Suzuki Swift GLX Turbo 2017 review: snapshot

EXPERT RATING
7.5
It’s a sizeable jump between the second-from-top and the top-of-the-range Swifts.

It’s a sizeable jump between the second-from-top and the top-of-the-range Swifts, with buyers asked to climb from the $17,990 GL Navigator with Safety Pack to the $22,990 GLX Turbo - a $5k step.

That money, though, will buy you a different engine and gearbox, swapping the old-school 1.2-litre unit for a clever turbocharged 1.0-litre 'Boosterjet' engine that produces 82kW at 5500rpm and 160Nm at 1500rpm. It also  pairs with a different automatic gearbox, ditching the CVT in favour of a six-speed torque converter unit.

The GLX Turbo also builds on the standard equipment of the GL Navigator with Safety Pack, too, adding push-button start, better 16-inch alloys, digital aircon and LED headlights with a dusk-sensing function to the standard-feature list.

While every Swift arrives with front, front-side and curtain airbags, along with ABS brakes and traction aids, the GLX Turbo adds AEB, Lane Departure Warning and adaptive cruise control.
