As a supermini, the Suzuki Swift finds itself competing with the likes of the VW Polo and Ford KA. Small, affordable city cars like these are some of the most popular on British roads, and competition is fierce for a share of the market.
Newer models of the Swift tend to focus on a balance between style, economy and practicality. If you’re between 26 and 45 you could get insurance for £777*.

If cutting costs and emissions are priorities, you can’t go far wrong with the Suzuki Alto. With its great looks, small and economical engines and smooth handling, it’s tough to pick holes in this compact all-rounder.
Engines in the Alto range start at 1.0 litre and go up to 1.1, meaning that although there’s not a lot of choice, there’s consistency. The Alto is designed to be cheap to buy, run and insure, so a huge range of engines isn’t practical or necessary.
The average cost of insurance for 21 – 40 year olds is around £878* based on previous quotes.
