The Auto Trader expert verdict:
Available new from £29,599
The Swace is a mid-sized, hybrid-powered estate car sold by Suzuki as part of a partnership with Toyota. If you’re thinking it looks familiar that’s because it is basically a rebadged version of the latter’s Corolla Touring Sports, which is actually no bad thing given the Toyota is a decent, practical and frugal car. Buddying up with Toyota means Suzuki can offer the hybrid technology it needs in the range, and the Swace is priced competitively against its Corolla brother and comes with lots of equipment. The lack of built-in navigation and a shorter warranty are the only real compromises compared with the Toyota.
Reasons to buy:
- Efficient hybrid engine
- Comfortable and refined
