All new Suzuki Swift

This is actually pretty cute.
Suzuki never sold the previous generations of the Swift in the US.
And now, they are not even here anymore. So there is zero chance we a re getting this.

Too bad. This could have been a really nice small, inexpensive car. Especially agains ugly ducking like the Nissan Versa or Mitsubishi Mirage.

A 1.2 Liter is standard. But a 1.0 Liter Turbo or a hybrid version are options.

Back when the Swift was the Cultus in Japan it was sold as the Swift by Suzuki in the US, and a whole lot of other names, including the Pontiac Firefly in Canada.

I remember the Suzuki Swift being sold in the US in the early to mid 90's along with it's Geo Metro clone. They were basic transportation and good commuter cars. Some were even 3 cylinder.

would have loved to see this on US roads, shame they left and couldn't separate themselves from the motorcycle division.
