The Swift Sport is available in Colombia in the 5-door trim only. It rides on 195/45 17-inch alloy wheels and is shod with disc brakes at the front and rear. Additional safety features include ABS, EBD, tyre pressure monitoring system, ESP and 6 airbags.
An integrated Bluetooth music system with steering-mounted controls, HID headlights with headlight washers, automatic headlights, electrically-adjustable and folding wing mirrors, automatic climate control and keyless entry system with an engine starter button are among the other features to be found on the hatchback.
However, it should be noted that Suzuki is gearing up to introduce the next generation Swift, with reports claiming an unveil towards the end of this year. Early images of the next-gen Swift Sport have emerged on the internet, suggesting an evolutionary styling for the performance hatch.
