Re: Suzuki Swift Sport

Not my cup of tea I am afraid.

Not because it is fairly cheap but because IMO it is ugly.

Simple, and not without some Joi De Vivre.
Cool in a cheap and fun sort of way - nothing wrong with that.

I will concede that the interior isn't that cool though

Re: Suzuki Swift Sport

Its not cool. There's absolutely nothing wrong with it, but that fact alone doesn't make something cool in my mind.

Good car, but uncool.

Re: Suzuki Swift Sport

This could be cool if it were attractively styled, audible, generally a little more badass. But instead it's a popular economy car driven by women. Seems to have been quite a hit for Suzuki though.

Re: Suzuki Swift Sport

Not a bad little car but its still a Suzuki and that means (for me anyway) that its rubbish. I know its fairly quick and fun to drive but i cant get past that badge. Suzuki's should have 2 wheels. I cant help being shallow.

It's a nice little thing and I believe they are fun to drive but that doesn't make them cool IMHO.

Still, each to her own ......

Re: Suzuki Swift Sport

Apparently they handle very well and in my opinion - far less up its own @rse than a Mini which to many people is a cool car.

So cool for me....

Mini Clubman, don't even get me started.

Re: Suzuki Swift Sport

I'd prefer a Honda Jazz (Fit, here in Japan) to be honest. Rather uncool.

Re: Suzuki Swift Sport

Yeah, not bad. It's small, nippy and it's made by a firm that also makes motorbikes.. Cool!
