Suzuki Swift 2011-2017 used car review
RACV checks out the reliability and value of the second-hand Suzuki Swift.
Suzuki Swift has been a stalwart of the light car class in Australia for several decades. Built in Japan, it has a long-standing reputation for being economical, reliable and very easy to drive. The smart-looking FZ series (January 2011-2017) built on the strengths and character of its successful predecessor. Its compact size is ideal for city commuting, while it’s still a capable traveller on the open road.
On today’s used-car scene, the most common model is the GL (including the GL Navigator which includes satellite navigation), followed by the higher-spec GLX and the performance-focused Sport. While the equipment level improved slightly with the 2013 model-year upgrade, the MYl4 versions onwards are a much better proposition, as the list of standard features grew substantially with this upgrade. Automatic transmissions dominate the offerings on the used market, but for those who prefer a manual, there are still enough advertised.
