Suzuki Indonesia unveiled the Ignis Suzuki Sport and Baleno Suzuki Sport at GIIAS 2018 on August 2. Here are images accompanied with videos from the Indonesian auto show.
Suzuki Sport is a new variant aimed at making its cars more desirable to young Indonesian customers who want a sporty, stylish and exclusive model. It’s still at a conceptual stage, and the finishing touches will be based on what the feedback from the show-goer is.
The Ignis Suzuki Sport is based on the Suzuki Ignis Sport edition. It features a body kit consisting of front, side and rear underbody spoilers and a rear roof spoiler. This body kit, as well as the LED DRLs on the grille, are from the Sport edition that is already on sale. The difference between the two is the yellow finish on the underbody spoilers, yellow/purple decals and the Suzuki Sport branding on the hood and the sides. Inside, the concept model features Suzuki Sport branded seats with white stitching.
The Indonesian-spec Suzuki Ignis/Suzuki Ignis Sport Edition use the K12M 1.2-litre petrol engine that produces 83 PS at 6,000 rpm and 113 Nm of torque at 4,200 rpm. A 5-speed manual transmission or the 5-speed AGS automated manual transmission sends power to the wheels.
The Baleno Suzuki Sport’s main highlight is the five-double-spoke alloy wheels made by JF Luxury, a local aftermarket wheel maker. The underbody spoilers are already offered in the standard Baleno, but in the concept they are in the striking red colour for a sportier look. Other exterior features include Suzuki Sport branding on the sides and the hood in red colour and body side moulding. Inside, the concept model has seats with Suzuki Sport branding in red (front-only) and red stitching.
The Indonesian-spec Suzuki Baleno employs the K14B 1.4-litre petrol engine that develops 92.4 PS at 6,000 rpm and 130 Nm of torque at 4,200 rpm. 5-speed manual and 4-speed automatic are the transmission choices.
