With its tight handling and compact dimensions, the Suzuki Swift is a model that’s popular among commuters and small families. It is also a go-to for newly qualified drivers, due to its relatively economical running costs. 

Now into its fourth generation, the Swift boasts its sleekest exterior yet and comes alongside an even sharper looking Sports edition.

Facts about the Suzuki Swift

  • The first generation of the Swift arrived in 2000. However, the name has been in use for longer than that, as the Japanese manufacturer began rebranding its Cultus model with the Swift badge from 1983 onwards.
  • Throughout its history, the Swift has been available in three-door hatchback, five-door hatchback and four-door sedan body types.
  • The latest Swift is built on the marque’s ‘Heartect’ platform, which is designed to boost passenger protection by delivering features such as enhanced collision safety and improved performance.

Insurance groups and tax bands for Suzuki Swift models

How much you’ll be charged for your car cover rests on several factors. One thing that some insurers take into account is the insurance group of the vehicle you’d like a policy for. Car insurance groups run from 1-50, whereby cars in higher-numbered groups are a riskier and costlier prospect for insurers, so premiums may be higher to reflect this. 

Another banding system to be aware of is the one used to determine how much Vehicle Excise Duty you owe. This is a tax charged annually based on models’ CO2 emissions, with the most polluting vehicles paying more. 

Insurance groups and tax bands for a few editions of the Suzuki Swift include:

Model Insurance Group Tax Band
Suzuki Swift SZ3 1.2 Dualjet 5d 22 F
Suzuki Swift SZ5 1.2 Dualjet SHVS 4x4 5d 23 F
Suzuki Swift 1.2 Dualjet Attitude 5d 25 F
Suzuki Swift SZ-T 1.0 Boosterjet 5d 25 F
Suzuki Swift SZ5 1.0 Boosterjet auto 5d 27 G
Suzuki Swift SZ5 1.0 Boosterjet SHVS 5d 27 E

At Ageas, we aim to offer insurance to as many drivers as possible. But we can’t promise we’ll have a policy to suit every customer and every vehicle, and that may include some variants of the Suzuki Swift.
 

We will determine if we can provide you with a quote based on a number of factors that include your car and your personal circumstances.
