While the Suzuki folks are fixing my Ignis I have been given a Swift SZ5 to use.
At first I rather liked it enough to think maybe I should upgrade until 20 mins had passed after which time I was not so impressed.
From the get go I did not like the rock hard steering wheel but legroom was good. I discovered the paddles halfway home (it takes over an hour to get home) which on my Xbox I love to use but the novelty soon wore off on the Swift.
I was able to have the window fully down even at 70 and it did not blow my wig off unlike the Ignis which almost takes my head off at speeds over 25mph.
The worst part though was road noise from the tyres. It is almost as bad as the Celerio was with certain surfaces almost enough to give a person a headache. Just on that alone the Swift is a no no for me.
Also I felt like I was sitting on the tarmac..............all way too low for me. So when I come to get out my knees take a beating while I try to get upright.
Talking of sitting, the seats felt too hard; reminiscent of the Celerio seats so that after an hour I want to get out and stop the numb bum feeling. The passenger does not like the seat sides, great for stopping her from slithering about on hard cornering but otherwise a pain.
I did appreciate the performance; overtaking the dawdlers was better although I am not too sure that it is that much better than the Ignis but hey, it all helps.
It all adds up to this being a young man boy racer inclined vehicle and after an hour I had determined I would keep the Ignis thank you!
Get it right, use Hammerite. Failing that use Duck tape.
When the blue light is flashing I am kidding.
Why simplify when it's simpler to complicate.
