I find it interesting that the write up says the Swift was launched in 2004 - there's a 93 Swift sitting in my driveway and to the best of my knowledge, the first Swifts hit the market sometime in the '80's
'98 SQ420 Grand Vitara
'05 JB420 Grand Vitara

Good point. I'm not sure why they would want to shorten the history.

Well I guess that before 2004 it wasn't ' a world strategic model'.
