Suzuki is planning to unveil the Swift S-Concept at the upcoming 2011 Geneva Motor Show. The S-Concept is based on the European Swift that the company began marketing in autumn 2010.

Suzuki says the Swift S-Concept will be ‘more sporty and exciting’. The official preview of the rendered Swift S-Concept shows a performance-oriented design with a rally car-like body, muscular fenders, projector headlamps, large fog lamps and roof spoiler.

Details of the S-Concept will be announced by Suzuki on March 1st, 2011. Suzuki is also planning to exhibit the Swift, Splash, Alto, Kizashi, Jimny, Grand Vitara and SX4 at the Geneva Motor Show. The Swift S concept will also throw clues about the next-generation Swift Sport, which is already undergoing development according to sources.

Speculations suggest the 2012 Swift Sport will have a 1.6-litre, M16A, inline 4-cylinder engine that produces 123 hp apart from a 1.5-litre M15A, inline-4 engine. Other mechanical upgrades include improved front-wheel suspension, enhanced steering feedback for sportier feel and a lightweight body. There are chances that Suzuki may sell the limited RS Swift Sport alongside the 2011 Swift range.

The company may likely unveil the FZ Swift Sport at the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show in December. The Suzuki Splash, to be showcased at Switzerland’s auto show, will have a more powerful 93 bhp, 1.2 VVT engine sourced from the Swift. Suzuki claims a mileage of 55.4 mpg and the engine’s emission has been brought down to 119 g/km. Read related story: Suzuki Splash launched in India as Ritz

    [...] 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.
