Good value and well equipped, great fun to drive, distinctive styling, economical diesel available, roomy cabin
Fairly small boot
It may lack the badge kudos of the Corsa or Clio but the Swift is a superb small car that is every bit the equal of more expensive hatchbacks. It's stylish and sporty looks mean it stands out from the crowd of usual suspects and with plenty of interior space along with a neat, well built cabin, it is also practical. The excellent ride means it's comfortable on the move but the best thing about the Swift is the handling - sharp and responsive it makes the little Suzuki great fun to drive in town and on the open road.
Affordable prices, generous equipment levels and a diesel option only add to the attractive package - in short it's one of the best small cars on sale.
