The Suzuki Swift majors on value for money; if you want a city runabout with decent interior space and a perky engine, it is far from a bad choice. However, it can’t match key rivals for interior quality or ride quality, performance and safety, while refinement could be improved.

Only one trim level is available with the Swift Sport, but that’s no problem because it comes packed with the sort of kit that’s reserved for the options list of many rivals.

It might not be the most potent hot hatch, but this little 1.4 still loves to rev. Plus, it has plenty of mid-range turbocharged grunt to pull you out of tight corners with verve. We found it to be swifter in our own tests than its rather pedestrian sounding 9.1sec 0-62mph time would suggest.
