Report: Volkswagen CEO says Suzuki would be an ‘interesting partner’

According to a report by Manager Magazine, Volkswagen could be interested in partnering up with Suzuki Motor Corp. CEO Martin Winterkorn told the German Magazine that Suzuki would be an interesting partner because of the Japanese automakers competency in small cars.

Volkswagen was not available to comment on the report.
