  • New 2024 Suzuki Swift concept - A familiar face with a new look and some mild hybrid motivation

    A concept in all but name, the Suzuki Swift concept is pretty much ready for showrooms as it previews the new fourth generation of the little hot hatch that’s set for a launch in 2024. The concept nomenclature aside, the car looks like a production model and has a inline-3 cylinder engine with a mild hybrid system.

  • Suzuki's return to Malaysia: what other models could be launched here?

    It has been a very Suzuki-focused week recently. News of the Japanese marque returning to Malaysia was confirmed in early-April, followed by the launch of the 2021 Suzuki Swift Sport here. But the Swift Sport and the soon-to-be-launched Jimny are not mainstream models. Far from it, really, as the two are there to build the Suzuki brand image in Malaysia, less so about capturing massive sales.
