Suzuki Swift Hatchback (2020 - )

The Suzuki Swift is a stylish supermini that’s great fun to drive and comes with loads of equipment. What’s more, it's very affordable to buy. The iffy interior quality means it’s not perfect, but if you can look past that, it’ll be very appealing indeed. An update for the 2021 model year includes ’mild hybrid’ engines across the board, updated looks and increased standard safety tech but loses the perky turbocharged 1.0-litre engine option we liked so much in the process, leaving it one to look out for if you’re buying used.

Our expert review

See what our expert review team say about this car

Suzuki’s position as an affordable brand has taken a slight knock of late as its prices have crept up, denting its value proposition. The Swift is still considerably cheaper than a Ford Fiesta, Peugeot 208 or similar and its starting price is more or less on level pegging with the Nissan Micra. But the likes of the Hyundai i10 and Toyota Aygo from the segment below are a chunk less, so there are cheaper small cars out there if you’re buying on a budget.

In a recent update Suzuki has introduced ’mild hybrid’ technology as standard on all models. While this doesn’t mean the Swift can operate on purely electric power like ‘full’ or plug-in hybrids it does give the 1.2-litre engine a little helping hand and helps save fuel by increasing the scope of the start-stop system. The Swift is also available with a ‘CVT’ style automatic gearbox and even the option of Suzuki’s Allgrip branded all-wheel drive system should you need it. For running costs the two-wheel drive manual versions are the best, though, with the lowest CO2 and best fuel consumption.
