Which used Suzuki Swift hatchback should I buy?
Petrol Suzuki Swifts come in both three- and five-door guises, but the diesel only came to market with five doors. While the diesel is capable of impressive economy it’s a slightly lacklustre unit, so we’d stick with a petrol, which also happen to be in more plentiful supply.
The automatic transmission (only available with the 1.2 petrol) saps a fair bit of performance and economy so unless you must have an auto we’d go for the manual gearbox.
There are three trim levels to choose from starting with SZ2, which offers traction control, electric front windows, remote central locking, and a radio/CD with a USB port. SZ3 adds air con and larger alloys while the SZ4 has climate control, Bluetooth with music streaming, cruise control and automatic headlights. The Sport is similarly specified to the SZ4 but with chunkier styling, bigger alloys and racier seats.
The 2013 facelift brought some subtle styling revisions and a modicum of extra equipment. This was followed in 2015 by the 1.2 Dualjet petrol engine with its sub-100g/km CO2 output.
