The latest test car is hella fun:
Suzuki’s original Swift GTI – we’re looking here at something evolved from that mid-80s mini-hatch – was a terrific car. Correction; it was a terrific engine attached to a bunch of rubber, glass, and metal recovered from dumpsters. The Swift Sport, though, has handling and brakes to match its sweet-sounding motor; and it costs just $A24,000, which is outrageous.
Sub-Honda/Mazda refinement levels are sometimes evident, but who cares? Also, those low-profile Dunlops stick like Fatty Arbuckle’s reputation. Longer review to follow.
