What Car? says

4 out of 5 stars

For Powerful and great fun to drive, especially considering how inexpensive it is

Against Luggage space is limited, and the ride is firm and noisy when you're on the motorway

Verdict It's hard to beat as a fun car for not much cash

Go for… 1.5 GLX

Avoid… 1.3 diesel

Suzuki Swift Hatchback
  • 1. The cabin looks smart and classy; all the controls are simple to use
  • 2. The boot is small compared to other cars in this class
  • 3. The 1.3-litre engine is raucous at speed, but the 1.5 is better
  • 4. The sporty suspension is firm, and larger bumps can be heard thumping into the cabin
  • 5. Check engine, gearbox and clutch - the car's sporty feel means it may have been driven hard
