Hot on the heels of the Swift SZ-L Special Edition, Suzuki GB PLC is pleased to announce the introduction of the Swift Sport SZ-R – strictly limited to just 100 cars.

SZ-R is aimed at buyers who want to own a Swift Sport with a very distinctive look, but still want the sporty, fun-to-drive experience of the standard Swift Sport.

The SZ-R possesses all the performance attributes of standard Swift Sport; 0-62mph in 8.7 seconds, top speed of 121 mph and a 136HP VVT engine which provides 44.1mpg combined.

Each SZ-R is finished in Cosmic Black with contrasting Ablaze Red roof, rear spoiler and door mirrors plus SZ-R side badging. Inside, each of the 100 cars has uniquely numbered door sill guards, red accented gear shift knob and red trimmed carpet mats.

Swift Sport offers a high level of equipment as standard including seven airbags, auto air conditioning, cruise control, Bluetooth connectivity and USB port, rear privacy glass and 17-inch wheels. HID Projector headlamps for low and high beam are also fitted as standard. This safety feature is often listed as a cost option by its direct competitors as well as on much more expensive cars.

Swift Sport SZ-R is available from Friday, 1st March and priced at £14,249 – just £500 more than a standard Swift Sport.
