Having already cut advertising and marketing spending extensively, Suzuki says that they're unwilling to elevate charges or reduce content material to counteract the change charge trouble. The small hatchback may be sold in Europe and Japan until US marketplace info are finalized.

On a developmental word: VW is trying to have very last details on platform/powertrain similarities by way of this fall, such as what can be progressed and (probably) what may be shared.
