Carsguide Journalist Tom White had this to say at the time: When we ran all the numbers for each of our CarsGuide scoring criteria, I was genuinely surprised to see how close this race was. Each of these hatchbacks is an excellent choice in the segment, and each have their own clear pros and cons in the specs tested here.

Suzuki Swift 2021 Accessories

For 2021, all model Swifts gain auto-up/down windows, heated side mirrors, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert and rear parking sensors, but we’re most excited over the newly-added digital speedometer.

Still, the safety/convenience roll call is long, with autonomous emergency braking (AEB), lane departure warning with steering assist, forward collision warning, adaptive cruise control, four-wheel disc brakes, six airbags, anti-lock brakes with electronic brake-force distribution and brake-assist, and stability/traction controls all present.

Keeping with luxury themes, the GLX Turbo also ushers in telescopic/tilt steering adjustment, paddle shifters, sat-nav, reverse camera, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto support, Bluetooth audio and telephony connectivity, electric-folding/heated door mirrors, keyless entry/start, climate control air-con with pollen filter, six-speaker audio and 16-inch alloy wheels.

Suzuki Swift 2021 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Suzuki Swift here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • My Bluetooth button is not working either on the head unit or on the steering wheel in my 2020 Suzuki Swift...

    Since the Bluetooth is refusing to respond to either the head unit or steering wheel controls, it’s likely to be a problem with the unit itself, rather than a simple switch failure.

    In any case, your car is still under factory warranty, so take it back to the dealership and make it Suzuki’s problem. Sometimes these units can be reset by disconnecting the power to them for a period of time, but unless you know the factory procedure, you’re flying blind. Back to the dealer.

  • Why does my 2012 Suzuki Swift struggle going up hills?

    This model Swift was recalled to check and tighten, if necessary, the bolts that connect the torque converter to the car’s engine. However, if these were to fail or fall out (as happened in some cases) it would be a one-off event and the car then wouldn’t work at all.

    Your problem sounds more like a worn transmission which is not accepting the load you put on it when you try to accelerate. This could be worn bands or some other component inside the transmission. CVTs are pretty complex things and rely on physical parts like bands and pulleys as well as hydraulic bits and pieces to take drive to the wheels. It would also be worth checking the torque converter, as a damaged or worn unit can also produce the symptoms you’re seeing. I’d start with checking that the recall was carried out and work backwards from there.

  • Why has my 2009 Suzuki Swift lost power?

    Modern engines like the Suzuki’s use literally dozens of sensors to keep the engine’s computer informed on the operating temperature, quality of the fuel, coolant temperature, ambient temperature, camshaft position and lots, lots more. If just one of those sensors starts to offer up false or misleading information to the computer, the whole operation of running the engine can be compromised. That’s when you’ll get rough running and/or stalling as well as the excessive fuel consumption you’ve noted.

    Rather than starting to change sensors on an ad hoc basis (which could take weeks and hundreds of dollars, and even then not arrive at a solution) the best advice is to have the car electronically scanned. At that point, the car’s computer is a good chance to tell the interrogating computer what ails it, and then you can zero in on that component and replace only the parts that are the problem.

  • Suzuki Swift Bluetooth: How to Use Bluetooth in a Suzuki Swift?

    To connect your mobile phone to the Suzuki Swift’s Bluetooth, you must have the vehicle stationary and your phone’s Bluetooth switched on and set to Discoverable. The next step is to press the Setup button on the car’s media-control panel. The setup menu will be displayed and you can then turn the Tune knob to select Setup and then press the same knob to confirm that selection. Turn the Tune knob again to select Pairing and press the knob to confirm that selection.

Suzuki Swift 2021 Interior

Swift’s stylishly upright squareness and wide-opening doors pay entry/egress dividends, big time. Most people can simply climb in and out, as per most compact SUVs. Easy.

Once sat ahead of a beautifully sparse dashboard, you’ll also appreciate the excellent forward vision that the near-upright pillars offer, as well as the generous headroom and vast degree of adjustability offered by the driver’s seat and tilt/telescopic steering column.

The centre console is dominated by Suzuki’s ever-present touchscreen featuring a colourful and logical quadrant of audio, telephony, sat-nav and vehicle-settings functions.

Beneath that, the single-zone climate control system brings effective cooling, heating and de-misting as required, though the fan adjustment isn’t intuitively sited where you may expect it to be.

The Swift may be style-savvy, but Suzuki’s thought of everything when it comes to packaging, with heaps of storage up front, including a small but useful glovebox size, decent bottle slots in the doors and room for bits and pieces in the lower-console area.

The same more or less applies out back too, though the faddish pillar-mounted door handles might be beyond the reach of smaller arms. Again, wide doors and a tall ceiling allow for easy entry, and once there, the amount of space is actually startling if you’re coming in from other superminis. Even long-legged riders can sit without their knees touching the front seats, with the added bonus of there being room for big feet under them. That’s something you could never say about older Swifts.

Some people may find the propensity of black plastic to be a bit cheap-looking, but the fact is that everything is extremely well screwed together, with no squeaks or rattles.

Further back, the luggage area is deep but not very long, offering up an adequate 242L, though of course the split/fold rear backrests do fold forward to extend that up to 556L. However, the resulting floor area is also stepped.
