Corolla or Suzuki Swace?

After warranty ends for Swace would there be any reason to stick to service with Suzuki and go with Toyota servicing instead?

Why would you go with Toyota servicing??

A Swace wouldn't be eligible for Toyota's Relax warranty scheme, nor Toyota's hybrid Battery extended warranty.

Furthermore, after the new car warranty ends, if one took out the Suzuki extended warranty, it would almost certainly have to be serviced within the Suzuki dealer network in order to maintain the extended warranty.

Can't find much info on Suzuki servicing the Swace. Do they even do hybrid Battery health check? At least with Toyota they will know the ins and outs of the Swace as they are the same car.

Presumably Suzuki dealers do whatever servicing is required by Suzuki. They already have models with mild hybrid technology, so will be used to some hybrid tech. The fact it is clone of the Corolla is neither here nor there.

We previously owned a Mazda 2 (the sister model to the then Fiesta and Fusion) which was built by Ford and the engines were Ford. Servicing and warranty was as determined by Mazda.

Another car we owned was a Honda Concerto - the sister car to the then Rover 200 and built by Rover, although with a Honda 1.5 engine. Warranty and servicing was as determined by Honda.

The same with the Aygo, Citroen C1 and Peugeot 108.

In some markets Suzuki also sells the Rav4 PHEV as Accros and recently they introduced Vitara HEV. They surely have trained technicians for the Battery health check.

The Suzuki UK website only seems to mention the 3 year/60,000 mile new car warranty, the corrosion warranty, and the extended warranty (which owners can purchase).

Suzuki Dealership near to me is flying flags proclaiming a new 10 Warranty--akin to Toyota !

This has been raised earlier and seemed to be a dealer offer. However, the Suzuki website only shows the 3 year/60,000 mile new car warranty and payable extended warranty:
