Suzuki Swift Sport
Quicker, stronger, and more powerful than its standard model sibling, the Suzuki Swift Sport is a hugely impressive car that has the credentials to match any other hot hatch currently available. Streetwise styling in the form of a racy body kit, twin exhausts, and 17-inch alloy wheels make an instant impression, which is echoed on the inside with supportive sport seats. The Suzuki Swift Sport can reach 62mph in just 8.7 seconds on its way to a top speed of 121mph, but still manages to produce 44 MPG thanks to an ultra-efficient 1.6-litre engine. Along with superb acceleration in a straight line, the Swift Sport also delivers in the corners, with sharp sheering, stiff suspension, and very little body roll.
The exterior is low and dramatic, with chunky 17-inch alloy wheels, a rear spoiler and twin exhausts. Rear privacy glass and automatically adjusting HID headlamps are also standard. Inside, it features sleek styling, sports seats and a leather-covered steering wheel.
The 1.6-litre engine makes this car quick off the mark, and the six-speed manual gearbox is highly responsive. The precise suspension adds to the excellent handling; and with cruise control and ABS, this car is easy and fun to drive.
The Swift Sport is packed with innovative storage solutions and a boot capacity of 211 litres, which increases to 512 litres with the rear seats folded. The cabin comfortably seats four adults, and ISOFIX child seat fittings come as standard.
Living with it
Practical, economical and fast, the Swift Sport is an excellent supermini. If the drive isn’t enough entertainment, it also features a CD tuner, DAB radio, Bluetooth and USB connectivity. This car offers speed and safety in a stylish, compact package.
