2012 Suzuki Swift Sport will be exhibited at this year's Frankfurt Motor Show in September.

The small hatchback is powered by a 1.6 liter M16A engine developed exclusively for the Swift Sport. It is mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox boasting nice performance that is both exciting and environmentally responsible. The four-cylinder delivers 136 PS (100 kW) and 160Nm (118 lb-ft).

The new Swift Sport offers superior cornering stability and brisker, more responsive handling thanks to struts with internal rebound springs and an exclusive rear-suspension design.

High levels of safety are assured by features such as a light, stiff, impact-absorbing body, 7 airbags including curtain airbags and a driver's knee airbag; and ESP (Electronic Stability Program).

The new Swift Sport will hit the market later this year. Stay tuned for more information and price list.
