2012 Suzuki Swift Sport sure looks like fun

Suzuki has been lucky enough to have a Swift offering in their product range here in Canada despite their poor sales figures as of late. However the Swift we get here does not compare to the Sport model that Suzuki presented in Frankfurt.
The Swift Sport was first previewed by the S-Concept that debuted back in Geneva, but now packs 134 horsepower and 118 pound-feet of torque routed to the front wheels via a six-speed manual transmission. Those aren't earth-shattering numbers, but in a vehicle this tiny (and lightweight), we imagine it to be pretty engaging from behind the wheel. Think Mazda2, but more powerful.
Other enhancements to the Swift Sport include a stiffer suspension and more aggressive stance, rounded out by a handsome set of 17-inch wheels. All in, we'd gladly throw the Sport around an autocross course or some curvy canyons... if it ever makes its way to Canada.
