The Hottest Hatch?
Suzuki's popular hot hatch underwent a model change in 2017, receiving a revamped body and a 140hp 1.4-liter turbocharged engine driving the front wheels. This R/C model assembly kit depicts that car, with a polycarbonate body to recreate the stylish Swift sport form. A full set of stickers is included to recreate details across the body, and the model is based upon the proven M-05 chassis.

|M-05: Low Center of Gravity, High Performance!
The front wheel drive M-05 chassis features a lightweight, narrow, durable, and easy-assembly semi-monocoque resin frame. Gearbox, motor, battery pack, receiver, servo and ESC are positioned for optimum weight distribution and a low center of gravity. Ground-hugging 4-wheel independent double wishbone suspension and the 3-piece steering linkage provide stable high-speed cornering. 5-spoke wheels are molded in black and have tires with realistic tread patterns and inner sponge. In this kit, the chassis is setup with the 239mm L wheelbase.
