2021 Suzuki Swift Sport launched in Singapore with MHEV system

After Malaysia, the 2021 Suzuki Swift Sport made its entry to Singapore, with the hot hatch’s turbocharged gasoline engine now combined with an advanced 48V mild-hybrid (MHEV) system. Therefore, it manages to deliver that speedy performance without sacrificing fuel efficiency. 

On the outside, it still sports the familiar looks of the third generation Swift. For this model, there are contrasting details that add to the stylish design of the subcompact hatchback. It gets a revised frontend that looks meaner all thanks to its larger grille, revised bumper with skirts, and angry-looking headlights. Other special exterior highlights include the side skirts, the larger two-tone 17-inch wheels, its revised rear bumper, the dual-exhaust pipes, and of course the Sport badging at the rear.

Red accents are found on the door sidings, dashboard, instrument cluster, even the stitching is finished in red. You also get a D-shaped steering wheel for added sportiness. As for in-car entertainment, the Suzuki Swift Sport comes with a 7-inch display paired with a 6-speaker audio system, it’s also Apple CarPlay and Android Auto ready.

The Sport model also stands strong in terms of safety, with it getting SRS airbags (front, side, curtain), ABS, Lane Departure Alert, Weaving Alert, Adaptive Cruise Control, Tire Pressure Monitoring System, and a reversing camera.

Things get more exciting under the hood, as the Suzuki Swift Sport is powered by a 1.4-liter turbocharged gasoline engine that’s paired with a 48V mild-hybrid (MHEV) system. This combo produces 125 hp and 235 Nm of torque, therefore enabling the hot hatch to go from 0 to 100 km/h in 9.1 seconds. To make the drive even more fun, the Sport variant is exclusively mated to a 6-speed manual transmission.

With two ASEAN countries already receiving Suzuki’s halo car, will the Philippine market also get this hot hatch? Let’s cross our fingers on this as a Swift Sport does sound like a tasty addition to the Suzuki Philippines’ local lineup, and serves as the springboard for the electrification of the Japanese brand in the country.
