The Suzuki Swift has slowly and steadily earned itself a reputation as a value-for-money low-cost car that's good fun to drive. Fortunately for Suzuki, this version introduced in 2010 continues with those traits while adding a little bit of extra quality.

Comfort

A comfortable seat isn’t always easy to come by in a low-cost small hatchback, but this isn’t the case with the Swift. This brings Suzuki Swift comfort up to large-car levels. The front seats offer plenty of support – thanks to the side cushions – and make long journeys easy to deal with without feeling crumpled up by the end of it. In the back there's a decent amount of legroom even for taller passengers.

There is space for three in the rear but only for short journeys or if you are carrying small children.

Practicality

This is the Swift’s only real downfall. While buyers don’t expect huge amounts of bootspace when it comes to small hatchback, the 211 litres on offer is almost laughable and will just about carry two weekend bags. The rear seats do split 60/40 which is useful for when you need to carry larger items. There are also plenty of other practical touches with a number of cubbies and cup holders dotted around the car.

Behind the wheel

It’s hardly going to win any design awards, but the interior of the Swift is functional and easy to use. The upgraded stereo systems are easy figure out as are the air conditioning controls. Some of the plastics look cheap but overall it's not bad and you certainly don't feel like you are sitting in a budget car.
