Suzuki Swift Overview

The Suzuki Swift is classed as a supermini or subcompact and is produced by the Japanese car manufacturing company Suzuki. This car was a replacement for the Suzuki Cultus and was first produced in 2000, and is still in production to this day. These cars are cheap both to buy and run; they handle really well but are not as accomplished or refined as some of the class leaders. They are well equipped and have good safety features. Write your personal review for this car in the comments box.

Suzuki Swift History

The first generation (2000-04) could also be known as the Suzuki Ignis in parts of Europe and this car used the new Suzuki M family engines. This car was a front wheel drive but was also available as four wheel drive.

The second generation (2004-10) version looked to move away from the cheap alternative of the supermini class and made this a sportier version than its predecessor. This car was more successful than envisaged across most world markets and its safety design scored 4 out of 5 stars in Euro safety tests.

The third generation (2010 - ) is slightly larger than its predecessor and rounder in design. It is still based on the successful second generation version and is the current version in production.



Fuel Economy

This car has been available in the following engine sizes: 1.2, 1.3, 1.4, 1.5 and 1.6L in petrol, with the 1.3 and 1.5L being available in diesel. The most economical of the available engines has been the 1.3 diesel which offers up to 67mpg. The 1.2 petrol engine offers up to 56mpg which is really good for a petrol engine.
