The contract hire Suzuki Swift also gets rear parking sensors and dual sensor brake support to make this a safe car for the driver and their occupants.
The dual sensor brake support works at speeds of between 3 mph to 62 mph and will monitor the road ahead to detect potential obstacles or the risk of collision.
The system will then make an audio and visual warning and will deploy the brakes if the driver then ‘panic brakes’ to help avoid the risk of a collision.
Under the bonnet, there's a new 1.2-litre petrol engine offering lower CO2 emissions and better fuel economy.
The fuel economy is enhanced with the self-charging hybrid system that utilises a lithium-ion battery for improved energy recovery efficiencies.

Drivers should see the Swift returning impressive fuel economy of delivering WLTP fuel economy of 57 mpg, with emissions of 111g/km.
The Swift’s audio system uses a 7-inch touchscreen, and some models have satnav fitted as standard.
For those who use Apple Carplay, they will be able to make and receive calls, safely access text messages and email, listen to music and receive directions for dealing with traffic conditions.
Green Cars’ is the term used for zero, low and ultra-low emission vehicles (ULEVs) - with pressure being applied to lower global emission levels, the need for “eco-friendly” vehicles is on the rise. Many countries now have plans in place to abolish the use of combustion engines before the turn of the century and so more and more vehicles we see on the roads will be Electric, hybrid or very low emission petrol and diesels.
Although beneficial to the environment, ‘Green Cars’ are also beneficial from a taxation view. The lower a vehicle’s emissions banding, the lower the taxation placed against it. Many manufacturers have tapped in to this ever-growing market with their own offerings, however, Volvo were the first manufacturer to state that every one of their models will be either electric or hybrid options from 2019.
