Suzuki also revealed its plans to produce and distribute the production model by the end of next year and it’ll be manufactured by the Chongqing Changan Suzuki joint venture in China. By selling the new SX4 crossover along with it, which will be made by the same venture, Suzuki will look to expand its market share in China.

The concept could influence the next generation SX4 sedan. With its length of 4.60 m and a wheelbase of 2.75 m, it’s more streamlined in shape and aerodynamically emphasized. The generous use of chrome elements underlines the sporty and elegant appearance of the concept.

Suzuki hasn’t shared the power train details yet but we believe it will have the same engines as the new SX4 crossover. The production version of the car has a very rich chance of entering India to replace the current SX4.

Furthermore, it is expected to be positioned up market than the current model which makes it always interesting and we are looking forward to see how it unfolds.

    this is a very impressive concept; the only good looking suzuki after the new swift and kizashi. but at 2.75 m , its wheelbase is longer than the kizashi’s! nontheless, its an extremely well designed and proportionate sedan.HATS OFF SUZUKI!!

    Quite impressed with this model, looks exotic. Size seems equivalent to Fiat Linea and so the expectation of improved ride and handling has also gone high.

    It’s authentic by design….Have you observed the panel gaps are so tight….will it be possible to bring into production that accurate? Hope this one makes (production) it to India to replace the ageing SX4 or in a new segment.
