Short radiator hose?

Changed coolant hoses on my 06 Wee about 7 years ago so I thought it was about time again. After trying to install the left side hose for over an hour, I compared it to the hose I removed. Should have done that sooner. Anyway the new hose is about an inch shorter, no way it would fit. The part number on the wrapper is correct. Did Suzi use a different length hose on later gen Wees? Maybe mis-packed. Anybody else run into this?

When in doubt, gas it!!!
