Five star safety is just one of the rea­sons Suzuki Swift re­mains New Zealand’s favourite su­per­mini.

Suzuki Swift holds a 5 Star EURONCAP rat­ing in crash safety – which is the high­est pos­si­ble level of safety glob­ally. What’s more, Swift ex­ceeded the tough stan­dards to such a level it was listed as one of the best per­form­ing cars of 2010.

Swift led its class in adult oc­cu­pant and child safety. Ev­ery model has 7 airbags, in­clud­ing a newly adopted knee air bag. ABS and an elec­tronic sta­bil­ity pro­gramme (ESP™) are also stan­dard, giv­ing you greater ve­hi­cle con­trol. A stronger yet lighter im­pact ab­sorb­ing bodyshell, and whiplash mit­i­gat­ing front seats for ex­tra pro­tec­tion in a rear im­pact ac­ci­dent are among Swift’s many other safety fea­tures.

Swift takes bet­ter care of the en­vi­ron­ment too, with its new 1.4 litre en­gine care­fully de­signed to pro­vide in­creased fuel ef­fi­ciency and low CO2 emis­sions, while de­liv­er­ing a brisk per­for­mance and highly en­joy­able ride.

Com­fort is para­mount, from the height-ad­justable driver’s seat to the stan­dard air-con­di­tion­ing. Suzuki’s at­ten­tion to de­tail even ex­tends to the in­stru­ment panel, which is clearly and log­i­cally ar­ranged so ev­ery­thing is ex­actly where you’d ex­pect to find it. The roomy in­te­rior of­fers a sur­pris­ing amount of leg, shoul­der and head­room, and ev­ery inch has been con­sid­ered to pro­vide max­i­mum stor­age. That means you can en­joy all the ben­e­fits of a com­pact car, and still en­joy a sense of space around you.

It’s not just in­dus­try ex­perts singing the praises of Swift – Suzuki own­ers were found to be the most sat­is­fied driv­ers in a re­cent sur­vey of over 2.9 mil­lion driv­ers across New Zealand. Suzuki’s ‘Real Value’ drive­away pric­ing con­tin­ues to be a big con­trib­u­tor. Swift is priced from just $20,500, which in­cludes 12 months reg­is­tra­tion, war­rant of fit­ness, 3 year/100,000 km war­ranty and a full tank of fuel.

It’s lit­tle won­der then that Swift has been the top sell­ing small car in New Zealand for a record-break­ing seven years, and was recog­nised as New Zealand Au­to­car Small Car of the Year 2011. And that new 1.6 litre Swift Sport - the highly an­tic­i­pated flag­ship model that’s just been re­leased in New Zealand - won Best Buy Hot Hatch in the UK be­fore it was even launched.
