The UK car market is readying itself for a unique limited edition model in the next few days, with just 100 examples of the new Suzuki Swift Sport being made available on these shores.
SZ-R badges may be the same on all the 100 models built and shipped to the UK, but each has an individualised unique number on the door sill protector.
With the roof, rear spoiler and door mirrors finished in Ablaze Red, the Swift Sport SZ-R has a main finish in Cosmic Black.The interior touches are finished off by red-trimmed carpet mats and red accents on the gear lever, however, the car is otherwise much the same as the standard Swift Sport. The model boats a feisty 1.6-litre 134bhp petrol engine and the manufacturers claim the model possesses the finest chassis and handling of any 'warm hatch' on the market.
Seven airbags, climate control and cruise control are among the car's standard equipment, which are supplemented by Bluetooth and USB connectivity, rear privacy glass and 17-inch light-alloy wheels. Default features are also the xenon headlights for both dip and main beam.
Friday March 1 is the day the car finally reaches the UK market, and with a price of £14,249, it arrives at only £500 more than the regular Swift Sport model from Suzuki.
