Moscow Live – Suzuki iV-4 Concept
Nithyanandh K, As a toddler, those wheeled machinery fascinated me even before I knew what they’re called as! So here I'm, petrolhead by birth, Mechanical engineer by qualification and automotive reporter by profession!
Production to begin next year in Hungary.
The Suzuki iV-4 compact SUV concept which was first showcased at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show made its Russian debut at the 2014 Moscow International Auto Salon (Moscow Motor Show 2014) today morning.
The iV-4 (stands for Individuality Vehicle 4×4) previews a crossover which would rival the likes of Nissan Juke. The concept measures 4.21 m in length, 1.85 m in width and 1.66 m in height. The design highlights include a compartmentalized grille with honeycomb background, rugged looking bumper and small headlamps with angular LED elements.
The concept has a tall stance with high ground clearance. The roof is finished in contrasting grey while the rear fascia is characterized by dual exhausts, black lower body cladding, hexagonal license plate enclosure and wraparound taillights.

Powertrain details are not announced yet but the SX4 S-Cross’ 1.6-litre petrol and diesel motors are the strong contenders. The ALLGRIP 4WD system will be on offer.
Suzuki has previously announced that the production version will roll out from its Magyar plant in Hungary next year.
