Suzuki Swift GL 2017 review: snapshot

EXPERT RATING
6
The cheapest way into the Suzuki range is also - if we’re being brutally honest - the least appealing.

The cheapest way into the Suzuki range is also - if we’re being brutally honest - the least appealing.

The $16,990 GL sits below the $17,990 GL Navigator, the $19,490 Navigator with Safety Pack, and the top-of-the-range GLX Turbo $22,990 - though those are all the drive-away prices.

But its manual-only gearbox, lack of in-cabin entertainment and severe shortage of safety equipment (there’s not even a reversing camera) all adds up to a less-than-enticing offering, especially given how close in price the better-equipped models are.

Its 1.2-litre petrol engine will produce 66kW at 6000rpm and 120Nm at 4400rpm, and it’s paired exclusively with a five-speed manual gearbox.

But to be honest, there are much better Swifts for not much more money.
