Suzuki Swift

The Suzuki Swift is a subcompact vehicle from the Suzuki Motor Corporation. When the model was launched in 1985, it was known as the SA-310. In 1986 it was renamed the Swift and was powered by a modest 993 cc straight-3 engine giving 50 hp. This car was pretty slow as it had a 0 to 60 mph acceleration time of 14.9 seconds. The engine on the other hand is very light, weighing in at only 63 kg. The Swift was sold in different markets as the Pontiac Firefly, the Chevrolet Sprint, the Geo Metro, the Maruti Esteem and the Maruti Swift MK4. Further, in Japan, the version of the Swift is known as the Suzuki Cultus. Also, in South America, it is sold as the Chevrolet Swift. Variations of the Swift include a 3-door hatchback, a 5-door hatchback, a 4-door sedan, and a 2-door convertible. The suspension in all models comes from the Suzuki Alto. There were two different models available, with the first being the 1.0 GA and the second being the 1.0 GL. The GA model was the budget trim level, with plastic wheel covers, a 5-speed transmission and cloth trim. The GL model was the more luxurious of the two, and had a 5-speed transmission, a sunroof and alloy wheels rather than wheel covers. Further, the series was available in a number of engine configurations including a carbureted or fuel injected turbocharged 1.0 liter engine and a carbureted or fuel injected 1.3 liter engine. For the video game fanatics, the Swift is not new as it is featured on the Gran Turismo 2 game by Sony. Also, the Swift concept version, known as Concept S2, is featured on the Gran Turismo 4 game by Sony. Additionally, the Suzuki Swift Super 1600 is featured on the Colin McRae Rally: DIRT game by Codemasters.
