The Suzuki Swift Sport is not the most outrageously styled hot hatch on sale, but it has several other key attributes in its favour.
It comes with a standard kit list that puts many larger and more expensive cars to shame, with Bluetooth, metallic paint, folding mirrors and seven airbags all included.
Considering that its list price is keenly positioned at 13,749, it is an absolute bargain once you take our Target Price into account. We reckon that you should be able to get behind the wheel of a brand-new Swift Sport for just 11,610.
Consumer editor Emma Butcher has spent the past 12 months living with a Swift Sport, and has taken it on a variety of long and short jaunts in that time.
Here she gives her verdict on the standout elements of the small hot hatch, both good and bad.
