The tested model of Suzuki Swift was introduced in Australia during 2011. This rating applies to all variants, including the Sport.
The left-hand-drive European model with a 1.2 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.
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.
A full list of safety features and technologies can be viewed within the Technical Report (see download link).
NOTE: In March 2017, ANCAP conducted a frontal offset crash test of a Suzuki Swift for audit test purposes. The audit test score was 15.36 which meets the minimum 5 star eligibility criteria for this test.
