The first official image of the all-new Suzuki Swift Sport has been revealed ahead of its global debut at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show. This would be the third generation of the hot hatch.

According to Suzuki, this generation Swift Sport has “undergone a complete redesign and delivers an all-new level of excitement for sport minded drivers across the world.” Of the single image available to us, we can see a completely new and aggressive front bumper as compared to standard Swift. The grille is reworked while the alloy wheels are now very Italian-esque. There is a blacked out bumper splitter that adds to the sporty character of the hot hatch. One thing to be noted is that the new Swift will only be available in the four-door configuration unlike the two generations before it which were two-doors only. The new Swift Sport is expected to retain the characteristics like handling and body control of the outgoing Swift Sport. Based on the new HEARTECH platform, the new Swift Sport will be a lot lighter than the previous two generations. It will keep on the manual transmission as well. On the inside, the new Swift Sport will have new cabin tech and features including new infotainment system and all the connectivity options.

The Japanese carmaker is still tight lipped about what will power the new Swift Sport, but there are speculations that the new Swift Sport will have a turbocharged 1.4-litre Boosterjet gasoline motor under the hood which does duty in the Suzuki Vitara S. The power output is expected to be somewhere around 140bhp.

Upon its debut, the new Swift Sport will take on the likes of Abarth 500, Ford Fiesta ST, Renault Clio, and Volkswagen UP GTI. Prices of the new car are expected to be slightly higher than the outgoing car.
