Running costs

With an expected list price of £14,500, Suzuki Swift Sport running costs are a veritable bargain for those wanting an exciting, well-spec’d hatchback.

Fuel economy of 44.1mpg on the combined cycle and mid-table road tax means it is fairly competitive with its rivals, while an insurance group of 19 out of 50 should ensure younger drivers can get in on the action too.

Service intervals are 9,000 miles so remember to factor that in when budgeting.
