2018 Suzuki Vitara facelift spied

The Suzuki Vitara facelift has been spotted undergoing cold weather testing in Sweden. Although there's plenty of camouflage tape up front, we can see that this prototype has a mesh grille and a revised lower air intake treatment. There's also a new sensor pod lurking in the lower air dam, suggesting that the revised Vitara will feature an upgraded safety package, possibly including automatic emergency braking...

New Suzuki Swift aimed squarely at Mazda 2

Suzuki Australia says it expects the brand new Swift, due around June this year, to battle the Mazda 2 for sales supremacy in the private (non-fleet) part of the market. The new 2017 Swift, revealed right at the end of last year ahead of its European premiere this March in Geneva, will arrive in Australia by mid-year and bring with it a large suite of updates over the tired (but still cute) current iteration, which has ceased production but remains in stock here...

Instead, you can expect the next iteration to follow the smaller ‘regular' Suzuki Vitara’s lead and adopt a more road-focussed demeanour and construction, to better compete with rivals such as the Mazda CX-5 and Hyundai Tucson in the hugely popular medium SUV market...

New Suzuki Jimny Sierra to remain a hardcore ladder-frame 4x4

The confirmed successor to the much-loved Suzuki Jimny Sierra (current model pictured above) will retain the famed off-road ability and toughness, the company says. Expect familiar ladder frame construction, off-road suspension and reduction gearing (low range) to remain part of the next iteration, which will also sport more safety equipment, cool retro styling language and potentially a downsized BoosterJet turbo engine — though the latter is not confirmed...
