The 1.3 petrol is also available with an automated manual transmission or with four-wheel drive. Vehicles fitted with the 1.3-litre engine were designated HT51S, with the 1.5-litre version assigned HT81S. The shorter three-door body variant formed the basis of the Swift Sport in Japan, or Ignis Sport in export markets. Prior to this, the «Swift» nameplate had been applied to the Suzuki Cultus in numerous export markets. Like the previous car, changes to the suspension have been made. It also has two-tone beige and black interiors, unlike the hatchback’s all-black interiors.
The Swift was marketed in the Japanese domestic market (JDM) as the Cultus and elsewhere as the Suzuki Swift, Suzuki Forsa, Suzuki Jazz, Chevrolet Swift, Chevrolet Sprint and Sprint Metro, Geo and Chevrolet Metro, Pontiac Firefly, Maruti 1000, Holden Barina and Subaru Justy. Inside, designers included leather bucket seats with sporty red stitching and «Sport» mark, a new steering wheel and different instrumentation. In January 2014, The Swift Sport was updated to include a 6.1-inch combined satnav/dab radio infotainment touchscreen as standard. The six-speed auto trades a tiny bit of fuel economy (but no performance) for more refined progress. Very hard to beat in terms of value for money. The Suzuki Swift is a subcompact car produced by Suzuki. Named «Swift Sport», it is powered by an enhanced M16A unit, a high-revving 1.6-litre, naturally aspirated DOHC VVT four-cylinder engine with an 11.1:1 compression ratio, high lift cams, forged pistons, and strengthened valve springs.
Introduced in 2003, it featured redesigned bumpers, and was fitted with a higher-output version of the 1.5-litre engine. The vehicle was available with either front or four-wheel drive. Due to the local presence of the Chevrolet-badged model, Suzuki in Japan did not utilise the modifications for a Suzuki-badged model of its own.
