Is there anything interesting about its design?
It's gone a little cutesy, this new Swift, which does retain a fairly obvious family resemblance with the cars of old, just with some of harder edges rounded out.
The bonnet and grille have been smoothed over and widened, while the rear now looks a little more bulging in places, a little less sharp, than the old car. Hidden rear door handles, a tiny rear lip spoiler and some clever uses of black on the body all add a sense of style to the little Swift.
Inside, you can never truly forget you’re sitting in a cheap(ish) car - even in the more expensive models - where hard plastics line the doors and dash, though there are some nifty design elements to break up interior styling, especially in everything but the base model, where the black-framed touchscreen lifts the ambience in the cabin.
