Small car from Suzuki though, at the time of its launch, it was the largest passenger car the Japanese firm had made. The Cultus, usually known by its export name Swift, was the result of a Suzuki–GM alliance, and was widely exported under Chevrolet, Pontiac and Holden marques as well as its own. It also had a particularly long life, the original made to 2004 in Colombia, and the second-generation model is still being made, at the time of writing, in Pakistan. The second-generation Cultus was more contemporary in looks, with the blacked-out D-pillar, and took Suzuki slightly further upmarket, especially with a booted three-box model (also badged as a Maruti, in addition to various GM nameplates). The third Cultus, the Crescent, went into the territory occupied typically by cars such as the Toyota Corolla, with similar dullness, and was, at its launch, the largest Suzuki passenger car, but it was never sold under any GM marques. The name was adopted in Pakistan for its version of the Celerio in the mid-2010s.
