  1. Suzuki is very underappreciated in Europe. On other hand India, Pakistan and Japan know very well what Suzuki is capable of!

    1. Europeans (mostly the french and germans) are very chauvinistic but now they are finally start to buy non european vehicles because of the chip crisis.

      1. “Europeans (mostly the french and germans) are very chauvinistic”.

        Wow, I take a bow!
        No doubt you did proper & objective research prior to sharing your wisdom with us mortals, ain’t that right?

      2. The Japanese/South Koreans don’t buy many European cars because our manufactureurs don’t have factories there. But they have a lot of factories in Europe and their sales were still small until last year. Only now the europeans are starting to buy Kia/Hyundai/Toyota etc vehicles in decent numbers.
