    Like I said earlier, the Swift may reach the shores of the USA before the end of 2011.

    the suzuki facebook page posed the question of what trim people would want on their swift... i'd say that's a big clue.

    The articles are from April and August 2010, but Suzuki has been kicking up the Swift noise for a while now.
    I am the Angel of Death for Automotive companies in the US, I have owned a Saturn and a Suzuki.

    It is
    legitimate to compare my Suzuki SX4 to a Ferrari; Italian Designed, Superb engineering, and she burnt to the ground in a blaze of oil and carbon fiber glory.

    This has been well posted in this section the last couple of months, as well as the poll about the Swift on March 4th.

    I particularly like this portion of C/D's text:

    If this next-gen car is anywhere near as fun to drive as the current SX4, which uses a stretched version of the current Swift platform, we’d welcome it with open arms.

    Although as Smurph pointed out, those are old articles. But I, too, noticed Suzuki using the Swift S Concept as its Facebook icon, along with the Swift postings. I hope it happens. It needs to happen. We've had five months of increased sales, which is good; hopefully they'll release it soon as gas prices start to creep up.

    I was looking something else up and found this - the Government has rated a Swift for 2011 for gas mileage.

    http://www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/bymake/Suzuki2011.shtml

    Way down at the bottom of that page.

    They must plan on bringing at least one version of manual and auto sometime soon or would not have the government rate them. That is needed for the sticker.
