Following further strong success of the Swift model in 2015 with a 21 per cent increase in sales year on year, Suzuki has now added further customer appeal with the launch of the Special Edition SZ-L model, available as either three or five door with manual transmission.
The SZ-L is based on the popular SZ3 which is well equipped as standard with seven airbags, ESP, air conditioning, USB port, Bluetooth and LED daytime running lights and adds a unique exterior design with Gloss Black 16” Alloy wheels, rear upper spoiler and SZ-L badging.
Further standard equipment features for SZ-L include satellite navigation, DAB Radio, cruise control, Sport type steering wheel with silver stitching plus further silver stitching to the seats and gear lever boot. SZ-L is available in seven colours including new Horizon Orange metallic which is available for the first time on Swift; metallic paint is a £430 option.
The Swift SZ-L offers value for money in terms of running costs and purchase price; the 1.2-litre Dual VVT 94PS engine is one of the most powerful in its class, but offers low emissions of just 116g/km CO2 costing £30 in annual VED after the first year and returns a frugal 56.5mpg on the official combined cycle. What Car? magazine recently achieved close to this figure in their ‘True MPG’ testing at 51.7mpg.
SZ-L is in insurance group 11E, the same low group as the rest of the Swift 1.2-litre range, making it the ideal purchase for younger Swift buyers who want to own a more striking, design led car at an affordable cost.
A range of flexible options from Suzuki Financial Services are on offer with a Nil deposit PCP (Personal Contract Purchase) available followed by 42 monthly payments of £165 for the three door SZ-L and just £10 more per month for the five door model.
Payments can be as low as £99 per month for the three door if a deposit of £2,772 is made. This is also over a 42 month period with a final payment required at the end of the term to keep the car.
