Suzuki has beefed up its popular Swift supermini with a new special edition called Attitude.
This version of the Swift gets racier looks and high levels of standard equipment, and is positioned as an option for ‘younger buyers who may perhaps be looking to aspire to the Sport in the future’.

The Swift Attitude is based on the existing SZ3 specification, which includes air conditioning, DAB radio with Bluetooth, rear privacy glass, a leather steering wheel and LED daytime running lights.
Attitude adds two-tone 16-inch alloy wheels, front fog lamps, a mesh front grille, a rear spoiler and carbon-effect trim around the car’s exterior.
Powering the Swift Attitude is Suzuki’s naturally-aspirated 1.2-litre four-cylinder petrol engine. It produces 90hp and 120Nm, with that power sent to the front wheels via a five-speed manual gearbox.
As a result, the 0-60mph sprint is covered in 11.7 seconds with a top speed of 112mph possible. Suzuki claims it can return 61.4mpg on the combined cycle, while emitting 106g/km of CO2.
The standard no-cost colour option is Fervent Red, while you can choose from Pure White, Premium Silver, Super Black, Mineral Grey or Burning Red for an additional £485.
Now on sale, the Suzuki Swift Attitude is available from £13,499. The firm is also offering a 0% PCP finance deal on the hatch to support the new model, which includes a £500 manufacturer contribution.
