Prices for the base Dualjet 1.2-litre SZ3 model start at around £11,000 and that buys you a five-door car with a 5-speed manual gearbox. If you want an auto, you'll need to stretch to the pricier 'Boosterjet' powerplant. The only other option is a 4x4 'ALLGRIP' variant that pairs the Dualjet engine with Suzuki's SHVS mild hybrid technology and comes only with plusher 'SZ5' trim priced at around £15,500.
The Swift isn't a car that majors on a whole bunch of luxuries, but the SZ3 trim level doesn't do too badly for kit. Six airbags, air conditioning, a leather steering wheel, a DAB radio with Bluetooth and four speakers, rear privacy glass, LED daytime running lights, 15-inch wheels, body coloured door mirrors and front electric windows are all included. As you'd expect in this day and age, every model has ABS anti-lock brakes, ESP stability control and a brake assist function for emergency stops. There's also a tyre pressure monitoring system, along with twin front, side and curtain airbags, plus there are two Isofix child seat mounts in the rear bench.
