2009 Suzuki Swift XS 1.5 petrol from Australia and New Zealand
Excellent value for money
No problems with the car.
We purchased this car from the main Suzuki dealer near us, but it was a Japanese import - not NZ new. We chose this car as it had all the features of the LTD version (additional airbags, fog lights, alloys etc), but was a fraction of the price.
We looked at other versions, like the sport, but the ride wasn't as smooth and the plastics made a noise.
The car we chose was in excellent condition. My only complaints were for the stereo, which required a band expander and wasn't capable of playing MP3s. Also the fuel consumption gauge was displaying the Japanese format, which is different from the equation we usually use in NZ.
Otherwise I am exceptionally happy with the Swift, and enjoy driving it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
