The Suzuki Swift Sport has long been a car embraced by serious drivers who know a great handling hot hatch when they see it. Though not especially powerful, it's agile, responsive and brilliant fun for not a lot of money. Few potential buyers know this, so the idea with this third generation model back in 2017 was to widen its appeal with a smarter interior, lower running costs, a little more grunt and even sharper handling. Let's check the original version of this third generation Swift Sport design out as a used buy.
Over the years, we've begged Suzuki not to change their Swift Sport's simple, uncomplicated formula but with this third generation model, they did and, rather to our surprise back in 2017, we found ourselves to be rather enamoured by this end result. This third generation Swift Sport was quicker, more efficient and better equipped than its two predecessors, yet proves to be still as much fun as ever. Sure, other fast superminis offer greater levels of straight line performance for not a lot more, but they're mostly not as safe or as well equipped, they'll be less frugal to run and in most cases they'll be less pleasant to use over poorer surfaces.
Of course, none of these things will be compelling reasons for Swift Sport purchase - and they shouldn't be. What really matters here is that you get old-school GTi fun without old-school crudeness. Need convincing that power isn't everything in a performance car? If so, you need to drive this one. We guarantee it'll surprise you.
