2021 Suzuki Swift Sport: Key highlights

It was only a few days back, April 9 to be precise when Suzuki made a comeback in the Malaysian market with the third-gen Swift Sport. So, after five long years, Suzuki will once again roll on the Malaysian roads and it might be a good choice for first-time buyers and even for those looking for a reliable budget option.

Accompanying Suzuki in its return journey is Naza that will represent the Japanese automaker in the mainstream automotive sector under its subsidiary Naza Eastern Motors. It has been reported that following the Swift hatch would be the popular Jimny.

From the table above it is clear that the third-gen Swift Sport is a fast car and it’s all due to its lightweight build. Speaking of which, the car sits on the brand’s new ‘Heartect’ platform that helps the car register a low kerb weight of 990 kg. Thus making it 80 kg lighter than the previous model. For reference, the Myvi 1.3 weights 985 kg, and the X50 reads 1,325 kg on the weighing scale.

Other highlighting bits include the presence of a turbocharger, a six-speed automatic unit, and steering-mounted shift paddles.

The new-gen Swift Sport is revised in every sense and so are its dimensions and styling. Starting with the former, the hatchback is 40 mm wider both at the front and back, 15 mm lower, and has a 20 mm longer wheelbase. All this increases the car’s straight-line stability, gives it an athletic stance, and makes it more grounded.
