Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 44 - 44 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

With an expected list price of £14,500, Suzuki Swift Sport running costs are a veritable bargain for those wanting an exciting, well-spec’d hatchback.

Fuel economy of 44.1mpg on the combined cycle and mid-table road tax means it is fairly competitive with its rivals, while an insurance group of 19 out of 50 should ensure younger drivers can get in on the action too.

Service intervals are 9,000 miles so remember to factor that in when budgeting.

The new engine means lower Suzuki Swift Sport emissions in terms of CO2. They’ve dropped from 165g/km to 147g/km, which is extremely low for a sporty hatchback with a petrol engine.

Fuel economy is an impressive 44.1mpg on the combined cycle, up from 39.8mpg in the previous version.

There’s very little reason to question Suzuki Swift Sport reliability. There have been no major VOSA recalls of the previous models, and typical Japanese manufacturing standards are likely to mean there isn’t much cause for concern.
