Our pick of the Swift bunch, the GL Navigator with Safety Pack blends affordability with the best of the safety and technology equipment to emerge as our Goldilocks of the range.

Sitting above the $16,990 GL (all prices drive-away) and $17,990 GL Navigator, and below the $22,990 GLX Turbo, the $19,490 Safety Pack model will leave you wanting for little in the cabin.

Under the bonnet is the same 1.2-litre petrol engine producing 66kW at 6000rpm and 120Nm at 4400rpm as the entry-level GL, only it swaps the manual for a CVT auto.

You’ll also find proper 16-inch alloy wheels and an Apple CarPlay/Android Auto-equipped 7.0-inch touchscreen and standard satellite navigation.

Safety is covered with a reversing camera, AEB, Lane Departure Warning and adaptive cruise control, which join the base safety offering of front, front-side and curtain airbags, along with ABS brakes and traction aids.
