The Swift Sport – ‘Best Hot Hatchback’

Mar 01, 2012


Suzuki is pleased to announce the new Swift Sport that went on sale just six weeks ago has been awarded the ‘Best Hot Hatchback’ at the Awards. The new performance flagship of the Swift model range was comprehensively judged by the editorial team and was the clear winner against some strong competition.

The new Sport scored 5 out of a possible 5 overall with the judges all agreeing that the new model combines agile handling, sparkling performance and an affordable price in perfect quantities.

The Swift Sport is available for £13,499 with a very high standard equipment specification which includes seven airbags, auto air conditioning, cruise control, Bluetooth connectivity and USB port, rear privacy glass, 17 inch alloy wheels – as well as metallic paint finish. HID Projector headlamps for both low and high beam are also fitted as standard – a safety feature that is either not available or is listed as a cost option amongst its direct competitors.

Cost of ownership is also lower than with the previous Sport model as emissions and fuel consumption have improved by around 10 per cent; insurance classification has gone down by four groups from 23 to 19 thanks to extensive use of high-tensile steel and computerised structural analysis which keeps the body light while promoting safety.

Dale Wyatt, Sales and Marketing Director, Suzuki GB PLC, comments: “We are of course really pleased with our award from which reinforces the message to our customers that Suzuki offers a great value and fun to drive new Swift Sport with higher standard specification, lower emissions and even better fuel consumption than before”
