Advice for buyers

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

Check the rear bumper for any signs of parking damage because the Sport doesn’t come with parking sensors. You do get a colour reversing camera, but this gets covered in dirt quite easily which may obscure the view somewhat.

Make sure the brakes don’t judder when you try them on a test drive, otherwise you’ll need to budget for new ones.

Side curtain airbags

The side curtain airbags and seat belt pretensioners fitted to Swifts manufactured between 3 February 2017 and  13 February 2019 could deploy if one of the rear doors is slammed shut. Find out if your car is affected by this because it'll need to have a software update carried out to prevent this from happening.

The fuel tank is rather small at 37 litres which means that the range of the Swift is around 300 miles, which is not ideal for big trips.

Suzuki as a brand finished in a magnificent joint fifth place out of 32 manufactuers in our most recent What Car? Reliability Survey. The regular Swift did well, coming in joint seventh place out of 24 cars in the small car class.
