2011 Suzuki Swift Review

  One of Suzuki’s biggest achievements in recent years was the Swift. First introduced in the Philippines in 2004, the all-new Suzuki Swift retains the sporty subcompact character of its second-gen predecessor, but with added value of comfort fitted to Filipinos.

2011 Ford Fiesta Sport Review

Being practical doesn’t always imply a sense of weakness. Take the 2011 Ford Fiesta Sport for example as it offers value for money in a very reasonably package.
