Suzuki has launched a hatch with attitude for the UK market. Launched back in 2005, the Suzuki Swift was followed by launch of the Sports version and now since they are so thorough with the concept, a new version rolls out, dubbed Swift Attitude. This indigenous, limited and special version Swift is highly based on its predecessor.
Scheduled to hit the showrooms in the Britain on April 2, Suzuki will produce only 500 units of the Attitude hatch. Offered in two-distinctive variants, there is the three-door version priced at £10,750 (INR 8.77 lacs) and the five-door model, pegged at £11,220 (INR 9.15 lacs).
Based on the SZ3 model, the Attitude will appeal to younger drivers. Under the hood is a 1.2-litre Dual VVT petrol motor pumping up to 93 bhp max power, together with a stunning fuel efficiency of 20 kmpl and a CO2 emissions figure of 116 g/km.
In terms of safety, seven airbags and ESP come as standard. Also standard is USB auxiliary and air conditioning, while for added value, Swift Attitude is packed with front fog lamps and rear privacy glass together with an enhanced sporty appearance consisting of Carbon fiber effect roof and door mirrors, rear upper spoiler in body color, Carbon fiber effect ‘Attitude’ badging and 16-inch wheels in black paint finish. Complementing the mean attitude is the Superior White only exterior.
There is no hope of the Swift’s meaner brother making its way to India, but do we really need a three-door hatch with attitude?
