Since the “media” debut in February of the DS7 Crossback I hadn’t seen another. That’s not a surprise. While it is visually hard to miss it carries a premium price.

The Suzuki Swift has not normally been swift and has had several identities. The first Swift in the 1980s was wedgy, a hand-me-down project started in America by General Motors and marketed under various names: viz, the Pontiac Firefly, the Chevrolet Sprint, Geo Metro and the Holden Barina. In Japan it was known as the Cultus. Subaru’s Justy and others shared the heritage.
