Does it represent good value for the price? What features does it come with?
The Swift GLX sits on the dealer forecourt with an eyebrow-furrowing $22,990 on its windscreen. That's a lot for what is famously a “budget” hatchback. Thankfully, there's a lot in it, some of it quite unexpected in a car like this.
You get 16-inch alloys, a six-speaker stereo, climate control, a comprehensive safety package, reversing camera, keyless entry and start, active cruise control, sat nav, auto LED headlights and daytime running lights, auto high beam, leather steering wheel, powered folding mirrors, six-speed automatic and a space-saver spare.
The stereo and sat nav are run from a 7.0-inch central screen, which has Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. It's not bad, although the sound is a bit on the tinny side. Honestly, my ears aren't amazing, but that hint of canned fruit in the sound is obvious, even to me.
Just quietly, you also get rear disc brakes instead of drums, plus tilt and reach-adjustable steering, which are small upgrades from the lower models.
