Allegedly yes. It has been promised at the last Tokyo and Geneva motor shows but nothing official said yet.

It's not a Jimny. It's my Jimny

Do you think it will defo look like that Martin as according to two Suzi franchises I spoke with the thinking is that the same will happen as did with the Ignis (or was it Swift) and when it gets to showrooms it will be changed a fair bit.
I hope it keeps the Hummer look cos I am saving up to get one.

Do it right - use Hammerite
When the blue light is flashing I am kidding.

Last I heard was it would be made in India.

Even Renault had to move Dacia production from India :ohmy: (They were rusting faster than Lancias, despite instructions to actually paint them)

Puts me off, unless it is under £5000, in which case I will definitely buy one!

If it suddenly breaks, go back to the last thing that you did before it broke and start looking there :)

Well as the leaked pictures also show it on the production line then it is pretty much finalised

Maruti have been making Suzukis for years for a number of markets so they are pretty established

I watched loads of Maruti vids before I decided to get my Celerio.

I think the made in India issue is a lot like the made in China issue. They may not be the same as a Suzuki made in Japan but the quality will be driven by what Suzuki demands.

I started out with nothing & still have most of it left

More likely by the minimum cost for manufacture. :whistle:
