Suzuki Swift Sport

Auto Express - - Our Cars -

WHEN Suzuki re­vealed the lat­est Swift Sport, it sep­a­rated the warm hatch from its su­per­mini sib­ling by launch­ing it with unique Cham­pion Yel­low paint. So of course, when spec­c­ing our long-term test car, there was only one colour we wanted.

But it seems ev­ery­one else thought the same, as re­views and fea­tures ed­i­tor Rich In­gram found out on a trip to Bed­ford to visit our col­leagues at sis­ter ti­tle evo. As he pulled into the car park, evo’s iden­ti­cal yel­low test car was hid­ing in plain sight. As Suzuki of­fers so few op­tions, the two Sports were iden­ti­cal, with the same wheels, the same lights and the same body trim; even the in­te­rior up­hol­stery was iden­ti­cal.

Else­where, the Swift Sport’s driv­ing dy­nam­ics con­tinue to im­press. Rich found the hatch­back great fun on the tight and twist­ing roads near Bed­ford, while on the mo­tor­way the Suzuki re­turned nearly 50mpg. It’s not as quiet or re­fined as some of its more per­for­mance-fo­cused ri­vals, how­ever.
