Yes. Excellent trade-in for previous car, better than Audi/Skoda main dealers were offering for more expensive cars.

Owned previous Swift Sport 3-door 5-speed version. Wife didnt like 3-door version and wanted 5-door instead.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Very good, although not as quick thru the gears as the previous version, probably due to higher overall gearing. Cornering at 1st doesn't seem to be as good as previous version, but it is. Just softer suspension than previous model. Quieter than previous model. Seats are a big improvement over previous model.

What's it like to park?
Easy enough though rear parking sensors would be an improvement. Gotta be careful not to kerb the wheels.
