As stated in the comments, it's a lot cheaper to remove excess weight. If you use this car as a daily drive it's best to keep stuff like a spare tire and jack in your car..
Start with the easy stuff: a lot of people have a lot of stuff in their car that they'll never need. If you want to make the car even more lighter, you could opt to remove the rear seat and plastic panels. Keep in mind that driving with sharp edges on the inside of your car that might hurt you in an accident is illegal in Europe. Remove door trims, carpets and your glove box. Fill the tank of the car only half each time, ..
In case (which I doubt) you want to take this car on trackdays: replace your side and read windows by plexiglass, install a roll cage, lower the center of gravity, keep unsprung weight as low as possible, get to a 50/50 weight distribution, .. It'll be hilarious to see a Suzuki Splash on the track! :)
Remember: less weight = better fuel economy = faster car = more money for racing parts = even faster car!
