Used Car Safety Report

The Suzuki Swift has been awarded a 2 star Driver Protection rating in the latest Used Car Safety Rating (UCSR) report. UCSR are reported annually by the Monash University Accident Research Centre (MUARC). Ratings are estimated from data on real crashes reported to police in Australia and New Zealand and provide a very high level of confidence. The UCSR report classifies cars according to where their rating lies in relation to a best performance benchmark. The Driver Protection rating measures the relative safety of cars in preventing serious injury to their own drivers in crashes.

The Suzuki Swift also received a protection for other road users rating in the UCSR report. The protection for other road users rating indicates the level of protection that a vehicle provides for other unprotected road users (other car drivers, pedestrians, bicyclists or motorcyclists) in the event of a crash.

Data suplied by euroNCAP

The tested model of Suzuki Swift was introduced in Australia early in 2005. The Australian model has a 1.5 litre engine.

The Suzuki Swift scored 10.79 out of 16 in the offset crash test. Protection from serious chest and leg injury was marginal for the driver. Upper leg protection was marginal for the passenger.

The vehicle scored 15.73 out of 16 in the side impact crash test. There was a slight risk of serious chest injury for the driver. A further 2 points were scored in the optional pole test.

Important note: The left-hand-drive European model was tested by Euro NCAP. Australasian specifications may vary and therefore models sold in Australasia might provide different levels of protection to those described on this page.


Safety Feature Summary

The safety feature information below is subject to change without notice. For up to date safety feature specifications for all variants, please see the safety feature table to the right or contact the manufacturer.

Dual front airbags and ABS brakes are standard on all variants. Head-protecting side curtains, as tested by Euro NCAP, are standard on the Swift S variant but are not available on other variants in Australia. The European model has an advanced seat belt reminder for the driver seat and earned a bonus point - the Australian model does not have this feature.

The front seat belt buckles are mounted on the seats and the upper anchorages are adjustable. These features improve the fit of the seat belt. Pre-tensioners are fitted to the front seat belts to reduce slack in the event of a crash. A three point seat belt is fitted to the centre rear seat. This provides better protection than a two point seat belt.
