The new Suzuki Swift has been awarded the ‘Best Small Car’ by the Association of Scottish Motoring Writers. The Suzuki Swift also won the ‘Safety’ category for its equipment list of seven airbags, ESP and Five stars NCAP crash test rating which is available across the range as standard.
This latest Suzuki Swift is slightly longer with a 50mm increase in wheelbase.
The lower profile tyres allow for better handling and the extensive use of higher strength steel makes the new bodyshell lighter and stiffer than before. The body design has also helped improve impact safety for pedestrians as well as occupants. The interior design of the Suzuki Swift now has a more dynamic feel, featuring black as its keynote colour with accents of silver throughout the car.
David Seward, Senior Director Sales and Marketing said “at Suzuki we are well known as the small car experts and these highly prestigious awards really help reinforce that the Suzuki Swift is a very important model and we are delighted that it is so highly regarded by the Scottish Motoring media.”
The Suzuki Swift is on sale now and prices start from £9,995.
