Suzuki has resorted to a retro approach for its newest city car. The hatchback sports large headlamps and small slits instead of a traditional radiator grille. In profile, the short urban runabout features small rear doors with triangular rear quarter glass panels. The rear features a plain hatch door and bumper mounted combination lamps.

The interior also has a classic appeal to it with simple elements and the dashboard itself is designed to offer maximum cabin room. The gear lever is mounted on the centre console and the dashboard sports a white insert. The instrument console has an analogue dial and a multi-information display.
