The Suzuki Swift is by no means a class-leading small car for rear space, but it certainly offers a generous amount of room for adults: two will sit with their knees free of the front seatbacks and their heads some distance from the ceiling. That said, three adults side-by-side will struggle to stay comfortable on a long journey, and the rear windows could be a little deeper than they are to allow a better view out for rear passengers. It’s not outright claustrophobic, though.
All Swifts come with five doors, and Suzuki has placed the Swift’s rear door handles near the top of the door this time around. Happily, the rear doors open nice and wide to reveal very good access to the rear seats.
So, compared with a Fiat 500, or even Ford Fiesta, the Swift is more accommodating in the back, but rivals such as the Skoda Fabia do an even better job of ferrying rear passengers.
