Interior design and technology – Suzuki Vitara

16 February 2018

Since 1988, Suzuki has launched four generations of its Vitara. Fast-forward three decades and the carmaker’s latest incarnation competes head on with the Nissan Juke, Honda HR-V and Kia Soul in the hugely popular crossover SUV segment. Continuing QUBE/just-auto's review of interior design and technology trends, we take a closer look inside this compact SUV.


Interior design and technology - Suzuki Baleno

9 October 2017

Alongside 4x4s, Suzuki is renowned for producing small cars that pack a lot of punch and ooze appeal. The Baleno is a fine example, marking one of the lightest, practical and most roomy B segment hatchbacks around. Continuing just-auto/QUBE’s review of interior design and technology trends, we take a look inside this hidden gem.


Why the Swift is vital for Suzuki's global future

26 September 2017

It's a small car which few outside India think too much about, or can even picture. The Swift might seem like a model which matters little, yet that thinking is mistaken: it and its sedan counterpart are key to Suzuki's increased domination of what could become the world's largest passenger vehicle market in the 2020s.


ANALYSIS - Suzuki platforms and future models

15 September 2017

Often flying under the radar due to its small presence in Europe and China, as well as its withdrawal from the US market, Suzuki Motor Corporation is something of a stealthy giant. Its dominance of the rapidly expanding Indian market, the strength of its mini-vehicle sales in Japan and a strategy of remaining fiercely independent after a bust-up with Volkswagen mark out SMC as one of the world's most unusual and successful OEMs.
