Ownership cost

What used Suzuki Swift hatchback will I get for my budget?

Prices for a used Suzuki Swift at the time of writing start at around £6000 for a 2017 example with a high mileage. Increase your budget to £8000 or more and you'll be able to bag yourself a mild-hybrid version with average mileage. 

The four-wheel drive version is rare and will cost you more to buy. Expect to spend at least £9500 to secure one.

How much does it cost to run a Suzuki Swift hatchback?

MPG

All models have strong fuel economy figures, with only the automatic 1.0 petrol dipping below 60mpg.

The 109bhp 1.0 hybrid has a combined economy figure of 65.7mpg – exactly the same as the entry-level 89bhp 1.2 petrol. If you go for the 1.2 fitted with the Allgrip four-wheel drive system, economy drops to 62.8mpg. The 1.0 without hybrid assistance has an average figure of 61.4mpg, or 56.5mpg with the six-speed automatic.

Car tax (VED)

Most Swifts will be charged the current flat-rate fee per year to tax, but models that come with the SHVS hybrid system qualify for a small discount due to it being an alternative-fuel vehicle. To find out more about the current road tax costs, click here.

Servicing costs

Servicing costs are in line with rivals and you can even take out a service plan that covers three years' worth of maintenance costs on any Suzuki model up to six years of age.
