Suzuki, undaunted by GM's selloff of its ownership stake in the company, is continuing in its plan for world domination with a couple of introductions at the New York auto show next month. We hear you snickering, and Suzuki does too, but it doesn't care. The company is planning to debut its new XL7 SUV as well as its new SX4, er, small four wheeler (sorry, "compact sport X-over") at the show. The SX4 is just the latest in a genre of small four-wheelers created by Subaru in the mid-'70s, but abandoned of late. Welcome it back — there's more to come.
