2019 Suzuki Swift review: GL Navigator with Safety Pack

Seriously light, packed with features, and cute to boot, the Swift is a perpetual favourite for first-car buyers. But its value equation is starting to look shaky...

2019 Suzuki Jimny manual review: City driving

It's charming, funky, affordable, and capable off-road. But how does the 2019 Suzuki Jimny manual fare in the urban jungle?

2019 Suzuki Jimny owner review: Off-roading and road-tripping

I purchased the Jimny a few months ago with every intention of going off-road with some semblance of regularity. I didn’t fit BFGoodrich all-terrains for aesthetics alone.

Testing the off-road limits of the Suzuki Jimny and Holden Trailblazer

Just four hours drive east of the Melbourne CBD, the challenging terrain of the Victorian High Country has cemented it as one of the most iconic 4WD destinations in the country. As a result, the area is at the top of the bucket list for avid off-roaders. Many Australians travel far and wide to find their own little oasis in the region...

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...

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...

2019 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon v Toyota LandCruiser v Suzuki Jimny off-road comparison

Here we have the new 2019 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon, Suzuki Jimny and Toyota LandCruiser 79 Series 'Troopcarrier'. Which is most capable and our favourite off-road?

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...

Suzuki unveils a car with no steering wheel and no driver’s seat

Japanese carmaker Suzuki has opened the 2019 Tokyo motor show by unveiling a car without a steering wheel or a driver’s seat. The Suzuki Hanare is only a concept car designed as a motor show tease for now, but the company says it's a sign of things to come as the automotive world shifts to autonomous motoring...

Suzuki reveals concepts ahead of Tokyo motor show

Built to embody the tagline "Waku Waku switch for everyone: Excitement for you, excitement for everyone" (seriously), the range of concept cars preview everything from a plug-in hybrid coupe to a self-driving living room on wheels...

Suzuki introduces five-year, unlimited-kilometre warranty

Suzuki has become the last mainstream brand to offer a five-year, unlimited-kilometre warranty as standard across its range. The Japanese brand today dumped its standard three-year, 100,000km coverage period in favour of the five-year term now standard across the industry.

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...

2007 Suzuki Swift Sport review

About three years ago I moved onto my green P's, and with that I wanted to buy a new car. At the time I was driving a 1994 Ford laser GL with 300,000km on it. While still living at home and working full time I decided that it was time. After searching classified ads around the clock I had narrowed it down to a few cars - Suzuki Swift Sport, Ford Fiesta XR4 or a Mitsubishi Ralliart Colt (if I could find a 2010 model, as they were only approved for that year)...

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...
