The tested model of Suzuki Swift was introduced in Australia during 2011. The Australian variants have 1.4 and 1.6 litre engines that have similar dimensions to the tested engine. This rating applies to all variants, including the Sport.

The Swift scored 15.68 out of 16 in the offset crash test. The passenger compartment held its shape well. There was a slight risk of serious chest and leg injury for the driver.

The vehicle scored 15.8 out of 16 in the side impact crash test and a further two points in the optional pole test.

Important note: The left-hand-drive European model with a 1.2 litre engine 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, driver knee airbags, side airbags and head-protecting side curtains are standard equipment. Antilock brakes (ABS), electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD) and electronic stability control (ESC) are also standard. Intelligent seat belt reminders are fitted to both front seats.

Pretensioners 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 (lap) seat belt.
