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.

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...

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...

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...
