This could be the new swift with a turbo booster jet engine.

Looks nice, but similar to a Ford with the fascia.
The Boosterjet engines are already in use in Suzuki vehicles. They are basically direct-injection turbo engines in 1.0 and 1.4 liter displacements.

Current Swift Sport with its 1.6-litre naturally aspirated engine produces 100kW. However, even if 103kW is carried over it will be the torque output that will help boost overall performance most. The current 1.6 generates 160Nm while the 1.4 turbo in the Vitara develops 220Nm.

Sigh. I wish Suzuki was still in North America.
The Vitara with the Boosterjet would be a good alternative to the Jeep Renegade.
The Swift with the Boosterjet would be a good alternative to the Ford Fiesta ST.
Both Suzukis would also likely be way more reliable than either of these two cars.

The new Swift debuted late last year in Japan and is already on sale there.

It's offered with direct-injection turbo engines as well as mild-hybrid forms.
Here's the link to the Suzuki Japan website for the Swift:

Here's a Japanese commercial introducing the new Swift.

Those wheels look like the ones on the 2017 Mitsubishi Lancer.

There sure is. Even the previous generation was offered in AWD.

Here's a video of someone in Japan checking out a new Swift RS Hybrid AWD. Yes, this little vehicle is a mild hybrid and has AWD.
(The video won't allow embedded playback so click the link to see it in YouTube.)

Why Suzuki, why, did you leave us!?

The new Swift Sport is out, and it looks damn good. It has the same size engine as my Cruze (1.4L Turbo), puts out the same power (about 138hp), but is literally a 1000 lbs lighter. This thing would be a hoot to drive.
