Swift S Concept revealed at 2011 Melbourne Motor Show

July 3, 2011

The new Suzuki Swift S Concept has been unveiled at the 2011 Australian International Motor Show in Melbourne.

The Swift S Concept is powered by a 1.6 litre VVT engine, with the body sitting considerably lower to the ground and 60mm wider than the production version. The car features new front and rear sports bumpers, flared wheel arches, rear deck spoiler, 18 inch alloy wheels and fancy chrome accents on the fog lights and rear combination lamps.

Inside the cabin is black and yellow leather Recaro sports bucket seats, a specially-designed carbon-fibre centre console, leather-wrapped sports steering wheel, alloy sports pedals and premium chrome highlights on the instrument cluster.

The Lightning Pearl Yellow two-door is based on the all new model Swift. At first it didn’t seem Suzuki was going to add a sports model to the new face-lifted series, but it appears there is light at the end of the tunnel for Suzuki hatch diehards.

Should this concept become a reality, do you think it’ll have the same impact on the performance car scene as the original Suzuki Swift GTi did? Tell us what you think.
