Suzuki recently expanded its model offering in South Africa with the launch of the Suzuki Splash hatchback, bringing its local model count up to eight, including hatchbacks, sedans, MPVs and SUVs. I spent some time with the Suzuki Splash 1.2 GL to see if it will be able to tread water in this competitive segment. The buttons and switchgear found on the centre console are reminiscent of a kiddies toy and I feel Suzuki could have done better here, especially when comparing this to the switchgear found on the entry-level Swift. The Suzuki Splash is powered by the proven four-cylinder 1.2-litre engine found in the entry-level Swift which offers 63 kW of power and 113 Nm of torque. Acceleration is far from blistering, but for a car this size, weighing 1090 kg, those power figures are more than enough to go about your daily commute with ease. If you don't fancy the Splash, then the Swift 1.2 GL offers excellent value with a more attractive interior and smoother transmission, all for a few extra pennies. Suzuki has a raft of small car offerings within about R30k of each other, the best of which by far is the Swift. Gero Lilleike is a published writer and photographer with most of his work appearing in the fields of travel and motoring.
Of all of them, the Suzuki Swift hatchback has proven to be a major success for the brand and Suzuki engineers have reworked a good formula and created yet another small city car, the Splash. The front-end is dominated by a large two-tier grille, which is flanked by oversize headlight clusters and fog lights are fitted as standard on this GL model.
I quite like the large windows, which increases visibility and the sense of space in the cabin.


Comfortable cloth seats offer sufficient support and bolstering, and the tilt-adjustable steering wheel features mounted audio controls for the entertainment system.
A five speed transmission is standard across the Splash range but a 4-speed automatic is also available for the GL model.
The dash-mounted gear lever is stubborn through the gear changes and requires some grappling to select the preferred gear. The engine performs well and returns decent fuel economy and the good ride and handling makes the Splash easy and enjoyable to drive on a daily basis. The Splash though is a solid little runabout and if your budget won't quite reach to the Swift then it's a viable option.
The automatic version will set you back R149 900 and the base model Splash manual is priced at R124 900.
Gero has worked in the motoring space for the last four years and enjoys driving and photographing the latest cars. The new Suzuki Splash shares the same underpinnings as the Swift and squeezes in rather tightly between the Alto and the entry-level Swift.
The rear-end features a roof spoiler for extra flair and the short overhangs with a near-vertical tailgate give the Splash a flat-back look.
Stylistically speaking, the Splash is a cute looking city car, but may not appeal to everyone. The driver is faced with a large speedometer which incorporates a digital trip computer display.


In-car storage includes a lidded compartment on the top of the dash, door binnacles with bottle holders, a glove compartment, exposed storage trays and seatback pockets.
Highway driving is a breeze in the Suzuki Splash and it feels particularly responsive when you need to push on or overtake.
The Splash comes well specced, particularly in GL trim, and for the money, you're getting a decent product. In the GL model, a periscope-style rev-counter is mounted separately on the dashboard which, is meant to look ‘sporty’ but just looks odd instead.
The Suzuki Splash is therefore an excellent urban runabout that’s up to the task of niftily navigating busy city roads and highways. If you can look past the cheap switchgear and stubborn transmission, then the Splash is a winner. Time and sales will determine this, but is the Splash good enough to take the fight to its competitors?
