    Hello people. I am tempted to get the Suzuki Swift Sport. A bit pricey though. I never really 'felt' the car before and so yesterday I went for a test drive in the Suzuki Ipoh branch.

    Unfortunately they only have the normal 1.5l auto ones, so I decided to test drive that. The handling is very good.. Power is quite bad I think..

    I need to ask everyone here. Is Swift Sport worth the extra 30k over the normal Swift?
    With additional RM30,000, you will get:
    - Sporty bodykit
    - 16inch 5lug rims
    - Twin pipe exhaust system (they claimed to have a better flow, any prove?)
    - Rear disc brakes
    - Red colored interior with sporty seats
    - Extra 100cc engine ( will the 0.1l makes the car powerful?)
    - Most importantly is the MANUAL g/b

    so it is worth the extra 30k?

    fyi, i'm 23 and still single. so luggage space isn't a big issue for me. i'm just worried bout the power of SSS... can the normal 1.5l with minor mods(filters, exhaust, plugs, adjustables, etc..) tapau the SSS?

    I would suggest you take the 1.6L S/Sport version, no point trying to mod the 1.5L to be like 1.6L, just plain waste of your time,it just too troublesome to mod the 1.5L from this horse power 101(74)/6,000 to this horsepower 125(92)/6,800,trying to squezze extra 24 horsepower with a bolt on turbo,it just ain't worth it, soon it will destroy your engine too. Better get the 1.6L straight away, I say its worth it.

    thank you so much for your opinion.. i never tested a SSS, thats why i don't know the difference between the 1.6 and 1.5.

    although 1.5 and 1.6 the chassic look the same but is a totally 2 different car.

    different engine, different chassic, different brake system, different safety system, different suspension, different seat, different gearbox.

    Is better to get a manual 1.6 then a 1.6 AT. the 1.6 AT is having the same gearbox as 1.5.

    bolting on a turbo on to 1.5 AT will kill your AT gearbox. repair it will cost more then rm6k.

    there are quite a number of performance engines parts is out for NA, which can match with a moderate modify b16a. not talking about those heavy modify b16a

    M16A is the engine code for swift sport. B16A is the engine code for Honda EG6 or EK4.

    there are camshafts release in japan that can push the rev over 8k rpm and about 155-160 bhp. i guess soon we will see swift sport doing above 160bhp on NA.
