Not bad - if I had to guess I'd say it is a redesign of the Suzuki Swift (name stolen by Daewoo in other markets as the Swift Plus).

The headlight styling is too Frumpy - a little too Daewoo Lanos or something...

It must be a Lanos.
I thought the Kalos (Aveo) replaced the Lanos. Scary if they are recycling the old Lanos....

They should sell the tuner concept. Or atleast sell a kit at the dealership. The Buick wannaby rims have got to go. They work on a Park Ave, not on an econobax. Suzuki motorcycles rock, they need to put some of that spirit into their cars.

It's actually a version of the Daewoo Lacetti, sold in Korea as the Lacetti 5-Door. Here in the states, we have the Lacetti sedan sold as the Suzuki Forenza. It a new car that directly replaces the Daewoo Nubira in markets like Europe. In Canada and other markets (like India) it's sold as the Chevy Optra. This is just the 5-door version of that car, but with different front and rear ends (look at the doors, they're the same as the Lacetti 4-Door/Forenza). All Suzuki is doing is taking advantage of it's 5-door set up and adding a new nameplate to it's stable of cars. An identical version of the 4-Door is also sold in China as the Buick Excelle (pics below) and they are also planning on adding the 5-Door in the near future.

Forenza (Lacetti 4-Door)-
