The awesome little Suzuki Swift Sport has been given some special edition treatment in Australia, in the form of the Suzuki Swift Sport Red Devil edition. It arrives in July.
Set to add spice to the new model, the Swift Sport Red Devil comes with racy carbon-fibre-style decals for the bonnet, front end, doors, and front and rear side panels. These are contrasted with a unique Burning Red paint colour.
No other changes are made to the sporty hatch. Under the bonnet the regular 1.4-litre turbo four-cylinder petrol engine resides, producing 103kW and 230Nm. As we found out earlier in the year, the new model is surprisingly quick, recording a real-world Vbox-verified 0-100km/h in just 7.39 seconds in manual form, and 7.01 seconds in automatic form.
Coinciding with the launch of the special edition, Suzuki Australia is also announcing drive-away pricing. The manual is now available from $27,990 drive-away, while the auto is available from $29,990 drive-away. Suzuki Australia general manager for the auto department, Michael Pachota, said:
“A true testament to an incredibly hot hatch, the all-new Swift Sport turbo has been a great success since its launch in January this year; owning motoring media reviews and comparisons alike as one of the best bang-for-buck sports hatches in Australia. The Red Devil offers a hot new colour accentuated with an awesome carbon styled decal pack that really brings out the aggressive design cues of the Swift Sport”
Just 100 examples of the Red Devil will go up for grabs from July, with prices starting from $28,490, plus $666 GST.
