Alternatives

What alternatives should I consider to a used Suzuki Swift Sport hatchback?

Similarly hot rivals that are of equivalent size and performance to the Suzuki Swift Sport are few and far between. The Renault Twingo RS 133 is perhaps the closest alternative. As mentioned previously, the Twingo has sharper handling when equipped with its optional Cup chassis, but its harsh ride and smaller dimensions make it less practical and more tiring as an everyday car.

Recently, Volkswagen produced a hotter version of its Up, called the Up GTI. The trouble is that because it is so new, you’ll have to pay a lot more money to bag even the earliest example.
