Suzuki Swift Hatchback (10-17)


4 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
A bit younger than I look.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Family liked the silver and bronze two tone paintwork and said it looked sporty and fun.

Would you buy this car again and why?
Had the Swift on loan, liked the way it drove and its low running costs, but stuffy without aircon and difficult to get comfortable. Splash is a better car for a taller person and cheaper.

What are you likely to buy next?
New shape Ford Fiesta, Suzuki Splash or SEAT Ibiza are on my list.
