This car has been superseded by a newer model, click here to go to the latest Suzuki Swift Hatchback review.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

The Swift performed well in Euro NCAP crash tests, receiving the maximum of five stars. With seven airbags and stability control as standard across the whole range, the Suzuki Swift safety is impressive.

This is the Swift’s only real downfall. While buyers don’t expect huge amounts of bootspace when it comes to small hatchback, the 211 litres on offer is almost laughable and will just about carry two weekend bags. The rear seats do split 60/40 which is useful for when you need to carry larger items. There are also plenty of other practical touches with a number of cubbies and cup holders dotted around the car.
