Suzuki Swift Sport clinches “Best Buy” hot hatchback award

The Suzuki Swift Sport has been voted a “Best Buy” hot hatchback in 2013 What Car? Awards.

The sporty Japanese hatchback took the plaudits from What Car? magazine – and it’s not the first time the publication has praised the tuned supermini.

The Suzuki Swift Sport is all about its zesty high-performance engine. The 136hp 1.6-litre four-cylinder petrol unit delivers a brilliant turn of speed, completing the 0-62mph sprint in 8.7 seconds, and a fruity exhaust note that delights.

Despite a healthy slug of power from the Swift Sport’s motor, the variable valve timing unit affords excellent control over the combustion, meaning brilliant efficiency, too.

The Suzuki Swift Sport will return 44.1mpg combined with just 147g/km CO2 emissions.

It’s superbly flexible and practical, as well – it’ll seat four with 211 litres of luggage space, but stow the split folding rear seats down and you’ll have a total of 528 litres to fill.

While this is an added bonus, the car really is about performance. The Suzuki Swift Sport’s lightweight chassis gives the vehicle brilliant agility, with a flat and level cornering stance.

The car also offers a great blend of ride comfort and refinement for when a B-road blast is not on the agenda. With the smooth engine mated to a six-speed gearbox and cruise control, it’ll eat the miles easily leaving you in brilliant comfort.

Priced at just £13,749 with an amazing amount of equipment fitted a standard – including Bluetooth, automatic headlights, cruise control, climate control, an MP3 compatible CD player, USB connectivity, privacy glass and 17-inch alloy wheels – the Suzuki Swift Sport offers great value for money, too.

Editor-in-chief of What Car? magazine, Chas Hallett agrees:

“The Suzuki Swift Sport is proof that you don’t need a lot of money to have an awful lot of fun.

“It scores well on insurance costs and real world fuel economy – but it will also put a huge grin on your face.”
