Wow. Nice to know that Suzi is doing good.

But then the links clearly mention about the small-car segment being a major reason. And there lie the volumes which manufacturers concentrating on medium/bigger cars cannot even dream of. More so in our country.

The new Swift is the main reason for this to happen.

No Actually its some 600cc car that's making the waves.

Even Toyota has recently made some deals with Diahatsu for a diesel engine and a small car.

Thats surprising to hear, but its only because of small budget cars. So its quite obvious that Suzuki will sell more volumes.
