Search Driven for vehicles for sale
Taking on an opponent with a home town advantage is never easy, especially when that opponent has been purposely built with the track that you're racing on in mind.
While this may seem like an impossibly specific situation, but it was the exact one that Sam Wallace found himself in when it came time to test Suzuki's nifty little Swift RS.
Powered by a 1.0-litre three-cylinder "BOOSTERJET" engine, the Suzuki's turbocharged Swift pumps out 82kW and 160Nm of torque with mindful fuel efficiency. These might not sound like ground-breaking numbers, but it's definitely nimble, light-weight and tons of fun to drive.
At just $25,990, this Swift hatch comes with an array of safety features including automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and lane departure alert, achieving a 5-star ANCAP safety rating to boot.
So, does this little BOOSTERJET-equipped hatch have what it takes to hand it to the go kart on its own turf? Check out the full review above to find out.
