    Suzuki Swift GL Road Test. A tad smaller than the bulk of its competition, the Swift is a sort of go-to choice for those wanting to step aside from.

    Wednesday, 7 Jun View. And then came the Swift. But the standout in the centre console by far is the touchscreen. Of course just as responsive to the touch, using the map and finding addresses was quick and painless.

    Suzuki Swift GL Navigator Review

    Like the Holden Barina I just handed back, the Swift has been on the market for the same amount of time, since the mids.

    The Swift is in its third generation, which was released in It seems longer than that for this generation, as there are just so many Swifts on the road — you see them everywhere. The Swift is a good-looking small car. It has just the right proportioning.

    It just looks good and when you see one of the Sport models on the road, they stand out from the crowd. Is the Swift a good looker? The chicken thinks so, and even crossed the road to check it out. The interior of the GL Swift does not look cheap and the plastics, while still quite hard, look classy and not like they will fall apart anytime soon. No rattles or bangs or squeaks from anywhere.

    The interior of our test model was black, and that along with the black plastics made the interior a bit dark. Suzuki could check out the Fiat Panda or Barina Spark we recently tested to see how they do a cheap car interior but make it look bright and welcoming.

    Not that the Swift was bad, just dark. It was good to have an instrument cluster with a temperature gauge, so many cars now just have a warning light. Then again there is no rev counter, which again is out of the norm even in this price range. One word that springs to mind for the Swift GL, is Basic. Want to know what the temperature is outside? Steering wheel controls for the stereo? Reversing camera, or rear sensors? Not in this model. No bells and whistles really, just a nice engine and a nice shape — and the fact that it drives great is a bonus.

    The Swift shows its age on that one, but that OD Off button is just so handy for a bit of engine braking, or stopping the transmission hunting up and down. Add to that a 5-year warranty and the Swift starts to look pretty appealing, even with the basic equipment levels.

    I get it now. I get why there are so many Swifts on the road. They are a brilliant small car. In fact, I kept comparing it to the Jazz I had a month or so ago. At almost the half-way point, this was a good time to check on the cars we have had so far. Not the extras, or the looks or comfort. And then came the Swift. I had just handed back the Holden Barina Spark 1.

    But oh how the Swift surprised me! The handling of the Swift is O for Awesome. It sat almost flat, and before it headed to understeer, the tyres would start to let go. Not only that, it was fun doing it. The steering had reasonable feel — not great, but certainly not bad either. This is one of those cars where the chassis could do with more power. More than once I felt it really needed a bit more oomph to reach its best.

    Downhill was fine, and fun, and uphill was great but at times that 4-speed auto left a bit of a hole between gears. A grin-worthy drive if you are on your own and the road allows it.
