Suzuki Swift Review

The Suzuku Swift first came out in 1983 and was succeeded by several variations of the original. Its former lives included the Geo Metro, Maruti 100, Suzuki Forsa, Subaru Justy, and the Pontiac Firefly. The latest Swift has gone a long way from its many origins. Although externally it looks no different from the previous generations, the advancements are found in its performance and range capabilities. 

Pros

Although the latest Swift has a longer wheelbase by 50mm, its width and height have only increased slightly in size. This retains the familiar originality of the previous designs, but the latest model includes subtle additions such as lamp clusters, cleaner detailing, and a bustier dashboard. Another subtle variation is the grille found within the bonnet’s leading edge and larger sized headlights. The overall weight is lessened with the removal of a radiator. The result is a 1.5kg lighter, which is also from the vehicle’s plastic cooling fan shroud instead of the original steel material.

The Swift’s boxy yet tall shape can be attributed to the Black A-pillars. As a standard, all models come with tinted glass on the electric rear side windows. The rear lights stand out as the new design’s only distinct feature, having a clear inset panel that varies from the all-red clusters in the previous generation.

The interior treats passengers to a spacious cabin. The front room offers enough space to make the driver comfortable and the seat with ample legroom. The rear also provides enough space for both the feet and legs; plus the cushion works well to achieve thigh support.

Cons

Headroom is the downside to the Swift’s interior space. Only about four passengers can be accommodated if everyone is to have a comfortable ride. The boot also lacks some serious space: at 204-litres, there is little room even with the tailgate released and the rear seats split. Single drivers who need the boot space will have to consider if they are willing to compromise boot space for passengers’ leg room.

The cabin’s finish is just as disappointing. The use of hard-feel plastics in most parts (save for the carpet and seats) deters the interior’s overall look. There is also a serious lack of colour, with only red details on the instruments adding a slight aesthetic variation. Your only other option is a dull looking grey-black interior.

Although the 1.2-litre petrol engine delivers high power, its capability isn’t for the regular buyer. The vehicle shines when it starts at 4000rpm due to its namesake, but at 4800 rpm there’s still the need to use the gearbox after revving it. There’s slick shift that would please avid drivers but regular individuals will suffer from the inconvenience. This type of gearing is typical for small engines, and drivers should anticipate having to stir the gearbox as they drive. Its performance peaks as it reaches 60mph in just 11.6 seconds, but we can’t overlook how it goes from 30 to 50 mph in 10.5 seconds. The engine could also use more low-down tug despite its higher gears performance at low speeds.

Suzuki Swift

                In the year 2000, the Japanese multinational manufacturer of automobiles, Suzuki Motor Corporation, created a subcompact car that was called the Suzuki Swift. This was a successor of the Suzuki Cultus, a supermini or B-segment car that is produced since 1983. The Swift is merely a badge engineered version of the Cultus, which was created as a three door hatchback, a five door hatchback, a two door convertible, and a four door sedan.

                The first generation Swift was marketed in the years 2000 until 2004, and it was also called Suzuki Ignis for markets outside of Japan. This has several body styles including a three door hatchback and a five door hatchback, and transmissions such as a four speed automatic and a five speed manual is also available. The second generation was produced in 2004 until 2010, and it was assembled in several places including Japan, Malaysia, Indonesia, China, Pakistan, India, and Hungary. This version is in a three door hatchback, five door hatchback, and four door sedan body styles, and it follows a front engine, four wheel drive layout.

                The latest version of the Suzuki Swift is produced in Japan, Hungary, Thailand, and India since the year 2010, and this is available as a five door hatchback and four door sedan. It has more available transmissions including a four speed automatic, five speed and six speed manual, and a continuously variable transmission. Other versions of the Swift include the Suzuki Swift Sport which was manufactured since 2012 and the Suzuki Swift Sport SZ-R, which was released in the United Kingdom and has only 100 units.
