The third-generation Suzuki Swift took Australia by storm when it hit our roads in 2011. Six years on and Suzuki seems to have done it again with its all-new Suzuki Swift and Suzuki Swift Sport. These small cars keep true to the Swift’s reputation for driveability and comfort, all-the-while completely reinventing itself with modern technology in a way that’s sure to cement this iconic vehicle’s legacy.

In addition, customers may purchase the Suzuki safety pack, which includes Lane Departure Warning, Weaving Alert and Adaptive Cruise Control.
The Suzuki Swift Sport is a very similar vehicle to the Suzuki Swift, albeit it with a sportier interior, sleeker exterior, and a powerful 100kW engine.

If you like the look of the Suzuki Swift or the Celerio, but don’t think it’s quite large enough for your needs, then perhaps the Baleno is more your style. This car is marketed as ‘when space meets style,’ incorporating many of Suzuki’s small car features, while giving you a bit more space in the backseat and boot.

The Suzuki Ignis combines the manoeuvrability and convenience of a small car with the space and toughness of an SUV. It has a 180mm clearance, new-generation chassis and generous departure angles to help you conquer off-road terrain, as well a blend of retro styling and modern features to turn heads around town.

Suzuki Jimny Sierra
The Jimny Sierra is Suzuki’s small, tenacious off-roader. It doesn’t have all the high-tech features you find in other Suzuki vehicles, but it more than makes up for it in brute toughness. Suzuki says this car can be pushed further and harder than those ‘soft-roaders’ you see around town.
