That is true, but when you look at how many similarly classified vehicles Japanese manufacturers have in their lineups, including models shared between manufacturers (which is all of them except Honda), it's not really that hard to see them co-exist.

Also, if Jeep can sell the Renegade, Compass, and Cherokee, all with overall dimensions that aren't actually that far apart from each other, Suzuki can have both this and the Ignis.

I guess you are right, the Japanese market is quite unique in that sense.
As for the Jeeps, there is some differences that work for them. The Renegade is a subcompact and operates in a different segment, whereas the Compass is more of a city car and the Cherokee more off-road capable with an optional V6.

1 liter powered subcompact CUV apparently intended to slot above both the Hustler, which most of it's design is based on, and the upcoming next-gen Jimny, and below the Escudo.

While nearly all of the XBee is inspired by the smaller Hustler, the split 'floating roof' look of the rear is more like that of the latest Swift.

I really like it, but I do feel like it is a direct competitor to Suzuki's own Ignis.
