Motor Trend drives the 2010 Suzuki Swift

Yes, I've been heavy on the Suzuki content lately, but there's Suzuki news to be shared.

Case in point: The folks over at Motor Trend have taken a spin in the 2011 2010 Suzuki Swift (I think it should be 2011, though). Off the bat, they comment on how it might not make it to the U.S. A brief e-mail exchange with American Suzuki proved that the company remains tight lipped regarding the Swift's arrival, or at least its continued absence.

Anyway, the magazine says the 1.2-liter engine is a bit low on grunt, but does well on economy. They also say it's more quiet and refined than the outgoing model; apparently a welcomed addition. They also allude to the idea that its reflexes are "terrier like" (their words, not mine). However, I guess that's a good thing. Check out the full article for the entire scoop.

This is the car I want. I would love to see it here with the high revving 1.6L or at least the decent powered M15A. I so hope they bring it here to the US, I will take mine in Yellow, 5 doors, and AWD if they include it on this model like they did the last.
