The Suzuki Swift is proof that motoring perfection doesn’t have to break the bank. Its combination of space, efficiency and state-of-the-art technology is to die for, and so is the drive. You can have your Swift with a turbocharged 1.0 Boosterjet engine or a 1.2 Dualjet petrol engine, with the Dualjet boasting ALLGRIP 4-wheel drive on top-spec SZ5 models. All versions are efficient and especially in hybrid form, with these engines utilising an ISG (Integrated Starter Motor) to improve efficiency. Choose from SZ3, SZ-T and SZ5 trim levels. SZ5 models boast satellite navigation, adaptive cruise control, keyless entry and start, automatic air con and rear electric windows.
You see it, you want it. The Swift is an alluring blend of sportiness and elegance, with a classless and desirable design. It stands out for the right reasons, and especially in SZ-T, SZ-5 and Attitude specification with 16” alloy wheels.
With nimble handling and flexible performance from a range of mild hybrid and Boosterjet petrol engines, the Swift is a rewarding way to get around. Top-spec SZ5 models come with adaptive cruise control to make life on the road easier.
It might look like a 3-door, but the Swift is actually a 5-door with clever recessed rear door handles. Inside, there’s space for five passengers and a 264-litre boot with 60-40 split-folding rear seats. So, feel free to go on those big shopping trips.
Living with it
The Swift is remarkably refined at higher speeds. At low speeds, it cruises around with a subtle ride. This makes it a pleasure on all journeys. SZ-T models onwards feature Bluetooth and smartphone linkage with Apple CarPlay & Android Auto.
