Advice for buyers

What should I look for in a used Suzuki Swift Sport hatchback?

Since the Swift Sport is a hot hatch that’s meant to be driven enthusiastically, you should inspect any used example thoroughly for signs of previous accident damage. Look for any mismatched paint or uneven panel gaps and pay for an HPI inspection to find out if the car has previously been written off.

Make sure also that the car has a full service history. While Suzuki does incredibly well in reliability surveys (it finished top of the pile in our most recent Reliability Survey), you’ll want some assurance that the car has been looked after correctly, particularly if the previous owner has thrashed it a bit.
