2018 Suzuki Swift Sport Performance & Safety Features – Video
With a 1.4 BOOSTERJET engine producing 230N⋅m of torque, and a total kerb weight that is 80kg less than its predecessor, the lighter and quicker Swift Sport has evolved into a genuine hot hatch that makes exhilarating sports driving a reality.
1.4 BOOSTERJET Engine
The 1.4 BOOSTERJET petrol engine delivers high power with good fuel economy. The new turbocharger helps the engine produce impressive torque from low in the rev range, while the small displacement and direct fuel injection system optimises fuel consumption.
The direct fuel injection system features seven-hole injector nozzles, enabling increased fuel pressure and highly atomised fuel injection, resulting in higher engine output and a cleaner exhaust.
The turbocharger system is equipped with normally-closed wastegate valve control, which defaults to the closed position to provide excellent response in normal driving, and opens to minimise fuel consumption when cruising.
Advances in the performance and driving feel of the new Suzuki Swift Sport have been matched with significant safety features, including advanced forward detection, Dual Sensor Brake Support, lane departure warning and other key technologies.
Advanced forward detection system
The new Swift Sport now features Suzuki’s forward detection system, which uses the combination of a monocular camera and a laser sensor. The system offers superior functionality by combining a monocular camera, which excels at mid-to-long distance detection and recognition of such traffic elements as pedestrians and lane markers, and a laser sensor, which excels at short-distance and nighttime detection.
