2018 Suzuki Swift Sport unveiled ahead of Frankfurt show

The new Suzuki Swift Sport has been revealed ahead of its full debut at September's 2017 Frankfurt motor show. Compared to the less sporting members of the Swift family, the new Sport has a redesigned front fascia with a larger and more aggressively styled grille. There's also new alloy wheels, stickier tyres, lowered suspension, black side sill extensions, and a black front lip spoiler. A new rear bumper design is almost a certainty.
