Suzuki Swift (92-03)

Value

5 out of 5

Early cars can be found for £500 or less, get the best you can afford, unmolested unmodified if possible. Dealer costs can be high but most parts available pattern(4x lockheed discs and pads £100!)

Costs

4 out of 5

38 mpg me driving, 45mpg with the wife at the wheel. Insurance can be high at group 12 so shop around.
