Suzuki has unveiled a sport version of its Swift hatchback at the Paris motor show.
The production Sukuki Swift Sport - inspired by this car - will arrive in the UK in the second half of 2011.
It gets a tweaked version of the 1.6 in the standard Swift and chassis improvements combining to produce a much more dynamic drive.
The show car has a rear spoiler, a new front splitter and honeycomb lower grille, a lower ride height and sits on all-black alloy wheels.
Suzuki is also expected to reveal a European-spec sport version of the Kizashi Sport in Paris, after the US-spec version was unveiled at the New York motor show in April.
Suzuki is still questioning whether to bring the standard Kizashi saloon to the UK. The main sticking point is the car’s 2.4-litre petrol engine, which will confine it to the domestic retail market, blocking it from fleet and commercial use.
The US model of the Kizashi launched at New York had similar features to the Swift model unveiled today.
It featured 18in alloy wheels, a 10mm lower ride height, a honeycomb lower grille and new front bumper, side skirts, and a small rear spoiler. On the inside, the vehicle had a perforated leather steering wheel.
