I am not a huge fan of Suzuki but I am a fan of the Suzuki Swift. I really like the 2nd and 3rd generation Swift. The smooth compact body is very appealing. Besides the Swift I really can’t recall what other Suzuki’s are available on the market at this moment…I’m sure I will think of another model later.
The Swift gets great mileage at little over 60 mpg. It has a nice engine but some would complain that the interior needs a bit more improvement. But when you consider what you can get for the price it all balances out. If you are looking for a nice and affordable car to make some modifications to the Swift is a great choice. At the Japanese auto auctions a 2008 to 2009 Swifts sells between 50k yen to 100k yen.
