Suzuki Swift Print Print this page


"The latest generation Swift builds on the strengths of the old model. It's refined, comfortable and good to drive. It has the broadest appeal of all the superminis." The New Suzuki Swift, 2010 Supermini Road Test Winner against Hyundai i20 and Mazda 1.3 TS2. Auto Express

"I liked it. I also liked the handling, the ride, the driving position, and most of all, the look and feel of the interior. From behind the wheel, you'd guess this was a £15,000 car. And you'd be wrong. Because it's actually £2500 less than that." Jeremy Clarkson, 31 October, 2010. The Sunday Times.

Suzuki could have called this total gem of a car the Lexus Swift. It's that good. The quality and silence of the ride could easily belong to a bigger and more expensive car." George Fowler, 17 December, 2010. The Daily Star

Philip Petersen's skinny on the new Swift:

It's still obviously recognisable from the previous generation which dominated the supermini market, yet inside it's undergone a revolution in refinement and technological evolution. From the high fuel return and low emissions all new 1.2 engine, to the class-leading comfort, this car is truly a car to fall in love with; at least we have.
