The iconic Suzuki Swift has been on the road for more than 30 years, and was one of the original vehicles in the supermini class. The latest iteration boasts a strong performance, great value for money, an economic engine and reliability thanks to its robust build quality. Islington Motor Group is pleased to offer this classic small hatchback at its showroom in Trowbridge.
The Swift has a long history of style and all-new model certainly lives up to its reputation. Solid, muscular curves, striking front grille and body-coloured bumpers and mirrors make it an ultra-smart model. There are plenty of opportunities for personalisation, including the choice of 10 different colour options with three dual-tone options to choose from.
Inside the cabin, you’ll be surprised by good levels of space for a small car, the build quality is excellent and regardless of which trim you select there’s loads of equipment fitted as standard. The driver finds the dashboard clear and intuitive to use. From mid-spec SZ-T and upwards, there’s a touchscreen system that comes with a reversing camera along with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and MirrorLink support. Select the SZ5 for additional tech including adaptive cruise control, auto-dipping headlights and auto emergency brakes.
Passengers big or small will enjoy plenty of room, both head and leg in the rear seats, and access to children in the rear is easy thanks to the five-door configuration. Plus, you’ll find shopping a breeze thanks to the 265-litre boot (rear seats can be folded to free up additional space if necessary).
Under the bonnet you’ll benefit from Suzuki’s BoosterJet three-cylinder engine - some versions with mild-hybrid assistance. There’s a choice of three different trims available on the Swift, the SZ3, SZ-T and SZ5. Which trim you select will decide what engine choices there are on offer. The four-cylinder 1.2-litre Dualjet finds itself completely at home on urban streets – you can even select this as 4WD. Select the SZ-T trim and you get a 109bhp 1.0-litre Boosterjet turbocharged three-cylinder engine. The range-topping SZ5 comes in either manual or automatic, the latter gearbox is noted for being slick and responsive.
The Swift also takes the safety of its passengers very seriously. With a suite of airbags, including both frontal and lateral airbag protection, seat belt reminders for all passengers and ISOFIX anchor points in the rear, it’s got you covered. Select the safety pack to also benefit from Speed Assistance and AEB (Autonomous Emergency Braking), the latter being a safety technology that automatically applies the car’s brakes if the driver doesn’t respond to the traffic conditions ahead.
Suzuki’s SHVS hybrid (Smart Hybrid Vehicle by Suzuki) is our new petrol electric hybrid advanced driving system. SHVS reduces CO2 emissions and improves fuel efficiency which means lower running costs for you. Plus, it’s lighter and takes up less space than normal hybrid systems which, when combined with a lightweight chassis, ensures nimble performance as well as improved efficiency.
Our petrol electric hybrid engine car system also uses a compact high-performance lithium-ion battery placed under the front passenger seat to store energy and incorporates an idle stop function operated via the Integrated Start Generator. The SHVS system only uses its conventional engine starter motor when first started from cold, under all other conditions it uses the ISG unit to allow smooth and quiet engine restarts.
The energy assistance provided during acceleration enables the SHVS to be known as a mild hybrid system which is ideally suited to a compact car and adds just 6.2kg to the overall weight.
The ISG generates electricity more efficiently than a conventional alternator through regenerative braking which is the term given to the transfer of kinetic heat energy into electrical energy. The ISG unit detects this as soon as the brake pedal is depressed and recharges both the lithium-ion battery and conventional 12 volt battery.
