New Suzuki Swift on sale in June
New small car will be sold alongside the larger and more expensive Baleno, to expand Suzuki's line-up of good-value superminis
A total of five models will be available, giving customers the choice of three trim levels and 1.0- or 1.2-litre engines. As such, the Swift will be looking to attract the same kind of buyers as the Seat Ibiza and Mazda 2, and will be sold alongside Suzuki’s other small hatchback, the Baleno, which is a larger and more practical – as well as more expensive – car.
The three trim levels are all good value and well equipped, and even the basic SZ3 comes with six airbags, air-conditioning, Bluetooth connectivity and a DAB radio. Stepping up to SZ-T adds alloy wheels, front foglights and a rear-view camera, while the top SZ5 models have climate control, sat-nav, keyless entry and start, and rear electric windows.
At the most expensive end of the range, buyers can also specify an automatic gearbox – but only with the 1.0-litre engine and SZ5 trim – and four-wheel drive is available with the 1.2-litre engine.
That means that, for the whole range (which goes on sale on June 1st), prices run from £10,999 to £15,499; and, for a comprehensive analysis of the new Swift, read our full expert review.
