Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

Front space

Small on the outside and big on the inside is what Suzuki was aiming for with the Swift and up front, at least, they have succeeded. You’ll not be uncomfortably close to your front-seat passenger, and tall drivers can move their seat back a decent amount and lower it enough to have decent head room.

Storage is pretty much standard fare for the class. The door pockets are big enough to carry a 500ml bottle upright and the glovebox is a decent size. You also get a pair of cupholders, a smartphone-sized shelf and a tray behind the gear lever that’s perfect for loose change.

Seat folding and flexibility

Don’t expect anything special from the Swift here; the rear seats split and fold 60/40 as standard but that’s about as flexible as it gets. The rear seatbacks don’t recline to offer a more comfortable seating position or to increase boot space, and, once folded down, the rear seats leave a fairly pronounced step in the boot floor.

While every Swift has a height-adjustable driver’s seat, none offer adjustable lumbar support for either driver or passenger.
