The 2011 SX4 gets a new grill with more chrome and slightly altered front lights…

Whilst the rest of the world is getting the generation of Suzuki Swift, it seems that Chang’an Suzuki have decided there is plenty more milage left in the current China built Suzuki Swift and have thus given it a face lift for 2011.

The above Swift continues to have its handsome stance that has helped it become one of the…

Facelift Suzuki Swift to launch tomorrow

Suzuki have had a big hit on their hands from day one when they launched the Suzuki Swift into China, the low cost mini car that has a lot of funk about it has been a best seller seller for a long time, initially only coming in 1.3L form but later came in 1.5L form, which then followed on with a variation of special editions which kept the Chinese motoring…

Updated Suzuki Swift for China

CCT has a very large soft spot for the Suzuki Swift, it maybe getting on a bit in its current guise, but we’d still buy one if we had the spare cash, and perhaps somewhere to park it. The Chinese Swift went from being a mere 1.3l to a 1.5l offering, and now a further upgrade has been made.
