Suzuki may not be the biggest Japanese automaker, but it may be one of the more agile. The same could be said about the relatively new SX4; not Suzuki's largest offering, but certainly one of its most agile.
Suzuki might be known better for its motorcycles and marine engines in the United States, after all, the company did start selling two-wheelers here in 1963. It wasn't until 1985 that Suzuki first started selling four-wheeled cars in America.
Unlike the Japanese big three, Suzuki has primarily focused on fuel-efficient vehicles during its time in the states, with no minivans or full-sized pickups in the lineup.
