Suzuki Swift in Colchester Essex
The Swift changes the affordable car game with a premium specification and an impressive mild hybrid engine. The 1.2 Dualjet mild hybrid engine is offered with a manual or CVT automatic gearbox and SZ5 versions have the option of ALLGRIP four-wheel drive. The 12v hybrid system recovers energy from braking and uses it to boost acceleration and increase stop-start efficiency. All models have adaptive cruise control for stress-free cruising, high beam assist, and Radar Brake Support for automatic collision mitigation.
Trims include SZ-L, SZ-T, and SZ5. SZ-T adds Lane departure warning and Lane departure prevention, traffic sign recognition, rear parking sensors, a 7” touchscreen with Smartphone link with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, and 16” alloy wheels. SZ5 boasts a rear parking camera, keyless entry and start, electric rear windows, automatic air conditioning, power-folding door mirrors, and 16” polished alloy wheels. All this is wrapped up in a sleek, sporty body that turns heads everywhere it goes.
Sporty and distinctive, the Swift stands out with LED projector headlights, hidden rear door handles and black window pillars. You can also specify three new exterior dual-tone colours and a wide range of personalisation options.
The Swift’s mild hybrid engine returns 52.3mpg, 55.3mpg or 59.7mpg combined, so all versions have low running costs. ALLGRIP SZ5 models have four-wheel drive for grip in wet and slippery weather and a rear parking camera.
A 265-litre boot and five doors make the Swift an excellent runabout. SZ5 models have keyless entry and start and power-folding door mirrors. The rear seats split-fold 60-40 and there are ISOFIX points on both rear outer seats.
Living with it
The Swift’s sporty looks and handling tell only half the story – this is a refined and comfortable cruiser, with adaptive cruise control and lane departure warning (SZ-L, SZ-T, SZ5) for safe adventures. It’s the perfect car for getting around.
