Suzuki Swift Hatchback 1.3 DDiS SZ3 5d (2012/62) - Owner Review

The size of the boot is almost laughable but you don't buy a swift for the luggage capacity! The car is just so easy to drive it makes up for anything else.

Franchised

Did you buy this car new?

What price did you pay?
£10,995

When did you buy the car?
November 2012

Did you get a good deal and why?
Got a good deal from the dealer, second car from them, and always get treated well. car is serviced by them as well. Good advert for them if learners like the swift, then they go and buy one when passed their test!

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
Had a swift previously for my driving school car, and was very impressed. This time I went for the diesel and so far its been no trouble at all. Fuel economy is important when you do 30000 miles a year, I am getting 59 mpg teaching learners!

What was the dealer like?
Very professional, nice showroom, made you feel welcome and always happy to help.

Driving it

5 out of 5

Very good to drive, very responsive engine, plenty of power pulling away, grips the road really well at speed, very economical.

What's it like to park?
Very easy to park, but then i do teach parallel parking!

Living with it

5 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Had the swift nearly two years now and never let me down. Always serviced when it needs it, 9000 miles might seem too close but changing oil regularly makes sense to me.

What's most practical about your car?
The size of the boot is almost laughable but you don't buy a swift for the luggage capacity! The car is just so easy to drive it makes up for anything else.
