    The Swift Sport is a thoroughly sorted, stiffened, lowered, meaner looking and gruffer-sounding distant relative to the standard car. This little car has credibility way beyond the WRC link. Inside, the car is totally new. In sixth, the Sport is geared for The flipside is that the Swift is no Renault Clio for grunt.

    We shall start with the good bits. The rally-bred, high-compression At low speeds, a diverter valve in the intake plenum allows the intake air to ride a shortcut between the throttle body and the inlet ports.

    Suzuki Swift Sport cockpit has been made classier and more practical, and has six standard airbags as before. To achieve this, said diverter valve closes the shortcut and the air therefore takes a longer route when the engine is running at medium revs.

    At the top end of the tacho range, large volumes of air need to be quickly sent into the cylinder head, so the valve opens the shorter path again. In all driving conditions, the new Swift Sport engine is noticeably improved. The lustier powerplant revs freely from rpm all the way to its rpm redline. The variable intake system may not be the only reason for this — ECU re-mapping for the electronic throttle, ignition timing and variable cam timing has undoubtedly contributed to the overall effect.

    Zesty is exactly the word to also describe the dynamic behaviour. While several carmakers still struggle to get electric power steering to possess the feel and accuracy of a good hydraulic system, Suzuki already had it perfected with the Swift Sport. Six years on, there are not many electric steering systems that can match it. This is a critical ingredient in endowing the small hatch with the finest handling in its class.

    You can slow down as you approach a corner the pedals are perfect for heel-and-toe or steer into the apex at an alarming speed. Either way, there is barely a hint of understeer, the car simply treading through neatly.

    Brake as you enter a corner using strong four-wheel discs and the Sport responds with gentle oversteer that can be easily checked with the steering or by releasing the brake pedal. In sixth, the Sport is geared for Fuel economy is significantly better as a result. During my weekend test drive, despite frequent wide-open-throttle acceleration incidentally a real joy , the trip computer persistently indicated Although largely unchanged in styling, the new Sport shares none of its body panels with the old model.

    The roof and the waist line, for instance, taper more sharply, resulting in a shorter and shallower rear window. Suzuki got it right the first time, so there are no drastic design changes needed. The signature curves at the front are still there, as is the full-height grille with black honeycomb insert.

    It is no doubt one of the snazziest small five-door hatchbacks around. Only the rear number plate inset in the bumper is not so pretty. Inside, the car is totally new. Against the measuring tape, the 50mm increase in wheelbase looks like a waste of time, but sit in the back of the Swift and you immediately feel a significant improvement in legroom. Attention to detail is pretty obvious on first acquaintance.

    The trip computer used to be located high up on the dash where the toggle button is only accessible to the front passenger, now it is conveniently placed at the centre of the instrument cluster with the mode button alongside. Vastly improved audio quality and the addition of a USB port to connect a smartphone or iPod are other major upgrades.
