Suzuki are no strangers when it comes to selling small, light, fuel efficient cars in Australia. The original Suzuki Swift was a popular model that was economical, reliable and fun to drive. Even the Alto name used on this latest model had a run as a three-cylinder five door hatch way back in the eighties and nineties.

Each year, Australia's top motoring club experts put the most popular cars
through their paces over hundreds of kilometres of rigorous road tests to
determine Australia's Best Cars.
The cars, ranging from small to luxury cars and 4WDs, are tested on some of
the country's harshest roads and measured on a range of criteria, including
handling, safety, security and value.
The Australia's Best Cars awards program stands out from other car awards
because the judging process incorporates as many measurable elements as
possible. Basically, if it can be measured, it is. This is why ABC is
considered the nation's most comprehensive and independent consumer
focussed vehicle testing and awards program.
All information on the best cars program is made available to the public in
a number of ways including the Australias Best Cars magazine, the motoring
clubs' advisory services and Australias Best Cars website.
So how are the cars scored?
Well, it's no easy task, given that the field now compromises more than 300
new cars. The judging panel is made up of 10 club representatives from
across the country who tests the cars using the strict ABC testing process.
There are three key areas which the judges consider:
value for money
design and function and
on the road.
Within each of these areas there are up to eight criteria. Each criterion
is given a score between 1 and 10 with 10 being the highest possible score.
The scores are then weighted - critical, high, medium or low - according to
their importance to the buyers in the relevant market segment.
In 2010, there were some important changes made to ABC, the first of which
was the introduction of three more categories. This was needed to reflect
the growing number of light and SUV vehicles in the market.
There 15 categories are as follows:
Best Light Car Under $20,000
Best Light Car Over $20,000
Best Small Car Under $35,000
Best Small Car Over $35,000
Best Medium Car Under $50,000
Best Medium Car Over $50,000
Best Large Car Under $60,000
Best Large Car Over $60,000
Best People Mover
Best Sports Car Under $80,000
Best Sports Car Over $80,000
Best SUV Under $40,000
Best SUV Over $40,000
Best Luxury SUV
Best All-Terrain Four-Wheel-Drive
Once the top three cars in each category have been decided the judges spend
five days at a special driver facility in Angelsea, Victoria testing the
three finalists against each other over a variety of road surfaces and a
number of different exercises on the skid pan and high speed loops.
Finally, the judges sit down at the end of each day and nut out the winner
of each car.
The 2010 NRMA representatives for ABC were Jaedene Hudson and Tim Pomroy.
2009 Suzuki GSX-R1000 - Jay Leno's Garage
2009 Suzuki GSX-R1000 . How fast could you go? Do the power-to-weight math:
155 at the rear wheel at 452 pounds...
Competition is fierce in the crowded realm of the literbike. So despite an
incredible record of consecutive AMA Superbike wins, Suzuki decided to go
back to the drawing board for a completely new soup-to-nuts redesign of the
GSX-R1000 for 2009. Suzuki Motorcycle's Garrett Kai jokes that the only
elements carried over from last year's model are the fuel tank cap and the
oil filter. The differences may seem subtle to the untrained eye, but to a
superbike aficionado, Suzuki has gone the distance to improve upon previous
The overall appearance of the Gixxer Thou is more aggressive and more
refined, and more compact than its forebear. Weight has been cut back six
pounds to a total net of 452 pounds. The redesigned 999cc inline
four-cylinder engine is over two inches shorter, which in turn shortens the
wheelbase for greater maneuverability, and allows for a longer swingarm,
yielding improved corner traction. Technology from racing's cutting edge
has informed most aspects of the bike's new design, including a new
cable-actuated clutch system, and big piston forks. Indeed, with 155 hp at
the rear wheel, you might want to have some racing experience before
attempting to tap this bike's potential. That's right, for a mere $12,899,
you too can enjoy grand prix performance in a two-wheeled street machine.
An avid Suzuki collector, Jay already has a 1975 RE5 and a 1966 X6 Hustler
among others in his collection, and was beyond thrilled when Suzuki
presented him with the first production GSX-R1000 as a thank you for his
support of the motorcycle industry. Jay will have to break his Gixxer in
easy for the first 500 miles, keeping it below 4000 rpm - where most cars
