The Suzuki Swift is an often overlooked yet very talented supermini. Thanks to fun handling and willing engines, it makes for a tempting alternative to buyers considering either the Mazda 2 or Ford Fiesta.
If you’re taken with the this little supermini, put the Suzuki Swift in our car configurator to see how much carwow could help you save. The Suzuki Swift is available in one of seven colours. To understand the difference between solid, metallic and special paints, read our car paint types guide.
Solid paint finishes
Superior White – £0
This standard gloss white is offered on the Swift as a no-cost option. On the used car market, it often pays dividends to stretch for a metallic shade if you can though, because the Swift is so cheap to buy anyway, it won’t make a drastic difference. Lots of cleaning will be needed to keep it looking good.
Bright Red – £0
On a small, fun supermini like the Swift, a bright red is likely to be quite desirable when it comes to trade-in time. If all that matters is the cost, it’s worth picking over Superior White because it won’t show up the muck quite as clearly!
Metallic paint finishes
Silky Silver Metallic – £430
Every one of the five metallic options for the Swift cost the same £430. Silky Silver will no doubt be a popular colour, and will hold its value well when the time comes to sell it on. You’ll need to spend a little time keeping it clean, however.
Cool White Pearl – £430 (Sport £0)
The second white finish in the Swift range, it’ll be worth trying to see both for yourself before trying to figure out whether the extra £430 is worth it. Cool White, like the remaining three hues, is also available for free on the Swift Sport. Again, prepare to spend plenty of time scrubbing it.
Cosmic Black Pearl – £430 (Sport £0)
A standard metallic black. It’ll be attractive to most buyers on the second-hand market, so values will likely remain stable relative to the other options. It won’t hide the dirt quite as well as Silky Silver, but definitely better in that regard than Cool White.
Boost Blue Pearl – £430 (Sport £0)
Like Bright Red, a bright colour like Boost Blue will hold its value well when you sell it to the used market. It’ll hide dirt for a little longer than whites and silvers but the odd car wash will help to keep it looking bold.
Galactic Grey Metallic – £430 (Sport £0)
A less common option for a supermini, Galactic Grey will nevertheless be the least low-maintenance option when it comes to cleaning! Used buyers love this colour on more premium cars so shouldn’t be put off by a gunmetal Swift.
