According to Car and Driver's recent talk with Suzuki's top engineer, Takashi Nakayama, the next Suzuki Swift is being engineered to meet U.S. crash standards. With that being said, Suzuki is still staying tight lipped regarding whether or not the globally acclaimed Swift will come to the U.S. or not. The people I've talked to at Suzuki have also not been able to say much about whether the Swift will show or not.
Let's hope Suzuki can gain some momentum with the Kizashi and the updated SX4. Then, I hope they've got one in the chamber with the Swift.
