Why a small car is the ideal choice
There are plenty of practical reasons to buy a small car – and every year the argument gets more compelling. Of course there are the obvious benefits – low initial price and better fuel economy. But here are a few you might not have thought about.
Easy to handle
Being small, our cars are easier to manoeuver, especially on narrow streets and in downtown traffic. At slow speeds and in parking lots, they’re easier to turn making it simple to get out of a tough spots. An upright driving position ensures the best possible visibility and makes getting in and out of the car a breeze.
Small on the outside, doesn’t have to mean small on the inside. Suzuki are experts when it comes to maximising internal space within a compact exterior. Tall roofs provide generous head room and a light, airy feel to the cabin. Cleverly designed rear seats can be folded down to give you the kind of space you would normally expect from a larger vehicle. And multiple stowage solutions give you plenty of room for baggage, groceries, sports equipment or kid’s gear.
Less to clean, more room in the garage
Do you wash your car at home? Then you know that the bigger the car, the longer it takes to wash. With a length of 3.85 metres and a width of 1.695 metres, you’ll be able to get your Swift shiny and clean in no time! Plus park your Suzuki comfortably in the garage with room to get out on both sides.
Suzuki takes safety very seriously. Our small cars are fitted with a comprehensive package of active and passive safety technologies that ensure consistently high international safety ratings. Passive measures include up to seven SRS airbags, side impact beams, decoupling mechanisms for brake and clutch pedals, 3-point ELR seat belts and active front seat belt pretensioners. An Electronic Stability Program (ESP®) supplements stability by combining three major functions: ABS with EBD, traction control and stability control.
Our small cars are engineered to maximise fuel efficiency and minimise CO2 emissions. Being small, they require fewer resources to build and create less waste when their useful life is over. Plus Suzuki take great pride in using a high percentage of recyclable materials in the manufacture of our vehicles.
Rather than being just a cheap alternative to larger cars, small cars have emerged as a smart, desirable choice of transportation. Overall, small cars require fewer materials, making them more affordable to purchase than larger vehicles.
Our Real Value price includes a 5 year Warranty and Roadside Assist package for total peace of mind. You also have the cost saving benefit of 12 month service intervals through our extensive network of nationwide dealerships.
Lower fuel consumption
Our small cars are lightweight and light on your pocket. Designed with smaller engines and lighter frames, small cars can achieve better fuel efficiency, saving you money at the pump. With fluctuating petrol prices, small cars are a better investment, especially if you commute to work every day.
