Based on the Suzuki Regina’s lightweight platform.

The Suzuki Crosshiker mini SUV concept was showcased at the 2014 Sao Paulo Motor Show. The Crosshiker concept was first shown at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show in November 2013, where the company said that the car is targeted towards adults “who have a playful mind.”

The Crosshiker had its world debut at the Tokyo Motor Show last year.

The Crosshiker is an alternative design approach for the Regina concept shown at the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show, according to Suzuki. In fact, Suzuki say that the Crosshiker uses the “next generation lightweight platform” which is adopted for the Regina.

The mini SUV concept weighs a mere 810 kg, which according to the company is the weight of a modern day city car (to put it in perspective, the top-end Maruti Swift petrol weighs 960 kg).

The Crosshiker is powered by a 1L engine.

Power for the Crosshiker comes from a newly developed 1.0-liter three-cylinder engine, whose power and torque outputs are a secret. The engine will offer “a good balance between environmental performance and driving performance.”

    When it comes to India, Suzuki/Maruti doesn’t have a single product
    that exciting to look at or they have any product in pipeline that is worth
    mentioning. They can do a lot things to their current product range that exiting
    and funky in terms of design without much cost. The problem is that they are
    run by the Japanese and unless they don’t get the marching orders from them
    they can’t do anything. More than 50% of their revenue is coming from India and
    still they will not manufacture the products in India for the export market. What
    did they do in terms of manufacturing their latest product for export to EU? Go
    to Thailand! This outfit is going to consider India as a cash cow and treat it
    like a third world country. If any of these concept models ever make it to
    India, It will be like eating Koliwada fish fry sushi mistakenly as Vada pav.
