It's nice to be able to report that this Swift Sport is not only one of the most genuine hot hatches out there but also just about the most affordable. A budget of around £18,000 doesn't buy you much of anything that's in any way desirable in the modern small car market these days - but it will get you one of these. The buying proposition is simple, a single five-door bodystyle with a single six-speed gearbox option and one decently kitted trim level.
So this car's affordable, something which, rather pleasingly, hasn't stopped it also being very well equipped, provided kit including a Bluetooth-compatible Smartphone Linkage Display Audio Display unit with a 7-inch touchscreen and a SD Card 3D-map navigation. Aesthetic touches include carbon fibre-style embossing for the front grille, the front-lip spoiler, the side skirts and the rear diffuser, plus thin-spoke 17-inch alloy wheels. This car's safe too, thanks to an included package of camera-driven features that includes five key features - autonomous braking, adaptive cruise control, 'Lane departure warning', a 'Weaving alert function' and 'High-beam assist'.
