2017 Suzuki Swift vs Jaguar F-Type: Differences and similarities side by side

Posted: Oct 6, 2017

OK, no-one’s really going to cross-shop a Suzuki Swift and Jaguar F-Type, but there are some design similarities between the two, and it’s kinda fun to compare such a mismatched pair. SwiftF-TypeWhen the new 2017 Suzuki Swift was released, some wags, including myself started comparing the front-end design of the small hatch with the far more expensive and luxurious Jaguar F-Type. SwiftF-TypeI mean, just look at the headlights and the grille shape on both the Swift and F-Type, especially with the pre-facelift F-Type seen in this photo. OK, they're similar-ish. SwiftF-TypeSorry, no similarities out back. SwiftF-TypeApart from featuring wheels, tyres, doors, windows and metal, there are few similarities along the flanks. SwiftF-TypeWith the turbocharged Swift Sport, and its beefed bumpers and upside down grille, the differences between the Swift and F-Type grow yet further. Although the Sport is a little bit closer in terms of performance. SwiftF-TypeAs of October 2017, Suzuki doesn't offer a convertible version of the Swift. So there's another point to the F-Type. SwiftF-TypeThere's sign of quilted diamond leather on the Swift, and the dashboard design is definitely more utilitarian, but there are some common-ish features. The steering wheels both have a large circular boss, the instrument panel features large circular speedometer and tachometer units, and the air vents are circular in both cars. Oh, and both vehicles are available with a manual transmission. SwiftF-TypeWhere the Swift really wins out is space and accommodation. The Suzuki can seat five, the Jaguar just two. In the UK, the Swift starts at just £11,499, while the F-Type kicks off at £49,900, or four Swifts and change. You could launch an Uber empire with that money! 2017 Suzuki Swift ◄ PrevNext ►Credit: Suzuki View Gallery (18 Photos) 2017 Jaguar F-Type ◄ PrevNext ►Credit: Jaguar View Gallery (20...
