Suzuki Swift SZ-L: Sporty Looks, Low Insurance

If you're in the market for a supermini and haven't tried the Suzuki Swift, you're doing yourself a disservice.

It may lack the badge recognition of the Ford Fiesta or the kerb kudos of a Volkswagen Polo, but it's actually one of the best cars in its class - just check out its buzzScore of 8.1 for proof.

Suzuki is aiming its latest special edition, the SZ-L, at younger buyers. It's inexpensive to buy, inexpensive to run, and even more importantly, inexpensive to insure.

With a 94 horsepower 1.2-litre petrol engine under the bonnet and based on the SZ3, the SZ-L offers a host of sporty touches: A spoiler, darkened glass, 16-inch alloys, and metallic paint. Standard kit includes seven airbags, stability control, air-con, a USB port and Bluetooth connectivity.

The 1.2 may only get you to 60mph in 12.3 seconds, but it's the running costs that'll appeal more here - the SZ-L sits in group C for VED, at 30 a year. It'll also get 56.5 mpg combined.

The 3-door car starts at 10,599, with the 5-door retailing for 11,016.
