New-generation platform 'HEARTECT'
The new Swift Sport rests on the “HEARTECT” platform, a new-generation Suzuki platform that delivers enhanced fundamental vehicle performance through light weight and high rigidity.
A comprehensive overhaul of the underbody’s structure and component layout has resulted in the replacement of the segmented frame of the previous platform with a continuous frame that increases underbody stiffness. The new frame is characterised by a smooth, curving form that efficiently disperses energy, enhancing collision safety.
Swift Sport VR DRIVE
This specially developed simulator lets you virtually experience driving the new Suzuki Swift Sport.
Its seat, steering wheel and pedals are genuine Swift Sport components.
The exhilarating driving experience is simulated through an advanced VR headset and actuators that realistically move the system in sync with what you see.
1.0 BOOSTERJET direct-injection turbo engine
The downsized 1.0 BOOSTERJET direct-injection turbo engine creates torque on par with those of a naturally aspirated 1.8-litre engine from only one litre of displacement, while delivering excellent fuel economy. Its direct-injection system contributes to both low fuel consumption and the lowering of temperatures within the engine’s cylinders. Furthermore, the turbocharger, which forces compressed air into the cylinders, produces high engine torque even from the low-revolution range, making it suitable for a wide spectrum of driving environments, from urban driving to sporty driving away from the city.
Our models with 1.0L BOOSTERJET engine are;
Light and compact SHVS mild hybrid system
SHVS is an optimal mild hybrid system for compact cars. It incorporates an ISG (integrated starter generator), which performs as a generator as well as an electric motor, and a 12-volt lithium-ion battery. In situations that require high fuel use, such as when starting from a standstill or accelerating, SHVS helps suppress fuel consumption by providing electric motor assist using electricity generated through regenerative braking. Because the ISG uses a belt drive, rather than a conventional starter motor, to restart the engine after an automatic engine stop, it allows for a quiet and smooth start.
The SHVS is available in;
