Tokyo Live – 2015 Suzuki Hustler J Style mini SUV
Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.
Powered by a 660 cc petrol engine, and is available in both 2WD and 4WD versions.
Suzuki has revealed a special edition of the famous Hustler at the 2015 Tokyo Auto Salon, called the Suzuki Hustler “J Style”.
Changes to the normal Hustler are only cosmetic in nature; the Hustler J-Style features a two-tone exterior paint with a choice of three colors: Pheonix Red Pearl, Cool Khaki Pearl Metallic, and Bluish Black Pearl. It also features a white roof, LED foglamps, white bumper applique, 15-inch white steel wheels, and J Style badging all over the car. To commemorate the Hustler’s achievement of winning the Japan’s RJC Car of the year, the car also comes with RJC badging at the rear.
Inside, the dashboard is color coordinated to enhance its urban appeal, features heated seats for front passenger and driver, steering mounted audio controls, and an optional reverse parking camera. Otherwise, it is powered by the same 660 cc VVT-equipped (Variable Valve Timing) petrol engine that makes 51 hp and 63 Nm of maximum torque. Power is sent through a CVT gearbox to either a front-wheel drive or an all-wheel drive system, depending on the customer’s choice.
The Suzuki Hustler J Style will be priced at 1,479,600 Yen (INR 7.77 lakhs) for the 2WD variant and 1,605,960 Yen (INR 8.44 lakhs) for the top-end 4WD variant. Unlike its concept brothers, the ‘Hustler road bike style’ and ‘Hustler outdoor style’, the J Style edition has already hit production and is available for sale.
