Suzuki Swift Sport Yellow Rev Concept is stunning to look at with a contrast yellow body finish and a busy posterior
Suzuki generally has a major presence in Tokyo Auto Salon and 2019 is no different as it brought quite a few interesting concepts and mod jobs along the way. Toyota has made a big impact with the GR Supra Super GT race car, Raven Supra and Mark X sporty sedan while Nissan introduced Juke Personalization Adventure concept and Lexus the UX Modellista concept.
The Versatilist concept, a crossover hatchback based on Civic, and Jazz Elegant Collection to attract female audiences are other best bits at this year’s motoring exhibition. Suzuki’s Kanto Dream-1 coming off a design competition is as intriguing as it can get but the brand sticking by the traditional route of modifying the Swift stayed as the big highlight.
The Swift Sport Yellow Rev concept is done up in a special paint that roughly translates to High Chroma Yellow Pearl. The exterior, mainly the body, is painted in contrasting yellow while the pillars and roof gain black paint with glass tinted in black to ensure a dual-tone appearance.
The side profile does get matte black and grey stripes along with sporty decals that read Swift Sport to enhance the concept’s overall appeal further. The ‘Swift Sport’ lettering can also be found below the blackened headlamps on either side. The front grille also carries a dark theme as it gets a black finish alongside the fog lamp housing. It comprises of what appears to be carbon fibre air intakes.
The multi-spoke black alloy wheels with red callipers, rear diffuser kit with dual exhaust pipes, black integrated roof spoiler and dark themed tail lamps are other significant elements of the Swift Sport Yellow Rev concept. We do not know yet if any mechanical changes have been made.
The regular Swift Sport is powered by a 1.4-litre turbocharged Boosterjet engine good enough to produce a maximum power output of 140 PS and 230 Nm of peak torque. The performance-based variant has long been a distant dream for India and instead, we are expected to get RS-badged Swift using 1.0-litre Boosterjet engine from Baleno during the course of 2019.
