The Suzuki Swift has won numerous awards including the 2006 Annual RJC Car of the Year and, perhaps more interestingly, The Most Fun Car to Drive in Japan. This comes as no surprise since the Swift features exceptional handling and performance. Of course, it also achieves excellent fuel economy and has a low cost of ownership. The Swift is a supermini for those who love to drive.
It is equipped with an in-line 4-cylinder DOHC VVT engine with 1.3 L (91 horsepower) and 1.5 L (110 horsepower) and 1.6 L sports unit (125 horsepower). As for the transmission, you can also choose between a sporty type 4 speed AT or a short stroke 5-speed manual.
Most grades of the Swift include MD / CD players, real leather-wrapped steering wheels, and 15 inch aluminum wheels. The cargo room is a 6: 4 split tumble folding design that creates a flat luggage room when you lower the backrest of the rear seat and lift the seat. Dual airbags and safety equipment such as 4 wheels ABS with EBD (electronic control braking force distribution system) that optimally distributes braking forces of front and rear wheels, and brake assist are set as standard. Some models of the Swift (normally from 2005 onwards) also offer a security alarm system that warns with a hazard lamp and a horn if the door is opened by breaking a window as well as an immobilizer that prevents vehicle theft by illegal duplication keys.
