The Suzuki Swift is a supermini car manufactured by the Japanese Suzuki Motor Corporation. It was originally named SA-310 at its debut in 1985, but in 1986 it was renamed the Swift. It featured a modest 993 cc straight-3 engine producing 50 hp (37 kW), capable of going 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 17.9 seconds with a top speed of 141 km/h (88 mph). The G10 engine was very light, weighing only 63 kg (139 lb), and was not very powerful compared to other cars on the market. The suspension was lifted from the Suzuki Alto.
In Japan the car was sold as Suzuki Cultus, and from 1985 to 1988 in the United States and 1991 in Canada, the car was sold by General Motors as the Chevrolet Sprint and the Geo Metro captive imports. The car was sold from 1985 to 2000 as the Pontiac Firefly in Canada. In 1998, when General Motors discontinued the Geo line of economy cars, the Metro was rebadged as a Chevrolet. The Geo Metro was GM's most fuel efficient car of the 1990s. Its sedan version was the third model launched by Maruti Suzuki of India and was sold as the Maruti 1000 and the Suzuki Forsa in Canada.
