Suzuki Swift 1.0 GC 5d (1995/M) - Owner Review

3-cylinder engine is very entertaining: it emits an enthusiastic thrum which makes it sound like a much more powerful car. Very nippy considering the small size of the engine and 5th gear excellent for motorway cruising. Only downside: jarring ride!

Value

5 out of 5

If purchased second-hand, you can really take advantage of the fast rate at which this car depreciates and make a super saving compared to other similarly-sized cars.

Costs

4 out of 5

Excellent fuel economy, but parts pricey when they are needed (which is not very often).

Performance

5 out of 5

For this size of engine, you cannot complain. Very nippy, can hold its own on a motorway and super economy.

Reliability

5 out of 5

Very dependable. Will not let you down as long as you maintain it.

Image

3 out of 5

Anonymous image, appreciated only by the discerning few. 3-door looks a lot more sporty than the 5 door. GTi and Sky editions do have street credibility. Colour choice can make all the difference.

Comfort

4 out of 5

Seats very comfortable, let down only by a harsh ride.

As good as any other for this age. Anonymity means this isn't on the car thieves' lists.

Thoroughly competent.
