CarAdvice Rating: 

If you play tennis, every 30 shots or so (if you aren’t Martina Hingis) you actually manage to engage the ball with the sweet spot on the racket. It’s a wonderful, if fleeting, moment. It’s meaningful eye contact and a red-lipstick smile. The (successful) sprint to the train as the pneumatic doors close. Standing on a glorified piece of foam with the humbling hydrodynamic power of the ocean all around … and not getting your face jammed into a sand bank shortly thereafter. In tennis, the ball reaches escape velocity effortlessly, without the racket reverberating your arm off at the shoulder. It kisses the net and screams into the back corner of the other court. Your opponent is, like, 404 – nowhere. Gotta love the sweet spot.

The outgoing Suzuki Swift is the automotive equivalent of hitting the sweet spot in the light car segment. That car managed to do everything right and even remain funky even in its twilight years – and who among us hasn’t dreamt of achieving that?

The new Swift is even better than that.

Of course, when a product isn’t broken this presents its own set of problems for the architects of its replacement. How do you fix it? Certainly not by provoking significant change – which is why, in the absence of side-by-side photographic evidence, you’d be forgiven for assuming the old Swift and its replacement were dizygotic twins. The stylistic differences are minor; you’d need to park the old and the new back-to-back to spot them all.

The outgoing Swift certainly kicked a major goal for style. The wraparound windscreen, oversized, elongated headlamps and assertive stance were – literally – the shape of things to come in light cars when the car was first introduced.

This new car might look the same, but it’s grown almost 100mm overall, with 50mm of that between the wheels, and it’s also slightly taller and wider. But you’d need to be a Suzuki trainspotting over-achiever to pick it. ‘An evolution and not a revolution’ is the old marketing chestnut trotted out by the spin doctors in this situation. In this case it’s a good-news story.

The Swift is a vital car for Suzuki in Australia. The automotive media might delight in the razor-sharp Suzuki Kizashi, and the Indians might love their Altos, but the Swift is the real bread and butter Down Under, accounting for just over 11,000 of Suzuki Oz’s 18,200 sales for the year to November 2011.

It’s a key car globally as well. The Swift is in its third generation and offers 1.65 million sales as evidence of its success – and that’s since 2005. Think of it like this: If Suzuki were Volkswagen, the Swift would be the Volkswagen Golf – with all the attendant evidence in mitigation about the brand’s identity.

Suzuki is no upstart. It’s been in the auto-building business since 1961, and is something of a virtuoso when it comes to making small cars, as well as supernova-esque two-wheelers and even marine engines. It does this very well.

What’s less clear-cut, perhaps, is what Suzuki is. Global financial meltdown meant the cross-shareholding with General Motors has disintegrated, leaving Suzuki just under 20 per cent owned by Volkswagen, while at the same time holding a corresponding share of VW itself. Still, incest is out of control in the automotive industry. At the coal face, inside a dealership and doing a deal, this counts for very little.

Suzuki hardly presents a full, one-in-each-segment entrant lineup. It doesn’t field a vehicle for everyone. Maybe it’s concentrating instead on the cars it thinks it can sell strongly on the world stage. Much of that is aimed at the burgeoning Indian market, where Maruti Suzuki is the biggest name on four wheels, and the halo car is the Alto … in inverse proportion to its size.

The new Swift will be available globally with a new 1.2-litre petrol engine and a 1.3-litre diesel built under licence from Fiat. We’re not going to get either of those engines in Australia when the new Swift arrives in February 2011. We’ll be getting an all-new 1.4-litre naturally aspirated four with 70kW at 6000rpm and 130Nm at 4000rpm – within a smidge of the outgoing Swift’s outputs but with significantly improved economy. That’s thanks mainly to a serious re-think of the engine’s internal friction, reduced by a range of engineering tweaks including an offset crank, lower friction rings and shimless tappets.

In the five-speed manual the official ADR fuel figure has dropped from 6.3 litres per 100km to 5.5, and in the four-speed auto the improvement is from 6.6 down to 6.2.

The 1.4 revs, flat-chat, to 6500rpm and features a wonderfully subtle soft rev limiter that maintains peak rpm until you wake up and decide to select the next gear. It does its best work over 3000rpm, delivering admirable mid-range urge. I don’t know about you, but when I hear the ‘1.4’ I start to think: ‘yawn’. Not so with the Swift – this engine is at the very least sufficiently engaging. It’s refined when you’re cruising and raucous when you’re punting. And it sounds alright, too. It’s not a WRX – but then, it will be less than half the price.

CarAdvice was given a sneak peek and test drive of the new Swift at Suzuki’s Ryuyo test track in Hamamatsu, Japan. Ryuyo, built in 1964, is the company’s motorcycle development skunkworks, offering a blindingly fast 6.5km circuit with esses and a hairpin, not to mention an epic 2.3km main straight. After 10 laps interspersed across four new Swifts I can tell you that in the real world of roundabouts, intersections, speed limits and traffic, most owners will never appreciate how seriously good the new Swift’s dynamics are. It sits supremely composed at speed up to 180km/h and behaves obediently in corners. It’s engaging but not malevolent, even when provoked. Many people won’t know for a second what they’re missing out on, but for those who do, the Swift is a tremendous car to punt hard. If you’re impressed with the Ford Fiesta or Renault Clio – or even the Volkswagen Polo – you’ll also find yourself having a ball in a Swift.

A new, 50 per cent stiffer body reinforced at key stress points with high-tensile steel up to six times stronger than the regular construction-grade stuff has helped, as has numerous suspension revisions and an upgrade to 15- and 16-inch wheels, depending on spec. (The outgoing Swift runs on 14s or 15s, depending on model.

Steering is new, too. It’s electric, but the feel is great and the gearing is set up to offer not much assistance close to on-centre, and less at the lock-to-lock extremities.

The five-speed manual is excellent, although the light car market must be on the cusp of accommodating six speeds with three pedals, and thankfully a full torque-converter four-speed auto, not a constant-velocity transmission. In terms of absolute performance, the manual is ahead by a nose. The auto won’t disappoint, but the manual is better.

While it’s a relatively safe bet that many owners won’t ever appreciate the Swift’s decisive handling, there’s a sweet spot with dynamics, too. And Suzuki has hit it. See, with cars, there’s a middle ground between cars that want to kill you, dynamically, and cars that seek instead to bore you to death. The new Swift is in a great place between these polar extremes. It rides on MacPherson struts at the front and a torsion-beam setup at the rear, but these are merely descriptions of the underlying engineering. The bottom line is that you heel-toe to third and lift the throttle into a corner at 5000rpm in a Swift, and the nose tucks in just perfectly. You’re bullseyeing the apex – minus the terror you’d experience in, say, a Lotus – and the steering does a pretty good job with feedback as well. You’re not exactly overwhelmed with urge on the way out, which is a good news/bad news story. You can’t gloss over your cornering mistakes with monster torque in a Swift the way you can in (for example) a Ralliart Lancer – but if you’re quick in a Swift, you’re … er … swift.

You are also the beneficiary of four-corner disc brakes on the top-spec GLX models, although the GL has drums at the rear. Brake pedal feel is pretty good, with either setup, too. Even when you’re working them hard. The rear drums on the base car don’t seem to comprise a singular disadvantage.

Inside, the cabin has had only half a makeover. There is iPod integration and a USB input. The upmarket GLX model gets reach adjustment on the steering (tilt-only on the GL) plus a proximity key and stop-start button (conventional ignition key on the GL). Unfortunately, although there are substantial improvements, some of the materials are cheap and still feel harsh. The old car was like this too; the execution is better with the new car, but the materials are similar. The minimalistic four-instrument cluster is excellent and remarkably free of tacky gimmicks. The front seats are comfortable enough and provide adequate support, even on a high-speed motorcycle development track. And the car is a very relaxed drive – even at the kinds of speeds that would get you arrested in Australia.

Boot space? There isn’t any, statistically. If you’re thinking about swinging a cat or getting into body disposal, the Swift still won’t suit. At least not with the rear seats upright. You’ll have to do without passengers if you need a couple of golf bags transported about the place. (The rear seats offer 60:40 fold.) With the rear seats face-planted, however, you’ll almost certainly have enough room for even unwieldy items like pushbikes.

Safety is another area in which the Swift is a big winner. There are seven airbags standard across the range: 2 x front, 2 x side and 2 x curtains, plus a driver’s knee bag. Electronic stability control is likewise standard. The new Swift has already achieved the coveted five-star safety rating from Euro NCAP, and Suzuki Australia is confident the local car will achieve five stars as well; another advantage of the stronger, stiffer body structure.

Second car? First car? The new Swift is probably a lot better than that, but the Swift is certainly ideal as both, or either. The new Swift is better – maybe not such a departure visually, but 15 per cent better all around. And that means it scores 11 out of 10 when rating the best light cars on the market.

If you’re in the market for a light car like the Swift, drive a Mazda2, a Ford Fiesta and a Polo at the same price point for comparison. All four are excellent cars – and don’t forget that the devil often isn’t in the detail with cars. The prime differentiators are often less related to the specifications than the practicalities. You might be a golfer, a bushwalker, a dog lover, a gardener, a paddler or a cyclist – and in these cases as well as a thousand shades of end-use in between it pays to see how well each of the cars in the short-list manages to accommodate your lifestyle. Specifications for Australia are not yet forthcoming (we’ll keep you apprised as information is available).

Prices, likewise, are yet to be announced – the safe bet is slightly more but still “sharp” according to insiders. Currently the rrp on the outgoing Swift ranges from $16,290 to $23,990. That latter figure is for the 1.6-powered Swift Sport, the successor to which Suzuki won’t comment on – for now. Reason? Not wanting to impact on sales now. You might infer from this comment that the probable new Swift Sport will be substantially sportier than its soon-to-be predecessor. The outgoing Swift had the singular distinction of being the most affordable car on the market where the ‘sport’ badge wasn’t just a cynical marketing exercise comprising a decal kit, a badge and a body kit. It was under $25k and actually sporty. So there’s almost certainly something affordable and good in the wings for Sport fans.

One thing’s for sure: Come February 2011 the sweet-spot orientation of the new Swift will be unchanged. Except for getting both swifter and sweeter.

    Less power, more weight?

    • http://www.caradvice.com.au/ John Cadogan

      J, There’s 4kW less and 25kg more. It feels the same. You need to bear in mind that peak power isn’t where you drive the car. It’s just a single point on the rev range (here, 6000rpm) at wide-open throttle. The fact is, 25kg is less than one bag of luggage if you’re flying on holidays, or about half a tank of fuel. If the mid-range torque performance of this engine is even slightly boosted, compared with the outgoing Swift, the new Swift could actually perform better than the old one. It drives very well. You’d need a gps data logger even to measure the difference in straight-line performance. The big improvement is in handling thanks to the chassis refinements and the stiffer body (and the steering). Specifications aren’t the full story on any car.

      • RickyC

        You’re assuming that the previous 1.5L engine provided adequate power in the first place. A 1.4L engine and 4-speed automatic is not a good combination.

        • bryan

          Adequate has different meaning to different people. people looking for a small car will find the power on this car sufficient.
          and why dont u forward ur resume to Suzuki so that they can appoint u and take further advice as to engines and gear boxes

  • RickyC

    Hmm let’s see – smaller engine, bigger body, ancient 4-speed auto, same old styling, probably more expensive… yeah, this is gonna do great.

    • G

      Let me see…

      Mazda2 = 4-speed auto
      Toyota Yaris = 4-speed auto
      Hyundai i20 = 4-speed auto
      Nissan Micra = 4-speed auto

      Yep, doesn’t look so bad now, does it?

      • fishman

        …and Ford Fiesta with 6 speed dual clutch auto. Is that the definition of a no-brainer??

        • Pauly

          …and VW Polo with a 7 Speed DSG?

          • Nelson

            It’s funny but the only thing I can say is:

            “Everything from Japan and Korea is so outdated”

            Ford Fiesta and VW Polo are both european.

            European Cars are world best by a far margin.

          • Phunken

            Until it break down and the servicing is extortionist amount… DSG is good if you drive like a rally driver but around town no difference for the class of car this compete and the longevity is very questionable. 

          • MF

            just because they dont offer more than 4 speed auto, doesnt mean they are outdated. There are luxury cars offering 8 speeds, but whats the point really? you pay a few more grands for that extra gear, is it not gonna make a significant difference in real life?

            Why dont they just all go CVT thats what i dont understand.

      • RickyC

        Hmm let’s see – Yaris = due to be replaced in 2011 most likely with new 6 speed auto. Mazda2 & i20 = several years old already. Nissan Micra = cheaper than Swift, so it’s excusable (barely).

        • G

          The i20 is several years old? the thing has less than 2 years, c’mon.

          The Micra is cheaper with the 1.2L engine entry model, if you compare the 1.5L they are roughly the same.

          And I bet you whatever you like that the next Yaris will NOT have a 6-speed auto.

          • RickyC

            i20 has been around well over 2 years – since 2008 in Europe. Micra with 1.2L is $12,990, with 1.5L is $14,990. New Swift will most likely be $16,990 – a big price gap in the budget car world.

  • Gene

    This reviewer sings praise of the 4-speed auto….. ahead of a CVT…….?

    While one can argue that a 6-speed torque converter auto is better than a CVT, saying a 4-speed is better is, shall I say, not convincing at all.

    • Al Juraj

      You’re thankful for a 4-speed auto instead of a CVT? I’d much rather put up with the gearless whine than gappy ratios that ruin performance and/or economy of modern cars. I hope the new Yaris will not suffer the same fate.

      • RickyC

        I agree – a CVT would be smoother and more economical.

    • http://caradvice OSU811

      I personally would prefer a well sorted 4sp auto
      over a whiny, revvy, boring CVT any day!
      at least they can feel remotely normal and sporty
      plus a 4sp auto wont hunt around as much!

      • Gene

        I prefer a well sorted 3 speed auto, like the one in the XF Falcon. That was ahead of its time.

      • Phunken

        our not driving the properly in a CVT than. I can out gun majority of the car around town with a CVT. Its efficient too. Just need to be gentle at the beginning and before the 2grand RPM fang it. It’s about getting the rev up before flooring it which is the way to go with maintaining the fuel economy too. Just need to get the initial momentum. Flooring the pedal like GTR with launch control is not the point its all getting used to the technology for the best result.

  • Malaysian

    I am pretty sure the 3 red swift sport cars are the old model. Reporting fail CA

  • Al Juraj

    There’s really no point in developing cars if they keep using yesteryear transmissions.

  • Stoney!

    a thousand photo’s and not one of the interior, well done.

    Stoney!

    • Duckula

      yeah whats with the 897 pics of the same car in different colours going around the same corner…… and nothing of the inside… I guess if Mercedes can still get away with using vinyl on their seats, then Suzuki can get away with keeping the ye olde worlde 4 spd auto in the swift….

      • http://www.caradvice.com.au/ John Cadogan

        Stoney & Duckula (nice name btw…), we flew to Japan for this. The event was fairly constrained. We got only two hours with the cars. There were eight of us, and only four cars available. The cars were driven on the test track continuously, so no there aren’t any interior shots. Also, we were on Suzuki’s motorcycle proving grounds, and our own cameras were banned. (Because they really didn’t want us to photograph anything sensitive that might happen past.) Suzuki put two of their photographers on the track and the images you see were shot by them. Bear in mind this wasn’t an official launch, but more of a preview. The Australian launch will be in Feb and we’ll bring you detailed images then.

        • Stoney!

          ok no probs…

  • Pauly

    So the Aussie dollar is doing slot better. Car companies are dropping prices on cars. And Suzuki Australia are looking at increasing the price? Huh?

    As good as the swift maybe, if it were my money I would be getting the VW Polo. Better interior, better engines, much better auto gear box. Disc brakes on all models and also has a 5 star safety rating.

    • G

      If you can pay the asked premium for the Polo, go ahead. Just keep in mind that almost everything in the Polo is also optional and you have to pay extra.

    • http://www.caradvice.com.au/ John Cadogan

      My take on this is the Polo’s about 20 per cent more, spec for spec. So it should be better. Also, the new Swift features seven airbags standard, ESC, more space and superior dynamics, and a more fuel efficient engine. I’d pay a little more for that…

    • MF

      VW is always more expensive, they’d better be better? but no… they are more expensive and they are not necessarily better, that’s what it sucks about VW.

  • Able

    My thoughts on the new Swift are Polo please.

  • Warren

    There is no denying that the current Swift was a motoring phenomenon – “ that car managed to do everything right” and when one of the only motoring Journalists to have actually seen and driven it, reports that “the new Swift is even better..” – I’m listening.

    With the current Swift receiving the prestigious Automotive Researchers and Journalists Conference of Japan (RJC) Car of the Year award, and going on to win 63 Car of the Year awards globally, the incoming Swift, which as also won the RJC award, appears to have the goods. As a current Swift owner, I am looking to upgrade to more, but don’t want to lose the things that I love about my Zook. With more room, less fuel, updated features and a fresh look , I for one am excited at a reported 15% improvement. Roll on February.

  • Hung Low

    The drivetrain is a disappointment. Suzuki, you are capable of so much better FFS!
    I have owned the current model when it was first released in 05 and it was a brilliant car but 6 years on the car should have evolved into something better mechanically!
    It still looks great (except the rear bumper)and I would still have this over a I20 or Yaris. But the Fiesta and Polo will make life hard this time around for the Swift!

    • Hung Low

      I understand that the mechanical package gives great fuel economy in the class, but a CVT or 6speed would have made the auto version a class leader.
      Also a larger more powerful engine option would have been good for those who actually buy these cars for a bit of zippy-ness.
      The Sport version promises something better lets hope it has more than a 100kw under the hood!

    • jj

      test drive a jazz for a weekend ( if someone will let you ) and you wont buy any of those.

  • golfer

    I hope they find a ballsy 2L for the premium model.
    Think Pulsar SSS brought into this decade.
    A car like this would sell well, particularly to P platers.

    • Hung Low

      If the car is promoted for rally competitions like the current Swift Sport, the engine will need to be in the <1600cc class to be competitive.
      They have the SX4 in the AWD turbo category so all we need to ask is for a hot version of the 1600 with 120kw!!;)

      • golfer

        I hear you, but I’d rather a hard charging 2L :)

  • nickdl

    I don’t get it, why is there a pic of the current-gen Swift for the review?

  • Swifty

    2006 Swift owner, Suzuki’s always impress with their reliability but I’ve hoped they fixed the major niggles that reviews never seem to mention:

    - Stock clutch bites very high
    - Combined with the sensitive electronic throttle makes slow speed manoeuvring harder than it should be
    - All Swift interiors resemble a rattlesnake factory after 6 months
    - Over the long term, genuine spare parts and servicing are above average for a JPN car

    This new Swift looks to continue the “tick all the boxes” philosophy so I hope the engineering refinement is there, especially when Mazda 2′s and Fiestas can do it.

  • jj

    all the design ideas went into making it look like the old one… the cargo area still looks too small from what i can see, also the angle of the hatch will make it difficult to get anything in the back.

    pix 2 4 and 5 are of the old model, not that you can tell without squinting.

    BUT this will still sell… people brought the old one over many other BETTER and more economical / practical small cars.

  • Jonno Smith

    On paper, 2011 Suzuki Swift is a big, big disappointment. A 4-speed auto is not the way forward. Also, the new Swift sports a smaller 1.4 liter engine (minus 4 kW & 3 Nm vs old 1.5 engine) and an added 25 kgs. In Japan, the old Swift has a CVT option and even a 4WD JDM version. The JDM Suzuki Swift Sports has a CVT option unlike here in Australia. Also, Suzuki should start offering Direct Injection (DI) and turbocharged engines instead of the same old, same old stuff from the previous Swift.

    The new 2011 Ford Fiesta range has the 6-speed DSG option available. The newly launched VW Polo has already got a 7-speed DSG option while the GTi version not only has the 7-speed DSG as standard but also a Twin-charged 1.4 engine. Even the Polo 1.2 TSi has a class leading turbocharged engine and a 7-speed DSG option. Holden’s Barina replacement has got a 1.4 turbocharged engine version in the works but whether it comes to Australia is..???

    The Japanese manufacturers seemed to be extremely timid in terms of introducing new technology and class-leading performance edge stuff. It’s not that they haven’t got the know-how or technology – they have but only for their own domestic market. They just selling to Australia the old stuff that even their own Japanese Domestic market wouldn’t touch. Suzuki has got turbocharged 660 cc engines with CVTs in their Kei class cars. Together with Daihatsu, they dominate the competitive Kei car market in Japan. In Australia, they just contented to play it safe!

  • darkone

    Had a 97 4 door swift,not as modern as this model but it was the most reliable car I ever owned.always regretted selling it.

  • katyperry

    100 pictures?

  • Richo

    Those complaining that the motor is smaller are using out-dated methodology.

    Smaller engines with new technology are capable of just as much performance as older tech large motor, but delivering significantly better fuel economy.

    Go drive a 1.3ltr Honda Jazz, gets down the road very very well, but delivers awesome fuel economy, you’d be mad to buy a 1.5ltr Jazz, absolute waste of money, extra power at 6,000rpm, but in the real world the power difference is inperceptable, but it uses more fuel.

  • Glen

    A five speed auto would have been nice not that I drive autos.. Six speed manual would have me sold, with a direct injection 1.6l. The new interior does look a lot nicer, might not have the quality of the polo, but at least u can bear to look at it. All u people talking up DEG’s obviously havent owned one. And to that guy saying buy a Jazz over everything else? I think I would rather the Alto…

  • James

    Whats the diffrence between this and a Alto?

    • Prazwalp

      its that it has got higher cc than alto…….u stupid ….

  • http://yahoo rosssoriano

    I love the feature of swift..but could make the trunk more roomy same as honda jazz?
