Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

Like the standard car, the Swift Sport is a fairly practical five-door hatchback. And thanks to a high roofline and relatively decent rear leg room (at least compared with the Volkswagen Up GTI and Abarth 595), front and rear passengers won’t feel short on space. It’s also worth pointing out that unlike the four-seat Volkswagen Up GTI and Abarth 595, the Swift is a more practical five-seater.

Unfortunately, flexibility and boot space are some way behind the competition, though. The seats fold with a 60/40 arrangement as standard, but that’s about as flexible as the seats get. And despite the boot being larger than that in the previous model, it’s still smaller than that in the Ford Fiesta ST and does without the Up GTI’s useful adjustable height boot floor.

You can read more about the Swift’s interior layout in our review of the standard car.
