The Suzuki Swace SZ5, a real estate car

In Car Reviews, Suzuki by Neil Lyndon

A stylish Suzuki? Isn’t that a contradiction in terms? Looking at it outside our house, however, I was filled with admiration for the looks of the new Suzuki Swace. Ever since I first set eyes on a Pontiac Bonneville estate car in the pages of Automobile Year 1958, I have always been a sucker for the classic form of the …

Reviewed | The Suzuki Across Hybrid SUV

In Car Reviews, Suzuki by Tom Scanlan

The Suzuki Across, a rapid and spacious plug-in hybrid SUV costing twice as much as the marque’s next-most-expensive model. Nothing wrong with that, given Toyota’s high reputation, and ‘badge engineering’ has, from time to time, long been standard industry business.  Grandads, for example, may remember those little 1960s Mini, Austin, Riley, and Wolseley. Or Rolls-Royce and Bentley in the 70s. …

The Suzuki Swift Sport Hybrid Review

In Car Reviews, Hybrid, Suzuki by Kieran Bicknell

I made no secret of the fact that the Suzuki Swift was my favourite small hatchback of 2020 You see, the Swift Sport is not about speed. Sure, it has a decent amount of “pep” to it and loves a good B-Road blast, but straight-line speed was never its true calling, and the handling was the best part, being wonderfully …

In Car Reviews, Green Motoring, Hybrid, Suzuki by Neil Lyndon

Somebody ought to write a PhD thesis about Suzuki as a case study for a Business Management course. They seem to spend no money on marketing. Can you remember ever seeing a Suzuki ad on tv or on a billboard? I can’t call a single one to mind from the last 50 years. They don’t waste money showing off at …

Suzuki Vitara Hybrid – Everyday sunshine

In Car Reviews, Hybrid, Suzuki by Kieran Bicknell

Colour theory – the study of colour and its impact on a person’s emotions.. When asked about this, there is a range of standard responses “it’s good for resale value” or “it’s the cheapest” or a plethora of reasoning that these are the cheapest cars to get on bulk lease for company cars. But, I have a theory. If more …

The Suzuki Ignis Hybrid, a very clever package

In Car Reviews, Suzuki by Neil Lyndon

“You planning to take this load away in that?” said the oik at the builder’s yard. He was looking contemptuously at the Suzuki Ignis Hybrid. The back end of the little car sank progressively on its springs until its wheel arches were clear of the tyres by only a few inches but it accommodated the full load with room to …

Suzuki S-Cross Hybrid, a sound and sensible choice

In Car Reviews, Hybrid, Suzuki by Neil Lyndon

How long does it take to make up your mind about a car? What is it that communicates and fixes such an instantaneous impression of feeling right at home in a car? Touch? Feel? Ambience? Texture? The way your bum fits into the seat? The sound the door makes when it closes? A sense of security in something soundly made? …

Suzuki S-Cross Hybrid, take a good look.

In Car Reviews, Suzuki by Tom Scanlan

So they’re not all the same (as I had begun to think)! SUVs have for some years now been the type of vehicle that grabs the biggest chunk of the car market. Looking around inside, it happens to be a bit simpler than the other manufacturer’s two models recently tested. But then it’s a lot cheaper — at £27,549 around …

The Suzuki Swift Sport, sublime and simple

In Car Reviews, Suzuki by Kieran Bicknell

It’s hard to translate into words the sheer childlike enjoyment that I’ve experienced during my time with the Suzuki Swift Sport. I’ll admit, I had been rather excited for the delivery day since it was confirmed as I’d heard so many good things about both generations of the Swift; And boy, oh boy, did it deliver on my expectations. It’s …
