A most peculiar portfolio from a brand better known for its motorbikes. But just when you’re tearing your hair out over Suzuki’s ridiculously tarty off-roaders and limp city cars, they give us the Swift – a bloody good hatch. Only snobbery stands in its way – and you could change that if you wanted.
$5,920 - $6,620
Suzuki has more or less started the ultra-supermini segment with the Indian-built Alto. Cheap, but it's very evident.
$23,990 - $39,990
The merest hint of real off-road hacking potential, Jeep Wrangler style, is all but obliterated by the spectre of Campbelltown manicurists clip-clopping through Chingford.
$17,990 - $21,990
Not the choice of manicurists, but equally alien to Land Rover Defender appreciators looking for a change. Less comfortable than a full-body wax.
$15,990 - $23,990
A hatch so cheeky it rocks up at the Mini’s party with a four-pack of Special Brew, trashes the bathroom and leaves with the Mini’s girlfriend. New order?
$19,990 - $26,990
One of those terrifically bad jacked-up superminis, the point of which nobody can fathom. Nowhere near as good as a Nissan Dualis. Stop this nonsense, d’you hear?
