Driven: the newly turbocharged Suzuki Swift Sport
How much: £17,999
What we say: “It doesn’t understeer (unless you enter corners at totally loutish speeds), turning in keenly and gripping tenaciously. The old Swift Sport had lower, easier to reach limits; this a car you have to work a bit harder if you want to unearth its aggressive side.
“While it may be a touch more sensible on first acquaintance, I imagine it’ll take longer to ‘complete’ than the old car, which to many drivers may always have been a stepping stone to a Clio RS or Fiesta ST anyway.”
