To be launched later this year as the replacement to the SX4 sedan, Concept Alivio is a further refinement toward production model. Suzuki has confirmed that the car would receive a 1,586 cc DOHC 16-valve four-cylinder petrol engine with a newly developed six-speed automatic transmission.

The car measures 4,545 mm long, 1,730 mm wide and 1,475 mm tall.
