 18?

        Did you read the article? The price of £16,499 includes an introductory discount of £1,500, meaning that the car’s regular RRP is £17,999

    I don’t know, the camera or and angle or the color but Something about that first pic make it looks very comical.

    Cool little car. But sometimes it’s better to leave out some of the details, e.g., 8.1 seconds.

    • Loquacious Borborygmus

      Why? Do you think people driving one and enjoying its light weight and fun handling will think, “Damn you 8.1 seconds! If only you were 6.5 this would be ten times the car!”

  • Loquacious Borborygmus

    What they say on their website is NOT what dealers tell you.
    One openly admitted to me that they had stopped production of the model!
