    My car

    Good fun if not a little choppy. 1.5 vvti (toyota) engine doesnt feel any quicker than 1.3. Good looking car, slightly cheap inside. Keyless starter knob thing is just nasty plastic made by fisher price! I like it but not enough to buy one. May have opted for the diesel if it had been slightly cheaper (1.3 ddis engine is a very good Fiat engine by the way!) And, will the name Suzuki Swift ever be credited as being cool?

    My car

    Looks decent, big improvement from a company on the up. 1.3 and 1.5 engines dont feel any different for power (havnt had the pleasure of driving the 1.6 lunatic). Interior still feels a little chatty and rattley. 1.3's lack of spec slightly lets it down but in todays times, its a cheap new car (and its Japenese so it should last!)

    My car

    I bought my 57 reg GL 6 weeks ago as an ex-demo with approx 3k miles on the clock. I have been really impressed in every way, particularly with fuel economy, which is very good. It nips along both around town and on the motorway. Really happy so far!

    My car

    Bought this car (GLX 1.5 Auto) 4 weeks ago based on the reviews by Whatcar/Autotrader. I was not disappointed. Amazing car for the price. Looks good, handles great in the city and the motorway. Very comfortable and great view. Very, very nippy. Love it! I would recommend this as the best supermini by far. Tried the Vauxhall Corsa and Nissan Micra. They're no match as far as I'm concerned.
