After my trip to Italy, I found myself with a new appreciation for ‘small’ hatchbacks one can throw around into parking spots—-one of my favourite hatchbacks i saw in Italy was the Suzuki Swift Sport. Firstly, their interiors are very cool and little hot hatch-ish goodness—i like their boxy, functional lines, and they have a very planted look to them in person. I didn’t see many of these during my trip—-but the 2 or 3 of them I did see convinced me I liked them. Rumour has it that Suzuki will introduce this car to the US market this year—–hey Suzuki—-DO IT! pioneer the ‘new’ hot hatch movement in the states!
I just went to the UK Suzuki site, and found that this 125 HP, 2400 pounds….for 12,995 GBP. If they brought this car over here for $15k, it would be absolutely stellar……hey Suzuki…..DO IT!
btw, here’s the latest Suzuki Swift S-Concept presented in March at the Geneva Auto Show….a little ‘overdone’ in styling, but upgraded performance likely makes the upgrades worth it. Digging the functional and tidy interior as well.
