This car has been superseded by a newer model, click here to go to the latest Suzuki Swift Hatchback review.

Parkers overall rating: 4 out of 5 4.0

It’s hardly going to win any design awards, but the interior of the Swift is functional and easy to use. The upgraded stereo systems are easy figure out as are the air conditioning controls. Some of the plastics look cheap but overall it’s not bad and you certainly don’t feel like you are sitting in a budget car.

A comfortable seat isn’t always easy to come by in a low-cost small hatchback, but this isn’t the case with the Swift. This brings Suzuki Swift comfort up to large-car levels. The front seats offer plenty of support – thanks to the side cushions – and make long journeys easy to deal with without feeling crumpled up by the end of it. In the back there’s a decent amount of legroom even for taller passengers.

There is space for three in the rear but only for short journeys or if you are carrying small children.
