Suzuki Swift

The Suzuki Swift was one of the original small Japanese hatchbacks, first debuting as a boxy micro-hatch back in 1985.

The 1988 model is likely when most Australians saw it first, possibly wearing a badge that said ‘Holden Barina’. Since then, the Swift has grown into a small, five-door hatch, gaining popularity thanks to its sharp looks and sharper pricing. Even though choices are fairly limited – only one body style, a choice of two small petrol engines and a handful of trim levels – it’s still a strong seller for Suzuki.

Current prices range from $15,990 for the Swift GL to $26,490 for the Swift Sport Navigator.
