Here’s a bizarre one from our friend Theophilus Chin. The Photoshop master took a break from his computer and went fishing at the Sri Permaisuri lake. That’s when he saw this pick-up truck style Suzuki “Swift Outback” being driven round the lake. Only the one shot as proof.

We can’t say that we know a lot about a Swift pick-up ala Proton Arena that’s coming soon, but perhaps the car was sent here for humidity and extreme weather tests – notice how it has been very hot lately with heavy evening showers?

Unique bits not found on the Swift hatchback include SUV style black body cladding around the car, skid plates and a “4X4” emblem on the sides. Jimny hardware in a Swift?

Do you think there’s a market in Malaysia for a small car based pick-up? The Proton Arena was quite popular with small traders and businesses back in the day.

The third-gen Suzuki Swift was launched in Malaysia in January, but since then, we’ve seen spyshots of the Suzuki Swift Sport being tested by JPJ and ads for the locally-assembled regular Swift (launch batch was CBU).
