    Nah, if Suzuki had wanted to save NA they would have made an sx4 hatch with awd, the sportback suspension, wheels, tires, and body kit, then put a Kizashi spec 2.4 in it and marketed it as a cheap alternative to the wrx, golf-r, and mini countryman cooper s all4. JMHO

    Just imagine it, 185 hp /170 lb-ft in a 2900 lb hatchback pushing power to all 4 corners through an intelligent awd system to 17" wheels wrapped in performance tires and riding on a sport tuned suspension. I don't care who the manufacturer is, I'm interested. Suzuki had all the nuts and bolts to make it happen, it's their management that screwed us and yes I am jaded as f#&k over it still.

    maybe you should write to them, seems like good marketing if you can put out something able to whip up on a WRX these days.

    That boat sailed when they pulled out of North America.
