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.
£7,312 - £9,252
Suzuki has spotted a not-quite-wide-enough gap in its line-up between the Swift and Splash and filled it with this. A Tata Nano for people who value their legs.
£15,021 - £22,396
The Vitara is good value, will tackle muddy stuff easily and looks perfectly acceptable. Not refined enough, though.
£11,232 - £12,537
Plodding, that's the best way to describe the Jimny. Looks like it was born in a bygone era, puny engine.
£8,987 - £10,792
city car, twinned with Vauxhall’s Agila. A good all-rounder from Suzuki, it's a step up from regular superminis in terms of space, but's it no fun to drive.
£9,702 - £13,017
The latest Swift is a fine all rounder: not the most refined, but able and amusing.
Can you spot the difference? Us neither. But who cares: the all-new Swift Sport is better than ever
£11,336 - £16,056
It's been doing the whole Nissan Juke thing before the Juke. Still a curiosity, but it's not without merit.
