This is the third time that the Swift has won the coveted award after the first and second-generation versions (of the global Swift) took the award home in 2005 and 2010 respectively.

In announcing the Swift as Car of the Year, the RJC said the model is as enjoyable as it is versatile.

“The Swift offers a good variety of models to a wide range of users, especially the newly launched in Japan Swift Sport with six-speed manual transmission which has excellent driving performance, manoeuvrability, and sporty characteristics.”
