2019 Suzuki Vitara Turbo AllGrip review

The refreshed Suzuki Vitara picks up a host of new tech to keep it competitive in the small-SUV class, but is it enough to make it a standout?

4x4 Tips: Gearing up for the Victorian High Country

REVIEW: 2019 Suzuki Jimny manual, off-road

Chances are, you’re not buying the 2019 Suzuki Jimny as a family car, which slightly softens the blow of it having a poor safety rating. If you’re buying it for fun and excitement, however, along with a good dose of solid off-road capability, then I reckon you’re barking up the right tree...

2017 Suzuki Swift review

See the full article here Suzuki is on a roll. New offerings such as the Ignis, Baleno and Vitara are giving the humble Japanese brand more exposure than it has had in years. But the all-new Suzuki Swift you see here is the big one, because it's the company's most popular vehicle and the one it's best known for...

2017 Suzuki Ignis review

Read the full article here. The Suzuki Ignis is back from the dead after a decade-long absence, the latest in the brand’s growing line of reborn '90s nameplates including the Vitara and Baleno. Moreover, it's affixed to one of the most intrinsically likeable cars you can buy...

2016 Suzuki Vitara Range Review

The 2016 Suzuki Vitara has been a bit of a hit for the Japanese brand – it seemingly has the right blend of pricing, styling and robustness that buyers are warming to. The range of Suzuki Vitara models is expansive, with three engine options, front- and all-wheel-drive derivatives, and pricing ranging from just over twenty grand all the way up to the mid thirties, so your budget may dictate which Vitara you buy...

2018 Kia Picanto X-Line v Suzuki Ignis comparison

Australia is one of the world's more heavily urbanised populations, so it's incongruous that this nation of city slickers ignores cars with the smallest footprints. Yet we do. Well, not entirely. The Kia Picanto has rightly been credited with revitalising the so-called 'micro car' segment, as its 69 per cent market share shows...

2019 Suzuki Vitara Turbo v Toyota C-HR Koba comparison

You're looking at divergent ways to produce a small crossover SUV: the boxy and unpretentious Suzuki Vitara in updated Series II guise versus the uncompromising Toyota C-HR, with slinky silhouette and sleek body sculpting to make it as 'un-Toyota' as possible. Despite the different approaches from each Japanese brand, the target demographics are similar...

2018 Volkswagen Polo 85TSI Comfortline v Suzuki Swift GLX Turbo

The Suzuki Swift and Volkswagen Polo account for more than 20 million global sales between them – and that’s not counting the Japanese city car’s 1980s/1990s predecessors that had different names around the world. Swift is the right word to describe the little Suzuki’s rise to six-million units since it became a proper global model in 2005...

Why I bought a Suzuki Jimny

Motoring writers don’t really need to buy new vehicles. There are 65 brands in Australia selling new cars, SUVs and commercials that need testing, ensuring our garages are rarely empty. This is why we more commonly own clunkers or ‘classics’ of varying repute; ones we swear will get that restoration some day..

Suzuki to stop selling diesels in India due to new rules

Maruti Suzuki, India's dominant car maker, will eliminate diesel engines from its passenger car range starting from April next year. Maruti Suzuki chairman's R C Bhargava confirmed the move with Quartz. He did leave a little bit of wiggle room, though, stating “if we find there is a market for diesel cars [after the new emissions rules take effect] we will develop it in a reasonable amount of time"...

Five fun, niche cars under $30k

For most people a car is a tool, an appliance intended for a logical purpose. Sure, they want cool tech, luxury features and a nice mix of ride comfort and zip, but it’s usually the more sensible elements like running costs, resale value, warranty, fuel economy, infotainment, space and safety that get them over the line...

Toyota and Suzuki announce model, drivetrain sharing agreement

Toyota and Suzuki have agreed to share drivetrains and models in a wide-ranging partnership, which is primarily focussed on Europe, India and Africa. On a global level, Toyota will supply its hybrid technology to Suzuki, which to-date has sold vehicles only with petrol, diesel and mild hybrid drivetrains...

2010 Suzuki Swift Sport review

This is a one-year update on my original owner review. So, one year and about 30,000km later, what's the little yellow boi been like to live with? Well, pretty damn good. The car is still as rock solid as the day I bought it, with no rattles or squeaks to be found or heard anywhere, nothing has fallen off, or even had so much as a scuff mark...

2018 Suzuki Swift GLX Turbo review

Initially, when I set out to purchase a new car, I had, at least what I considered to be, a fairly generous set of criteria. But as it turns out, if you’re after something that’s small, exciting and (hopefully) reliable over the long term, the shopping list becomes incredibly short. So, from the few contenders still standing, I settled on a 2018 Suzuki Swift GLX Turbo...

2018 Suzuki Swift GL Navigator (Safety) review

DISCLAIMER: This was our rental car in Japan. Walking up to the Nippon Rental car, we were both excited to see which car we would be handed. It was either a Mazda Demio (2), Honda Fit (Jazz) or a Suzuki Swift. We were handed the Swift equivalent to our GL Safety pack – some key differences were that ours had auto folding mirrors and lights, heated seats and digital climate control...

2016 Suzuki Swift GL review

I purchased this car because of all the positive reviews I had read online, and I have to say it lived up to every single one of them. I absolutely love this car. The exterior looks very trendy and modern. It has lovely big headlights, a nicely shaped body and a nice butt. Inside, it is actually extremely roomy, even though from the outside it looks like it would be rather small...
