The Suzuki Swift design barely changed from when it was launched in 1992, to when it finally went out of production in 2003. It's a bit old fashioned, with a cramped interior, few modern safety features and dated looks, but makes a case for itself as a cheap, economical and reliable runabout.

Buying used

Early model choice is limited - just GS (available in blue or white), GTi (red, blue or black) or the five-door GLX (white, red, grey, green and blue). The range was expanded in 1995 with the addition of a new 1.0 engine, new trims and more adventurous colours. GTi models in good condition are now few and far between - expensive parts prohibit thorough maintenance.

1.0 models are most popular with buyers because they're cheap and economical. Go for as later model as possible, as they're now very affordable.

Selling

Tempts buyers looking for cheap and cheerful motoring. But it needs to be well specced and well maintained.
