New 2011 swift review

Postby chris1388 » August 15th, 2011, 5:42 pm

Hey guys has anyone had the chance to check out the new 2011 swift? The regular swift that is. I am considering getting one in the near future cuz i just cant take this traffic and manual.

Any problems ?
How are they to drive?
Are they nippy?

I got a ride in one recently, has much more interior room than the previous model. It felt great, smooth and comfortable ride (even though was from just pos to uwi), felt powerful as well. I say take a test drive, I was impressed by it. When i heard 1.4 i was like... bleh. But now i changed my mind its very powerful. Climbed the lady young with 4 big people in the car with ac normals.

^^Why not buy a used Swift Sport auto? Might run you a bit less, and it might be more down your alley in terms of sporty-ness.

Alpha priorities shift a bit....i gonna be driving from arima to la romaine everyday and i want something automatic, head ache free, comfortable and fuel efficient. The automatic swift sport still gonna need premium and they not efficient at all.

Any other suggestions alpha seeing you know what im looking for now?

^^ah auto jimny :D :D rel fuel efficient.
My manual does Grande to Aranguez on $60-$80 a week, ac both ways. Same for the SX4 auto. My mom's SX4 burns the about same amount of gas as the jimny.

i eh sellin meh auto sport, yet, sorry :P

haven't driven the 2011 swift yet though, so i can't review it but i figure it's gonna tough downgrade from the ignis though. when i bought my sport auto, i sacrificed speed and fun for more comfort and the ability the loan my car to my family if need be. it surprised me though, cause i still have a lot of fun :cool:

I would think that's more attributed to driver input rather than engine efficiency, not so?

Depends on your budget in this case.

You could anything from a used 1.5 swift auto, to a brand new sx4 sport.

Ultimately you'd have to decide:

a) are you gonna be a suzuki band-wagonist? Or will you venture to other brands?
b) hatch or sedan?
c) as before, what's your budget?

Lol, I think you might be right there! But it is indeed very fuel efficient.
