    Wald International builds the Suzuki Jimny-based mini G-Class of your dreams

    Japan's Wald International has ditched the Suzuki Jimny's standard cute-ute look and instead given the off-roader a more sinister demeanor.

  • The new 2018 Suzuki Swift Sport

    Suzuki bowed out of the U.S. market in late 2012. Its final products were actually well-built machines in the Kizashi mid-size sedan and SX4 compact hatchback. The problem was that no one was buying them, you couldn't find a dealership even if you wanted to buy one, and brand awareness on the auto side had evaporated. Still, Suzuki presses on and actually does quite well outside of America. In fact, it just showed off its all-new Swift Sport at the Frankfurt motor show. An affordable yet entertaining car that borders on hot hatch territory, enthusiasts always wanted Suzuki to bring the Swift...

    #BuyMyVitara is the greatest used car ad ever

    European Court Allows Suzuki To Use GTI Name, Too

  • Chevrolet Sprint Turbo

    When The General decided to bolster his subcompact troops by adding a Chevrolet-badged Suzuki Cultus to the lineup, even the most devoted GM apologists had to admit that the three-cylinder Chevy was miserably underpowered. What the Sprint needed was that code word for "awesome" during the mid-1980s: TURBO! Instead of the 48 horsepower of the regular Sprint, you got 70 horsepower in the Sprint Turbo; not bad for a car that barely cracked the 1,500-pound weight barrier. Available for the 1985 through 1987 model years, the Chevy Sprint Turbo went pretty well for the time. Sadly, nearly every...
