Fans of the Suzuki Swift Sport (us included) can rest easy with the news that a new model is set to go on sale in 2018.

Based on the all-new Swift we revealed last year, it’ll be the first Sport to get a turbocharged engine as Suzuki hunts for more performance along with, crucially, lower CO2 emissions and cheaper running costs.

With emissions testing getting ever tougher, the company’s decision to fit the new Swift Sport with a turbocharged engine was all-but-inevitable even if purists will lament the loss of the old 1.6-litre engine’s lightning reactions and frenetic power delivery.

Those’ll be quickly forgotten when fans realise the new 1.4-litre Boosterjet will increase everyday performance significantly. Power rises from 136 to 140hp but torque jumps from an anaemic 118Ib ft at 4,400rpm to a much healthier 162Ib ft from just 1,500rpm.

That should be enough to drop the Swift Sport’s 0-62mph time to less than eight seconds (from 8.7 currently) and massively improve in-gear acceleration – transforming the Sport into a far more usable car as a result.

The new Swift Sport will feature a lightweight chassis shared with the Baleno hatchback, shown here

Key to this performance boost will be a platform that’s based on the one fitted to the new Baleno. Extensive use of high-strength steel means it weighs as little as 880kg and its heft could be reduced further in the smaller Swift Sport. Such a light weight would also appeal to people looking for old-school hot-hatch thrills – an audience where the Swift has traditionally won friends.
