With the exception of some color changes, the Suzuki Swift remains unchanged for '99.
This is it. This the car for those of you who need to buy a new vehicle but don't have much more than the lint in your pockets to spend. Suzuki Motor Corp., noted for its mini sport-utility wagons and motorcycles, had you in mind when they developed the Swift.
Calling Suzuki's entry-level hatchback Swift borders on false advertising. Fortunately for Suzuki, the Swift has other attributes that keep consumers from filing a class-action lawsuit. The most notable is its price; the Swift comes in at under $10,000. Heck, these days most people spend more on used cars without warranties than you'll pay for the Swift with its three year/36,000 mile worry-free coverage. What's more, the Swift offers amazing gas mileage: 39 mpg in the city, 43 mpg on the highway. Yes indeed, the Swift promises to be a cheap set of wheels no matter how you slice it.
The Swift has a more recognized cousin, the Chevrolet Metro, which tends to show up in rental fleets as the $19.00 per day special. The base Metro costs slightly less than the Swift and offers a mind-blowing 50 mpg on the freeway. The base Metro, however, has only a three-cylinder engine that produces a measly 55 horsepower. Step up to the Metro LSi, and you're paying more than a comparable Swift with the same engine. On that basis alone, we recommend the Swift.
The Swift is one of the few choices left for Americans who need inexpensive transportation and a warranty. In the category, we feel that the Swift is the best choice.
Laura's old car was costing her a small fortune every month for gas and repairs. She didn't even want to drive her kids to the park any more. But buying a new Kia Soul changed all that.
