Suzuki Swift 1.0 Boosterjet SHVS

Official average: 58.8mpg 

Real MPG: 58.7mpg

In our opinion the Suzuki Swift is an unsung hero among small hatchbacks. It's a car that many people overlook, but we think they're missing out. It's good to drive, well equipped and, being a Suzuki, will also be reliable too. It can add genuinely economical to that list with the Swift 1.0 Boosterjet returning pretty much its claimed mpg figure - a rare achievement in Real MPG. The SHVS is a mild hybrid system which gives a boost at certain speeds.
