Why to love the Suzuki Swift

With so many supercars such as Ferraris and Porsches taking the spotlight, the Suzuki Swift keeps a relatively low profile in the world of automobiles, however it has been produced since 1983 and is still being developed, improved and manufactured to this day, it's continuation ensured by it's popularity worldwide.

In terms of value for money, the Suzuki Swift ticks a lot of boxes. It is the cheapest automatic car available in India. The engine can produce over 40 miles per gallon which enables one to fill up less and to get more distance out of their fuel than a lot of similar cars on the market such as the Ford Fiesta. It's cheap to initially purchase from $17,225 USD, and relatively reliable when it comes to maintaining the engine over time, keeping maintenance costs to a minimum.
For such a cheap car, the feel and build is not reflected in the price. Multiple users comment on the comfort of the interior during longer trips, even when they fill up the back seats of the three door with adults and children alike. Apart from the Suzuki Swift Sport, the Swift is cheap to insure, falling into the 11E group in the UK which, when compared to the Fiesta, is much more economic.
Considering it is equipped with a very modest 1.2 litre engine as standard, the Swift is incredibly quick and nimble, and when pushed around tight winding corners, often feels like driving a mini sports car with sharp steering, strong grip and smooth gear changes. The excellent suspension soaks up all of the unexpected bumps making a very smooth ride.
The Swift is still available with a manual gear box, while other manufacturers seem to focus on going fully automatic, although the automatic engine delivers even more milage to the gallon, reaching distances of up to 50.4 miles. There is an option to equip your Swift with Dualjet engine which lowers the running costs even more, even eliminating the need to pay road tax in certain countries.
One of the disadvantages of the Swift is the space. Being such a small car, manoeuvrability around tight city roads is not a problem and parking is child's play, but this does come at the sacrifice of a bit of comfort on the inside. For some taller users, the backseats might prove a little too tight, although some users have claimed this isn't a problem, and the high roof means you shouldn't encounter any problems with head room. Trying to fit larger amounts of luggage in the trunk can prove difficult with a capacity of just 211 cubic litres, particularly as most of the space is vertical so wider objects don't always fit.
After a crash test in 2010, the Swift was awarded a five star rating for safety and an impressive 94% score for occupancy protection. The car comes equipped with seven airbags, one even for the driver's knee. ESP and ABS are offered as standard on all models.
While not the most impressive car available, there are many reasons to love this little auto, particularly when you are trying to drive economically and for easy manoeuvring around tight city streets.
