The Japanese carmaker is also expected to launch a sportier version of the Swift a few months afterwards and a test mule for that very car has been spotted testing, under some rather heavy camouflage.
Compared to the normal Swift, the Sport features more aggressive front and rear bumpers along with headlamps that sport integrated LED daytime running lights. At the rear, there is a prominent roof spoiler along with two fat exhausts sticking out of the rear bumper.
The Interiors of the new Swift Sport were leaked a long time back along with the rest of the car. The interior is kept quite minimalistic with a flat-bottomed three-spoke steering wheel. Also present is a multimedia touchscreen display above the three rotary knob controllers for the A/C system.
The new Swift Sport is also expected to ditch its current 1.6-litre naturally aspirated engine for a 1.4-litre Boosterjet engine found on the Vitara S SUV sold in Europe. The turbocharged engine produces 138bhp and 220Nm of torque in the Vitara S.
The new Swift Sport is expected to make its debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.
