Suzuki Swift updated for 2014

The Suzuki Swift range has been updated with more standard equipment and VAT-free offers

The Suzuki Swift range has been updated for 2014, with the revised line-up getting new gadgets and an additional paint colour option. Prices for the entry-level Suzuki Swift SZ2 start from £10,799, while the high-specification Suzuki Swift SZ4 can be yours from £14,039.

All four trims – SZ2, SZ3, SZ4 and Sport – now have a gear shift indicator as standard, which helps drivers reduce their overall fuel consumption by telling them the best time to change gear. A tyre pressure monitoring system is also included, warning you when your tyres are underinflated, which can otherwise turn your car into a potential hazard and also reduce its overall fuel efficiency.

Daytime running lights and front fog lights are now standard on SZ2, SZ3 and SZ4 trims, while the Suzuki Swift SZ4 now gets standard-fit satellite navigation and DAB radio.

With the exception of the Sport trim, all models can be had in the Amethyst Grey Pearl Metallic body paint for an additional £430 – taking the total number of paint options on SZ2, SZ3 and SZ4 trims up to eight.

The range is no longer available with a 1.3-litre diesel engine, which means you can only get a 1.2-litre petrol engine in SZ2, SZ3 and SZ4 models, while Sport trims just come with a 1.6-litre petrol engine. Those after the best fuel economy figures should go for the smaller engine and manual gearbox, which can do an impressive 56.5mpg, while emitting 116g/km of CO2.

The 1.6-litre petrol engine isn’t as economical as the 1.2-litre option, but still manages 44.1mpg with 147g/km of CO2 emissions – decent given the car's impressive performance.

If you hurry, you can get the Suzuki Swift for a reduced price with Suzuki’s current VAT-free offer. Prices for the entry-level SZ2 model on the VAT-free offer start from £8,999. This offer only applies to specific models registered between April 1 2014 and June 30 2014, with more information available at your nearest Suzuki dealership.
