Used Suzuki Swift (1992 - 2003) Comfort

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.

Head and legroom in the back is very tight - adults should only use the rear seats for short trips. The front passenger has adequate head and legroom, though not comparable with more modern cars. The seats do not offer enough support for longer trips.

Swift is large for a supermini, but cabin space is not particularly well used, giving a cramped feel. However, it does have a large boot, which is easy to access and the rear seats can be split/folded on most models to accommodate heavy or bulky loads.

Behind the wheel

Swift shows its age when it comes to the driving position. The driver sits close to the ground and the seats do not offer the support (except in early GS and GTi models which have bucket seats) expected from cars today. The steering wheel does not adjust. However, most of the switches and buttons are in logical positions and there's good all-round visibility.
