Suzuki Swift coming back to USA in 2010
Suzuki has announced thet they will bring back the Swift model in 2010.
The Swift is a high-performance hatchback sold in Europe and Japan. The next-generation model would be sold in the United States.
"The Swift is known as a pocket rocket internationally, and that is the type of product we want here," said Gene Brown, marketing director of American Suzuki Motor Corp. The car is about the size of the Mini.
Other new products coming to Suzuki by 2011 are the 2008 SX4 sedan, which goes on sale this fall; a Nissan-based pickup that arrives next year; and two unnamed vehicles. Brown said Suzuki will drop the Aerio wagon in 2008.
The pickup will be based on the Nissan Frontier. Brown didn’t give product details but praised the possibility of a crew cab. "We think the crew cab is an important market," he said at the New York auto show.
