Default Suzuki Swift - Canada Model

With all the noise and celebration over the launch of the Swift in India, i thought it's a nice idea to show the Canadian Swift. So here it is:

How come no one saw through it? The swift is nothing a re-badged Aveo! Over here Chevy Aveo, Pontiac Wave & Suzuki Swift are all the same cars having different names

The Indian one is way better off.Lovely car and looks pretty attractive with all the funky colors they're providing one with.

Yeah, even I prefer the Indian one, this one is slightly on the dull side.

As Amit mentioned, its nothing else but the Chevy Aveo. This car and the Suzuki Swift have nothing in common except for the name tags.

The indian one is more exciting. this is a boring design.

anyways, so we're gonna have 2 same cars , different generations being sold in our country sold by different brands.

The car industry sure thinks we're stupid. but, chevy might get it right on their nose for that. who would wanna take a boring chevy "swift" rather than the Exciting New Suzuki Swift ??

Yes, its definitely the Aveo, just as the Optra is sold in the US as the Suzuki Forenza
