SUZUKI SWIFT
Since it first arrived on our shores in 2004, the Swift has delighted drivers with its compact footprint, eager handling and playful nature. The new one here is no different from its predecessor, thanks to the new turbocharged 1.0-litre engine that produces 109bhp and 160Nm of torque.

These performance figures may be inferior to its competitors, but because the Swift is notably lighter, it actually feels no slower to drive. A sharp front end and well-balanced ride also make for agile handling, and is sure to put a smile on the face of its driver.

At more than $15,000 cheaper than the other two rivals in its class, the Suzuki Swift is hard to ignore in this price sensitive segment. But, of course, this is not the only reason why it is the winner for the compact hatchback category in this year's COTY.

Launched in 2018, the Swift has managed to fend off newer rivals by still looking fresh and youthful. With a wheelbase that is longer and wider than its predecessor, the car is also usefully larger inside and is as spacious as its competitors.

Inside, one wouldn't expect a $70k plus car to be loaded with lots of goodies, but you will be surprised to find that it is fitted with automatic air-conditioning and paddle shifters. It also comes with other features usually found in bigger cars, such as Keyless entry, Automatic LED Headlamps and Electronic Stability Program.

The 'Swift' nameplate also evokes notions of sharp handling, keen driving and all-around fun. Like its predecessor, this new model contonually manages to delight drivers with its eager handling and playful nature. If you happen to go into a corner too fast, a quick lift off the throttle can prevent the car from snapping into wild oversteer, making for great fun for those who enjoy driving briskly.

Cementing its reputation as a driver's tool is its willing turbocharged 1.0-litre engine that produces a decent 109bhp and 160Nm of torque, propelling the lightweight supermini to decent speeds better than some of its rivals. A useful side effect of weighing less than a ton also means that fuel consumption is low, with a claimed figure of 17.5km/L.

With so many things done right, it is hard to deny the Suzuki Swift the win. Oh, and did we mention it is quite a bit more affordable than its rivals?
