Car reviews - Suzuki - Swift - Sport CVT 5-dr hatch
The Swift Sport CVT is a barrel of fun, although we'd still opt for the manual
13 Apr 2012
THE charming little Suzuki Swift Sport is not the most technologically advanced or speedy hot hatch on the market, instead holding its own through sheer force of personality.
As a spiritual successor to the cult-classic Swift GTi from the early-1990s, the Swift Sport also draws on the brand’s long experience in the Junior World Rally Championship.
We were big fans of the car when we first drove it at the launch in February of this year.
However, that car had a manual gearbox, and our drive was on a racetrack. This time, though, we drive the optional CVT automatic with paddle shifters in more modest inner-urban environs.
