This is the new Suzuki Swift Sport. And this is a very important car. If you like fun, fast things, it's worth noting that the BMW M3 or Porsche 911 is not only a benchmark in its class, but also a barometer of the place where the world of racing cars operates.As with these cars, its latest iteration caused it to become turbocharged because it remained in the old, turbine-free configuration longer than any other hot flap.

Turbos means more power, right?
Correct. But funny cars are much more than the data on their catalog card. The way they provide performance, how much they immerse you in the experience,
is much more important. Old Swift Sport was wonderful in this - one of the best.Its naturally aspirated engine required a full twist if you wanted to go fast, and thanks to such hard-earned achievements, you wanted to keep your speed in the corners, committing to them much harder than in a stronger, more "serious" gap. Final score? You will have an absolute rebellion, no matter how big or smaller you are on the road.

What's new in this version?
A reasonable amount, and its newly turbocharged engine is a great story. The four-cylinder 1.4-liter turbo replaces the old four-cylinder 1.6-liter engine. The power almost does not change - from 4 to 138 horsepower - but there is much more torque. These rockets reach speeds from 120 to 170 pounds and are delivered at a speed of 2,500 rpm
, which is just over half the speed needed.The car is also lighter; the new body structure not only increases stiffness, but also contributes to a drop to 70 kg, up to 975 kg. Connect some helium balloons to the roof and it will probably flow out.

Is it charging faster?
A little, but still not a rocket: 0-62 miles per hour in 8.1 seconds and 130 miles per hour do not guarantee any boast, but none of the characters is particularly important. As we said, play is the most important point of the program. There are also subtler changes. The suspension has been modified to get a slightly lower cant and a bit more stiffness, but nothing revolutionary, while the six-speed manual transmission remains ten percent shorter this time. These are nerdy patches, which should not be too swayed by the boat, but they can make the younger, hot hatch of the Swift Sport hatch feel a bit older.

In fact?
The first impressions are more of an adult car. The rev limit is at a modest 6000 rpm, and the best engine work is done at around 5,500 rpm. You change beforehand and you can even stick to the tools in which you normally change, chasing after a moment. On the kind of fierce, winding way back Great Britain specializes in, there is a chance that you will change to the third at the beginning of the road and you do not have to change gear to the next intersection. There is only turbo lag if you really are looking for it and you feel more muscular than suggested by 0-62.This lack of overturning is immediately obvious. The car does not steer (if you do not enter corners at completely unspecified speeds), turning sharply and holding yourself steadily. The old car had lower, easier to reach limits; It's a car that you have to work a little harder if you want to bring out its aggressive side.
