Remember the Swift S Concept we reported about last month? Well, Suzuki has now unveiled the sporty looking concept car at the 2011 Geneva Auto Show.
The S-Concept could be the successor to the Swift Sport sold globally. However, there’s no need to get all excited about it just yet. For now, Suzuki maintains the S-Concept will remain a design study. Moreover, the next-generation Swift Sport production model could be far better (read sportier) from the S-Concept.

Last month, Suzuki had released some sketches of the S-Concept ahead of the Geneva Motor Show. And now take a look at the car’s official photos. Must say the yellow colour does look good on the Swift! We are not too kicked about the rest of the car, however – looks like someone took a normal Suzuki Swift to the local modification shop and added on a bunch of stuff!
The S-Concept is essentially a beefed-up Swift Sports, with bold front grille, smoky tinted double deck headlamps, and large fog lamps with silver grilles, big 5-spoke 18-inch alloy wheels, Brembo brake calipers, large roof spoiler and rear diffuser with twin pipes.
On the inside, the S-Concept has black and yellow leather Recaro sports seats. The steering and gear lever also have leather sports cover. The foot well has metallic pedals and the dashboard is attractive with piano black surfaces.
Suzuki has not given power and torque details, except that it is powered by the same 1.6-litre engine that does duty on the Swift Sport. The only difference is that the engine is mated to a 6-speed manual transmission.
Suzuki is tight-lipped about the launch of the next-generation Swift Sport, which is under development and could feature a few design elements from the S-Concept as well. Expect the new Swift Sport to be launched in 2012. There is a 2011 Suzuki Swift for India undergoing testing right now which does not look too different from the current version of the car.
