Suzuki Swift Hatchback 1.3 SZ3 3d (2010/10) - Owner Review

For me is got to be the miles per gallon. It averages about 41 mpg which is twice as much as my KA. My fuel cost per month has practically halved and the tax is also half the cost.

Summary

5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
I like my car to look a bit sporty and eye catching. It has to have nice looking alloy wheels and a spoiler on the back.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Some people think it looks like a little rally car because of the black stripes.

Would you buy this car again and why?
Yes definitely, love everything about the Swift and don't have anything negative to say.

What are you likely to buy next?
Maybe another SZ3 or even an SZ4.

Buying experience

5 out of 5

Type of dealer you bought from?
Independent

Did you buy this car new?
Used

What price did you pay?
£5,100

When did you buy the car?
September 2014

Did you get a good deal and why?
Yes, they refurbished the alloy wheels and polished the paintwork as they were a few scratches on it. They also gave me 6 months tax and parts and labour cover.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
My Ford KA Sport was nearly 10 years old and it was time for me to buy a newer car which would be more economical for me to run.

What was the dealer like?
They were friendly and most helpful when I was unable to use my new car when the tax had expired. The car couldn't be taxed as the paperwork hadn't been received from DVLA so they gave me another car to use until the paperwork had been received.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
The swift is a dream to drive. It's very nippy for a 1.3 engine. This worried me before I bought it as the KA was a 1.6 but I'm happy with my purchase. It's great around town although I do get a little bit more from the fuel on longer journeys. Don't have any problems going up hills and always feel safe and secure whilst driving the car.

What's it like to park?
Never had any problems parking the Swift and can park in most spaces.

Living with it

5 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
No the car runs really well and its everything I expected it to be and more.

What's most practical about your car?
For me is got to be the miles per gallon. It averages about 41 mpg which is twice as much as my KA. My fuel cost per month has practically halved and the tax is also half the cost.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
I love that it has got an MP 3 player. It also shows the average miles per gallon, and the temperature, I didn't have these features in my KA. The swift also has extra air bags which is an added safety bonus.
