I mention the Euro hot hatches in the same breath as the Swift Sport, but it is a mite unfair to do so. While I maintain the Suzi is about four grand too expensive, it's five grand cheaper than its remaining rival (before on-roads), the rejuvenated Fiesta ST. If Hyundai drops the i20 N at anything under $30,000, the Swift Sport is in serious bother.
Setting all that aside, your $26,990 buys you 17-inch alloy wheels, a six-speaker stereo, climate control, reversing camera, keyless entry and start, active cruise control, sat nav, auto LED headlights with auto high beam, auto wipers, power mirrors and windows, sports front seats, an improved safety package and a tyre repair kit.
So, uh, not a lot for a fair bit of cash in a very small package. But second-hand values are extremely healthy, so Suzuki is doing something right.
The six speaker stereo is powered by Suzuki's standard 7.0-inch touchscreen head unit that is pretty ordinary (although better than most Toyota touchscreens) but does have Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The screen is a bit low-res and the colours washed out, but it's fine.
