Suzuki Swift SZ-L VAT-free offer extended

Remember the special edition Suzuki Swift SZ-L that was announced back at the start of the year? Well it’s good news, because the Japanese firm has re-introduced the model for the second half of the year with an incredible VAT-free price of £11,099 until 30 September 2014.

That’ll get you a three-door model based on the well-equipped SZ3 trim level, with the five-door Suzuki Swift SZ-L variant costing £11,599.

Being based on the SZ3 grade, the car boasts air conditioning, electric windows, USB and Bluetooth connectivity, LED daytime running lights, two-tone metallic paintwork and a contrasting Cool White roof, door mirrors and rear spoiler.

Safety standards are excellent too, with Suzuki’s ESP Electronic Stability Programme and seven airbags all included in the price – this helps make the current Suzuki Swift a full five-star Euro NCAP crash safety rated car.

It has performance to back up the extensive kit list, too – the Suzuki Swift SZ-L is powered by a 94hp 1.2-litre four-cylinder petrol engine that will sprint the car off the line and on to 62mph in 12.3 seconds.

Despite this nippy performance for around-town city driving and a back road blast, the Swift’s fuel economy is mighty impressive.

On the official EU combined cycle the little Suzuki will return 56.5mpg with just 116g/km CO2 emissions, meaning it’ll cost just £30 to tax for the year.

When it comes to running costs, it’s not just fuel and road tax that the Suzuki slashes. The Swift SZ-L is rated in insurance group 11E – exactly the same as the rest of the Swift range, bar for the Swift Sport – so that list of useful equipment doesn’t mean you’ll be penalised when it comes to insurance costs. Especially if you’re a young driver.

Finance is no problem either. With Suzuki’s range of flexible finance payment arrangements you’ll be able to pick up the Swift SZ-L five-door for as little as £145 per month.

With colour options such as Boost Blue or Cosmic Black available – alongside the striking white roof and other extras – if you’re after a style-led Suzuki Swift that won’t cost the earth to run but has plenty of premium features, then the SZ-L could be for you.
