New Suzuki Swift in Porthmadog & Dolgellau Gwynedd
The Suzuki Swift is an efficient car with bags of personality. It’s powered by Suzuki’s latest-generation SHVS Hybrid powertrain, pairing a 1.2 Dualjet petrol engine with an Integrated Starter Motor and a lithium-ion battery. The ISG and battery reduce load on the Swift’s electrical system during start-ups and acceleration, helping the Swift return up to 56.4 mpg combined (WLTP) with a great drive to match. Choose from SZ-L, SZ-T and SZ5 trim levels. SZ-T models boast a 7” touchscreen with Apple CarPlay & Android Auto and a rear parking camera. Attitude models build on that spec with sportier styling, with front, side, and rear carbon effect skirts, a rear spoiler and a mesh front grille so you look the part everywhere you go.
The sporty, compact Swift has bags of character, with stylish LED daytime running lights and 16” alloy wheels. SZ-T and Attitude models have rear tinted windows, with Attitude models wearing a sports styling kit for the looks of a hot hatch.
It might be a hybrid, but the Suzuki Swift is engineered for fun. The engine is punchy, and the short turning circle makes urban adventures easy. The ride is well suited to British roads and you will achieve over 50 mpg combined easily.
Thanks to its five-door design, dual rear ISOFIX mounting points and 60-40 split-folding rear seats, the Swift is a perfectly adequate family car. The cabin has lots of cubby spaces and to make life easier, all models have front electric windows.
Living with it
The 7” touchscreen is a joy to use and you can run smartphone apps on it using Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. The rear parking camera makes manoeuvres easier and all models have air conditioning. Add Radar Brake Support for extra safety.
