Born from a collaboration between Suzuki and Toyota, the Swace could quite possibly be Suzuki's best kept secret. A hidden gem which is yet to be discovered & essentially a Toyota Corolla emblazoned with a Suzuki badge.
The partnership between Suzuki and Toyota could never really fail & leaves no doubt that the Swace will most definitely be a car you can rely on. The combination of these two well known Japanese manufacturers could only ever result in an extremely well-built, affordable and reliable Hybrid estate.
Hybrid Technology - 64 miles per gallon without the need to plug in
Starting from just £27,499 (correct as of July 2022), the Suzuki Swace offers fantastic value for money when compared to it's rivals, including the Toyota Corolla, & sits way ahead of it's competitors when it comes to efficiency delivery an outstanding 64.2mpg on the combined cycle (a range of over 700 miles on a single tank of fuel!). And we can with confidence stand up to this claim as several of our team have achieved 70mpg & over when driving it for themselves!
These mpg figures are all achieved without even needing to plug in as the Swace combines a powerful hybrid electric motor with a 1.8 litre petrol engine which packs some serious power with an output of 122bhp. And being a hybrid, it also means super low emissions at just 103 g/km.
The Swace is a 2 wheel drive estate, delivering it's power to the front wheels (front wheel drive) and using an automatic CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) gearbox which gives a smooth, seamless drive as it moves through the gears.
All The Tech You Need As Standard
As with all Suzuki cars, there's no hidden costs when it comes to extras - you get all the tech & spec you need as standard and the price you see is the price you pay. Included as standard with the Swace you'll get: -
- Rear Parking Camera
- 8-inch Multimedia Touch Screen
- Smartphone Connectivity for Apple CarPlay & Android Auto
- Heated Seats & Steering Wheel
- Dual Zone Climate Control
- Wireless Charging Pad (SZ5)
- Intelligent Parking Assist (SZ5)
Advanced Safety As Standard
Another standard with the Swace, and the Suzuki brand, is the level of safety you get.
Pre-Collision system - helps prevent collisions with other vehicles, pedestrians and bicyclists by monitoring the road ahead with a millimetre-wave radar and monocular camera.
Lane Tracing Assist - partially assists the steering operation to keep the vehicle in the centre of the lane and prevent departure from the lane or road. It includes lane departure alert, steering assist, vehicle sway warning and lane centring features.
Dynamic Radar Cruise Control - automatically maintains the distance of the vehicle ahead and stops the Swace when the preceding vehicle comes to a stop. When there is no vehicle traveling ahead, the vehicle travels at a fixed speed.
Road Sign Assist - monitors the road for traffic signs and displays them on the multi-information display when they are detected.
Blind Spot Monitor (SZ5 models) - detects vehicles located in or approaching the rear blind spots on either side of the vehicle and makes lane changing safer. When a vehicle is approaching or detected in a rear blind spot, a warning icon is illuminated in the relevant outer mirror.
Rear Cross Traffic Alert (SZ5 models) - helps the driver avoid collisions when reversing out of parking spaces. When the sensors detect vehicles approaching blind spots in the rear, a buzzer and blinking mirror icons warn the driver.

Here's a recent testimonial from a very happy Swace customer....
"This is just something else, so lovely to drive, very comfortable, very responsive and nearly silent. I did 230 miles in it yesterday with 5 adults in the car and it gave us 62 mpg! I can’t fault that and it's such a comfortable ride too".
