Mystery sedan concept from Suzuki headed to 2013 Shanghai Motor Show
Kaustubh Shinde, They say sooner or later your passion finds you. Sometime in late 2009, I started writing for IAB and ever since then it has been a roller coaster ride for me. An amazing experience that has taught me a lot, taken me to new places, driven some great cars and met some amazing people. When you don't find me on IAB (very rarely), you will find me either at a coffee shop or an eatery or at the nearest gadget store. Hope you enjoy IAB as much as we do!
Responsejp.com reports that Suzuki is all set to unveil a concept sedan at the 2013 Shanghai Auto Expo.
From the images, it seems to be a very sporty design with sexy rear fascia. There are very few details available about this new concept car.
We are aware that this is a C-segment sedan with a long wheel base and reduced height specifically designed for the Chinese market. It has a very sporty and elegant design with strong character lines flowing through the body.
The concept might transform into an all-new sedan for the Chinese market. After all, the C segment sedan category accounts for most volumes in the China. In such cases, we can only appreciate the design as it won’t be India-bound anytime soon.
The second possibility is that it could be a replacement to the SX4 sedan. Suzuki recently showcased the S-Cross Crossover at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. The S-Cross is a successor to the SX4 crossover – a pseudo off roader version of the SX4 hatchback. The SX4 sedan sold in the Indian market is essentially a ‘booted’ version of the SX4 hatchback sold in European market.
Looking at the popularity of the SX4 sedan, Suzuki might be tempted on developing an all-new SX4 sedan replacement grounds up. It could be developed for emerging markets such as India and China where the sedan market is still thriving well.
Stay tuned as we try to find out more about this mystery concept.
