The Association of Scottish Motoring Writers has voted the Suzuki Swift, Best Small Car. The Swift also won in the safety category for its combination of 7 air bags and excellent crash test rating.
The newest Swift has gone through some improvements, such as the addition of stronger steel, a longer wheelbase, and low profile tyres to effect better handling. With the stronger steel comes some body shape changes that have improved safety for occupants and pedestrians, as well.
To go with the new exterior, some interior redesign was done, also. The new interior works elements of silver highlights through a basic black as the key component colour.
Suzuki says that they are very honoured to receive the award from Scottish motoring writers and that it emphasizes their brand as small car building experts. The Swift, they say, is one of their most popular and important models. The Suzuki Swift starts at just under £10,000.
