Which of th­ese three su­per­mi­nis of­fers the most su­per com­bi­na­tion of roomi­ness, prac­ti­cal­ity and per­for­mance?

SSUPERMINIS used to be af­ford­able run­abouts for get­ting from point A to point B.

But over time, con­sumers’ de­mands have in­creased, so th­ese lit­tle hatch­backs have had to be­come more than just cars that get you from point A to point B. They had to put the “su­per” in “su­per­mini”.

The three cars we’ve as­sem­bled here need no in­tro­duc­tion. The Honda Jazz, Mazda 2 and Suzuki Swift are house­hold names in Sin­ga­pore. Be it reg­u­lar drivers or en­thu­si­asts, th­ese mod­els will be men­tioned when­ever hatch­backs are the topic of con­ver­sa­tion. The Mazda 2 and Honda Jazz have been around for quite some time, and their pop­u­lar­ity from one gen­er­a­tion to the next goes to show how well re­ceived they are. Both hatch­backs have styling that ap­peals to a wide au­di­ence, and are each pow­ered by a nat­u­rally as­pi­rated 1.5-litre en­gine. Both are also known for their sporti­ness and keen han­dling. They are also re­li­able, which is a char­ac­ter­is­tic that ev­ery driver ap­pre­ci­ates.. Poised to chal­lenge the Mazda 2 and Honda Jazz is the lat­est Suzuki Swift, which is the only con­tender in this lineup with a tur­bocharged en­gine. How well does the Swift per­form? And will its over­all pack­age meet the “small” needs of su­per­mini buy­ers in Sin­ga­pore?

Con­tinue read­ing to find out what we think about th­ese cars.
