A Chapelhouse buyer’s guide to the Suzuki Swift

Welcome to the Chapelhouse guide to buying a Suzuki Swift. 

We're going to cover all bases regarding Suzuki's flagship supermini and leave no stone unturned about all the great benefits of buying a Swift, whether it's a New or a Used model.

Performance

As the name suggests, the Suzuki Swift is a nimble and agile hatchback. It is an ideal choice for the city driver who requires quick responses and easy steering. Best of all, it's fun to drive! 

The Swift is available in three spec trims: the entry-level SZ-L, the mid-range SZ-T, and the top of the range SZ5. 

The higher two trim levels are fitted with CVT automatic transmission as standard. The CVT system can vary the actual gear ratio continuously, and reduces shift-shock in comparison with a conventional automatic gearbox. 

As with all new Suzuki cars, the Swift comes as hybrid as standard. The 1.2-litre Dualjet engine works with a 12-volt battery to power the car's enhanced mild hybrid system. It is Suzuki's Dualjet engine technology that gives the Swift that extra kick. 

The lightweight hybrid system adds just 6.2kg to the weight of the car, meaning its overall efficiency is in no way compromised, helping to keep those running costs low.

The Swift SZ-L can return up to a huge 59.7mpg, meaning fewer trips to the fuel station at a time when the cost of motoring seems to be ever-increasing. 

This easily outperforms the Vauxhall Corsa GS (52.3.mpg) and the Ford Fiesta ST-Line (51.4mpg) when it comes to fuel efficiency. 

The CO2 emissions of just 106g/km will also put you in a lower road tax bracket too, compared to many other city hatchbacks. 

And with a name like the Swift, you can't be much of a slouch either. Accelerating from 0-62mph will take a speedy 12.2 seconds.

Technology

For a compact supermini, the Swift packs more technology than you might think. It is fitted with a 7-inch touchscreen panel that allows for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring. This means you can safely use your favourite apps and Sat Nav hands-free on the go.

The Swift comes with a rear parking camera on all trims as standard, as well as DAB radio, Bluetooth, Air Con, and Adaptive Cruise Control.

The Dual Sensor Brake Support is also available on all Swift specs. It detects the risk of collision with a vehicle in front, warning the driver to apply the brakes. When travelling at higher speeds, additional warnings including an audible buzzer and notification on the multi-information display unit.

Lane Departure Warning (LDW) and Weaving Alert Function (WAF) are also handy tools in the Swift's armoury. 

The steering wheel vibrates at higher speeds when the LDW detects the car veering into another lane without prior indication. The WAF also works in a similar way when the car weaves from side to side within a lane. A buzzer will sound and a light on the instrument panel will alert the driver.

Suzuki Swift Sport

The Swift Sport, as the name gives away, is the sportier big brother of the Swift. It has a more powerful 1.4-litre Boosterjet turbo engine, and a larger 48-volt hybrid system. It also provides a greater level of torque too - 235Nm from 2,000rpm. 

Again, the Sport's hybrid system is lightweight in design to retain the Swift's fun-to-drive ethos.

The more muscular and aerodynamic design sets it apart from the standard Swift, giving the Sport model an identity of its own. It has bigger alloy wheels, at 17 inches, and sporty bucket seats to give that racing car feel. 

Other standout features of the Swift Sport are its specially tuned twin exhaust system, six-speed gearbox, keyless entry and start, and a six-speaker sound system.

Is it a Used Suzuki Swift you're looking for?

At Chapelhouse Suzuki, we don't just sell new Suzukis. We also stock hundreds of high quality and well-conditioned Suzuki used cars too, including the Swift.

There are many benefits of buying a used Swift. The most obvious one of those is a lower cost compared to buying new. A car's value begins to depreciate as soon as it leaves the showroom, meaning you can get a great deal on a Used Swift that is still in excellent condition. 

Suzuki is renowned for its reliability as a car brand, so you can be confident of your purchase for years to come. 

Suzuki Approved Used

When buying a Suzuki Approved Used Swift, you get many extras that you wouldn't normally get from another manufacturer. Not only are you guaranteed a Used Suzuki that is still in very good condition, many Approved Used Suzukis will come with low mileage and little wear and tear.

All Approved Used Suzukis have had full multi-point vehicle inspections and full provenance checks, to ensure that there is no outstanding finance or accident damage. 

You are also entitled to a Suzuki warranty and roadside assistance for 12 months in the unfortunate occasion that you ever might need it. Suzuki will even throw in a 14-day no quibble return guarantee in the extremely unlikely event you're unsatisfied with your purchase. 

Limited Edition Swifts

Another benefit of buying a Used Swift is you might find a special edition or a rare version that is no longer being manufactured. 

One example of this is the Suzuki Swift Attitude. The special edition Attitude model was launched in 2019 for a brief run. As the name suggests, you get a lot more from an Attitude than you did from a regular Swift. Features include a mesh front grille, carbon-fibre effect body kit, rear spoiler, and two-tone 16-inch alloy wheels for that extra sporty feel!

Flexible financing

When it comes to buying a new or used car, the overall price may seem a little daunting at first. This is why we can arrange flexible financing options for our customers from a range of financial institutions. 

The Chapelhouse sales team can find you the very best deal to suit your budget and keep those monthly payments as low as you need them to be. We even have a selection of used cars that come with 0% APR over five years without a deposit required.

Extension of warranty

The great thing about Suzuki's Service Activated Warranty is that it's available for used cars too. Even if there has been a gap in the service history from the previous owner, the car can still be eligible for the Service Activated Warranty for seven years after its registration date, providing it goes through a Suzuki Vehicle Health Check first. 

When you book a Suzuki service with Chapelhouse, you are also entitled to a Free MOT for life
