It weighs just 810kgs which is light for a crossover. It is powered by a 1.0-litre 3 cylinder engine that looks to find the right balance between performance and efficiency.
Next is the X-LANDER. It is Suzuki's 4WD hybrid vehicle that will help deal customers with the city traffic as also allow them to go dune bashing as and when required. It comes equipped with a hybrid 1.3-litre engine and a new automated manual transmission.
Then comes the Hustler. Basically a minicar looking to attract crossover enthusiats too, the Hustler combines 'an exterior that looks like it belongs in the outdoors with a roomy, comfortable, and useful interior'. There will also be a Hustler Coupe.
Suzuki will also bring the iV-4 compact SUV that was also showcased at the Frankfurt Auto Show. It comes with the company's 4WD system ALLGRIP. The iV-4 is expected to be launched in 2015 in Europe. Closer home, Maruti Suzuki may debut it at the upcoming Auto Expo in Feb 2014.
