This car has been superseded by a newer model, click here to go to the latest Suzuki Swift Hatchback review.

Parkers overall rating: 1.5 out of 5 1.5

Swift shows its age when it comes to the driving position. The driver sits close to the ground and the seats do not offer the support (except in early GS and GTi models which have bucket seats) expected from cars today. The steering wheel does not adjust. However, most of the switches and buttons are in logical positions and there’s good all-round visibility.

Head and legroom in the back is very tight – adults should only use the rear seats for short trips. The front passenger has adequate head and legroom, though not comparable with more modern cars. The seats do not offer enough support for longer trips.
