Suzuki Jimny: You don’t mess with imperfection

The CarAdvice Melbourne office has just had not one, but two 2019 Suzuki Jimnys pass through its garage – one auto, one manual. As unlikely as it seems, this tiny little shipping crate on wheels is shaping up to be one of 2019s hottest new releases. Every time we mention it on the site or on social media it attracts a swarm of comments and reactions...

2019 Suzuki Jimny review

The Suzuki Jimny competes in a field of one. It's not designed with the masses in mind, but for a small clique, this hardcore 4x4 is everything they demanded and more.

2018 Suzuki Swift Sport auto review

Manual or auto? James Wong tries out the self-shifting Swift Sport to answer the age-old question.

2018 Suzuki Swift Sport review

The new Suzuki Swift Sport is a significantly better car than its predecessor. This 970kg turbocharged terrier may be a literal lightweight, but it's not a figurative one.

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 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...

2018 Honda Jazz VTi-S v Mazda 2 Maxx v Suzuki Swift GL Nav comparison

Compact cars – not the most exciting segment in the motoring world is it? If you agreed with that statement, you’d be overlooking the fact that there is currently more value for money than ever before in this highly competitive city car segment...

2018 Renault Clio RS Cup v Suzuki Swift Sport comparison

You don't need to spend a ton of cash to have fun on four wheels, nor do you need maximum power. Sometimes cars with lower performance ceilings, driven near their ragged edge, are the most fun of all. Cases in point, the two you see here. The just-launched Suzuki Swift Sport from Japan and the just-updated Renault Clio RS200 Cup from France, both pocket rockets par excellence...

Suzuki Baleno GLX Turbo axed

Suzuki has killed its range-topping Baleno GLX Turbo, replacing it with a naturally-aspirated model wearing the GLX badge. Where the now-defunct Turbo (above) was powered by an 82kW, 160Nm three-cylinder turbocharged engine, the new Baleno GLX will make use of the same 1.4-litre naturally-aspirated four-cylinder engine as the wider range...

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...
