Suzuki Swift S-Concept – Click above for high-res image

With the Geneva Motor Show coming up in a matter of weeks, a whole mess of new debuts and concept cars are rolling in. The latest comes courtesy of Suzuki and its European operations.

Called the Swift S-Concept, the show car looks like it could be a pretty mean interpretation of the latest Swift hatchback in a higher-performance guise with a healthy dose of rally-inspired action. The Japanese automaker has released very little in the way of details, essentially announcing the debut accompanied by the preview rendering you see above.

We'll have to wait as the expo approaches for more, but for now you can check out the press release after the jump and click on the image above to view in high-resolution.

Suzuki to show SWIFT S-CONCEPT at 2011 Geneva International Motor Show

Suzuki Motor Corporation will be exhibiting a new concept car named the SWIFT S-CONCEPT at the 81st Geneva International Motor Show*.

The SWIFT S-CONCEPT is based on the new Swift, which Suzuki began marketing in Europe in autumn 2010. In line with Suzuki's brand philosophy of delivering excitement, its overall development concept was to create a stylish sport compact with premium performance. A "more sporty and exciting" design theme is reflected by a stylish look.

Suzuki also plans to exhibit the Swift, Splash, Alto, Kizashi, Jimny, Grand Vitara, and SX4.

Detailed information about the SWIFT S-CONCEPT and Suzuki activities can be obtained at the Suzuki Press Conference, scheduled on 1 March 2011, at 1:45 p.m., on stand 42.51, Hall 4.

      Swift is a pretty decent car.
      I like the best out of all the Suzuki's international models
      I no longer like the Suzuki's brand, but I like this as a car.
      Suzuki should head to small,rally-like cars in the future if they want to survive in this tough global market.

      I have an Aerio sx awd... it's a piece of crap...reliable...but rough and cheap and terrible gas mileage. I would love to see what they come up with. The kizashi would be a hit out of the park if they gave it some guts and a manual with the awd.

      Suzuki are very under rated in America, they should bring the Swift here, its a great car.

      I hope Suzuki doesn't screw this up. But I know they will. They will find some way to make the exterior or the interior goofy as F@$# for the USDM version. This from a company that manufactured hits like the Swift and Cappuccino.
