2011 Suzuki Swift 3-Door 1

The fifth generation Suzuki Swift has been a great success so far, hence why the automaker intends to re-introduce the commuter as a three-door hatchback for the US market. The prototype of the 2011 Swift model was caught winter testing but the heavy camouflage ensured that nothing conclusive was revealed. Word is that the new four wheeler will bring a Kizashi-inspired grille, distinctive taillights and swept back headlights. Power to the wheels should come from both petrol and diesel options engines. The petrol variants will include a tiny 1.2L and a 1.6L engine producing 125hp at 148Nm of torque. Speculations are ripe about a hybrid model based on the 2009 Swift plug-in hybrid concept but this bit of info still needs a confirmation. [via WCF]

The CLS Shooting Brake is the derivative of the Mercedes Concept FASCINATION which first broke cover at the Paris event in two years ago.

Opel Insignia Hatchback

Regular readers will probably remember when we told you that Opel Insignia is getting official or the Opel insignia pictures. We even got a few messages that you really like it, so when I first saw the Hatchback version I knew this is definitely a must, to show you.Because I can’t see any sign of camouflage, it could mean that this model will hit the market at the same time with the sedan. Rumors say that an estate variant version is in the works and GM will release it next year.

There aren’t any big design changes except that the Opel Insignia Hatchback has an bigger rear window. Just like the sedan it will be equipped with seven engines to choose from, front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive systems.
