A lucky Sun reader picked up the keys to a new Suzuki this week as first prize winner in a competition hosted by the national newspaper.

Jill Bastable, from Brighton, has become the proud owner of a Swift 1.5 GLX automatic, and collected her prize Swift from her local dealership, Maxmatt, this week. She said: “I’m surprised and absolutely thrilled to have won, it’s a great car.” By coincidence, Jill is an established Suzuki fan, having been a Grand Vitara owner for six years.

The newspaper competition was designed around Suzuki’s partnership with Walt Disney Studios for the blockbuster summer family movie hit WALL•E, a link-up that has also seen the mechanical movie hero join Suzuki’s “Time for a Swift Exit” billboard campaign and special WALL•E promotional weekends at dealerships across the country.

And there is still time to win more great WALL•E prizes with Suzuki, including a space themed family holiday to Florida with a trip to Kennedy Space Centre and the chance to see a shuttle launch. To enter, simply visit any Suzuki dealer to complete the entry form or go online at www.suzuki.co.uk/walle.

Swift brings to the compact car segment a blend of eye catching good looks, Japanese quality and European-inspired driving dynamics. Low cost of ownership is assured with prices starting at £8,260 for the 1.3 GL three door and 60 mpg-plus fuel economy and CO2 emissions of  just 119g/km for the 1.3 DDiS model.

The distinctive styling and spacious interior are complemented by a comprehensive specification. All models feature front, side and curtain airbags, radio/CD player, remote central locking and immobiliser, electric front windows, electric and heated door mirrors and leather steering wheel with audio controls. 1.5 GLX models gain air conditioning, alloy wheels, front fog lamps and keyless entry and start.
