1990 Suzuki Swift GLX 1.6


I love it!!!


Things that went wrong...

Not lots of problems really...

Just problems that time creates... and things need to be changed such as I once changed the gearbox and we recently changed the engine... we found an engine from a Suzuki Vitara that fits great and is almost the same... and as far as I can feel works the same...

General Comments:

Well... my comments are very positive...

That car is an animal... it weights too little... almost 800-900 Kgs and it has enough power to say bye bye to other brand new cars with a 1.6L engine...

The only thing is that it doesn't turn as good as it accelerates... but this can be fixed with new suspension... harder ones and with bigger tires...

I really love my car...

People keep saying to me that it is at least 100Bhp and I just tell them that sry guys... no it is 89...

But still nobody believes...

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

2000 Suzuki Swift GLX 1.3 Gasoline


Cheap, reliable, and pretty

General Comments:

My father owned an Alto for 17 years and this car is still running. So we decided to go for a Suzuki again. I have owned this car for only 4 months now, but I can say that I'm satisfied, I got more than I paid for.

The engine is a little noisy after 3000rpm, it certainly needs larger tires but other than that it's fun to drive and is very economic as far as fuel consumption is concerned.

I know a lot of Suzuki Swift owners and all of them agree that these cars are reliable, economic and with a few additions you can make a vast improvement on their looks and performance.

I would suggest this car to anyone that wants to buy a cheap car and have it for many years without significant problems.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Maruthi Alto is launched in 4 years back only. The writer is saying that his father is owned an alto 17yrs back. How?

There was an old Suzuki Alto as well, this is what the OP is referring to. Do a google image search for Suzuki Alto or even search this site and there are reviews for old Alto's.
