The all new Suzuki Swift goes on sale next week in the UK
The all new Suzuki Swift goes on sale next week in the UK. The Suzuki Swift has just been awarded one of Europe's safest cars achieving a maximum five star rating in the 2010 test by Euro NCAP.
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.
The new Suzuki Swift attained a score of 94 per cent for adult occupant protection, 82 per cent for child; 62 per cent for pedestrian and 71 per cent for the provision of safety assistance devices with an overall total of 83 per cent. This total exceeded the score of 75 per cent required to achieve the 5 star rating set by Euro NCAP.
The Suzuki Swift includes seven airbags as standard across the range which includes driver’s knee airbag as well as whiplash mitigating front seats. Active safety equipment includes ESP (Electronic Stability Programme) which is also fitted as standard equipment across the new Suzuki Swift range.
