Suzuki Swift

(2017 - present)

The Suzuki Swift is a supermini-class small hatchback. The current model was launched in the UK in 2017.

There is a performance model called the Swift Sport that sites above the regular Swift range. We are building a separate page for this model, so check back soon.

The Suzuki Swift has received a wider range of review scores from the UK motoring media than most cars, ranging from ‘Don’t Buy’ recommendations from some media sources to outstanding results from others. The poorer reviews are largely due to the Swift’s relatively poor three-star safety rating in standard form (four stars for the top-spec SZ5 model) when many rival cars have five-star safety ratings.
