2021 Suzuki Baleno GLX review

The Baleno might play 'Billy' to the Swift's 'Alec', but does the 'other' compact Suzuki warrant a closer look in the budget hatch stakes? James takes a spin.

Video: Suzuki Jimny v Lada Niva – flex comparison and tug-of-war

How far have we really come? The 2020 Suzuki Jimny squares off against the 1988 Lada Niva to see which pint-sized 4X4 performs best on a RTI (Ramp Travel Index) test, and a tug of war!

2019 Suzuki Swift GL Navigator with Safety Pack v Kia Picanto GT-Line | Small Car Comparison

If you have around $20,000 to spend on a compact city car, it's hard to look past the Kia Picanto. It's surprisingly grown-up to drive and loaded with features, which is why it's comfortably the best-selling micro car in Australia. But size matters – so we've heard – and for not all that much more money than Kia demands, you could find yourself behind the wheel of something more substantial...

Comparison: 2019 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon and Suzuki Jimny take on the LandCruiser

For all their foibles, warts and all, these three 4X4s remain beloved in the hearts of off-roading enthusiasts old and new. But, out of the new 2019 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon, 2019 Suzuki Jimny and 2019 Toyota LandCruiser 79 Series 'Troopcarrier', which is most capable and our favourite off-road? Find out, right here.

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...

2013 Suzuki Alto GLX review

Well, I purchased this Suzuki Alto GLX as a demo with only 14km on the speedometer in April 2014 for $10,700 driveway. I believe the RRP was $12,490. Over 72,000km from new this car has been frugal on fuel, averaging 4.9 litres per 100 kilometres on regional country drives and 5.8L/100km in city usage. The engine is the best part of this car; that 1...

2018 Suzuki Ignis GL review

With great, young styling, and while being fun to drive and super economical, the Ignis 5-speed always puts a smile on your face - especially when refueling. I average 4.6 litres per 100 kilometres, which is handy considering I travel 1000km per week (Leura, Blue Mountains to Ingleburn NSW every day). The 1...

2018 Suzuki Vitara RT-S review

This car is by no means a performance SUV. The 1.6-litre is just adequate for city driving, although it will not complain if you push it. If you need any more performance, you maybe need to be looking at the 1.4-litre turbo. The price for what you get is hands down the best value small SUV on the market...

2013 Suzuki Swift Sport review

I want to start this review by saying that I am a Honda fan. A '95 Honda Accord was my first car and I have particular love for the high-revving VTEC Honda’s of old. So when I finished my degree and decided I wanted to buy my first car with a sporting bent, I went searching for the Type R’s, among a few others - preferably naturally aspirated...
