Accessibility & Motability
Usability for people with disability or their carers
Motability - Access
The seat is height-adjustable, so you can sit from 585mm to 624mm above the ground. That’s higher than in most small cars, so if you’re after a high-riding driving position, the Swift is a good choice. The Citroën C3 and Peugeot 208 are also worth considering, though, because they put you even higher el doesn't adjust for reach unless you plump for the range-topping SZ5.
When it comes to loading up the boot, the 723mm height of the boot sill from the ground is broadly typical for a small car, but the 242mm drop from the sill to the boot floor is high, and might make loading and unloading harder.
Motability - Ease of use and options
As mentioned in the driving section, there is just one engine choice for the Swift: a 1.2-litre petrol with mild-hybrid assistance. It's available with two or four-wheel drive, but if you want an automatic gearbox, you’ll have to have 2WD (the Allgrip 4x4 is only available with a five-speed manual).
There are three specification levels: SZ-L, SZ-T and SZ5. In most respects, the basic model is well equipped, although oddly the steering wheel doesn't adjust for reach unless you plump for the range-topping SZ5.
