Urban racer bits for the Suzuki Swift Sport
Suzuki has debuted a bolder version of its popular Swift hatchback, in Thailand. The fourth-generation Suzuki Swift is one of the Japanese brand’s core products and to bridge the dynamic image appeal between Swift Sport and the less dramatic derivatives, enter the Extreme.
Revealed at an auto show in Thailand, the Swift Extreme concept shows how receptive the current hatch is to design upgrades without spoiling its proportions. Suzuki’s design team has added all the requisite styling details you’d expect on a youth-orientated performance hatch.
Viewed from the front there is a blacked-out grille and new bumper moulding. Underscoring the grille is a splitter and dominating the Swift Extreme’s front view is a reshaped bonnet with air vents punched into its surfacing. In its side profile the Swift Extreme rolls a new alloy wheel design (of unspecified size) and features huge fender flares.
Around the rear there are dual fixed spoilers, one the roofline and other applied to the hatch's lower tailgate section. Suzuki has also added a body-coloured diffuser, framing the rear bumper, with integrated square exhaust ends. For the moment this Suzuki Swift Extreme is purely a concept car, but all the parts appear to be of a production specification. There is a likelihood that some of these Extreme accessories could become optional upgrades in future. They would appeal to those Swift owners who desire a more dynamic appearance but don’t quite want to commit to the full Swift Sport ownership experience.
