Expert review

The current Suzuki Swift (2010-) might look similar to the previous model, but there are plenty of changes underneath the body and it's actually built on an entirely new chassis. It was initially offered with a 1.2-litre petrol engine before a 1.3-litre diesel arrived in 2011, followed by a 134bhp Swift Sport in 2012 and a four-wheel-drive Swift 4x4 in 2013. Are any of them any good? Read our full review to find out.
