Suzuki is revising its Swift supermini range for 2010 with the introduction of three new equipment grades.
Previously available in GL and GLX trims, from January next year the Suzuki Swift will come in SZ2, SZ3 and SZ4 equipment levels, in line with other models in the Suzuki range.
Suzuki Swift equipment
Standard kit on SZ2 includes six airbags, electric front windows, MP3-capable CD player, leather trimmed steering wheel with audio controls, and body-coloured mirrors and door handles.
SZ3 adds heated electric mirrors, air conditioning and front fog lights; SZ4 includes automatic air conditioning, keyless go and 15-inch alloy wheels.
The engine choice is reduced slightly to 1.3-litre petrol and 1.3-litre turbodiesel, with the previous 1.5-litre petrol now only available with an automatic gearbox. The 1.6-litre Swift Sport junior hot hatch continues as before.
Prices for new Suzuki Swift
The Suzuki Swift is one of the forgotten heros of the supermini sector, offering a fun driving experience, good visibility and sharp styling. Some 54,000 have been sold here since the current model first went on sale in 2005, and over 1 million have been sold worldwide.
Prices for the 2010 Suzuki Swift range remain highly competitive, starting at £9,190 – some £2,105 cheaper than the current £11,295 starting point for a Ford Fiesta.
