Suzuki Australia has launched 100 units of a limited edition Swift Sport dubbed the Red Devil. Based on the company’s newest version of their popular hot hatch, the Red Devil adds a number of sportier details for customers who are looking for a more outlandish look for their Swift Sport.

The company has also launched driveaway pricing for the regular Swift Sport, with the six-speed manual priced from $27,990 drive away, and the six-speed automatic from $29,990 drive away. The Swift Sport Red Devil will be in dealerships from July, and will be priced from $29,156 drive away.

Announcing the limited edition Red Devil pack alongside new drive away pricing for the Swift Sport Turbo, Suzuki Australia General Manager – Automobile, Michael Pachota said the announcement was a great addition to the hot hatch line-up.

“A true testament to an incredibly hot hatch, the Swift Sport has been a great success since its launch in January this year; owning motoring media reviews and comparisons alike as one of the best bang-for-buck sports hatches in Australia. The Red Devil offers a hot new colour accentuated with an awesome carbon styled decal pack that really brings out the aggressive design cues of the Swift Sport”
