First spy pictures of the three-door supermini
25 January 2010

These are the first spy pictures of the all-new three-door Suzuki Swift supermini, which will arrive in the UK at the end of this summer.

Sources within the company describe the new car as “a design evolution of the current model. It looks more grown up, but will have the same sort of appeal."

The small hatchback is the biggest-selling model in Suzuki’s line-up, accounting for over 54,000 sales in the UK since the car was launched in 2005, and the company makes no secret of how vital the new model is.

It will ride on a completely new platform, and will feature a range of small petrol engines that will utilise advanced variable-valve technology and possibly turbocharging to improve economy and performance.

There are no details regarding the diesel engines available, but with Volkswagen’s recently acquired 20 per cent stake in Suzuki there is speculation that the German maker could provide the diesel tech in the new Swift.

Our Verdict

Suzuki Swift 2010-2013

The Suzuki Swift is better than ever - but is that good enough, when the crowded supermini segment is filled with excellent alternatives?

Expect prices to remain competitive, with the range starting at around £10,000.

I hope they resolve the quality on this version. The last one looked good but was pretty shoddy in its execution.

If I want an autonomous car, I'll take a taxi.
