wsMm20's review of Suzuki Swift GTI

“Gets better with age”

★★★★★

written by wsMm20 on 31/01/2023

This car is now 32 years old and has led a pampered life almost entirely indoors, so is in near-new condition. It looks refreshing after being accustomed to what appears before me on the roads in 2023.

These cars were basic, lightweight and with little refinement when they were introduced, and now it feels like a go-cart compared to anything else. Mechanically it inspires great confidence in its durability and simplicity. The light weight means that suspension, brake and steering hardware have it easy. Most of the parts on this car are original, with only belts and tires being replaced. It has about 155,000 km which is just under 100,000 miles.

If this car wasn't so rare and special, I would have no problem with using it as a commuter or for long distance jaunts. Aside from the great reliability, it returns 5.5L/100km consistently which is better than most modern vehicles 30 years later ... considering the performance, a respectable performance/economy combination even by today's standards for a gas-powered car.
