FrankFurt Motor Show 2013 - Suzuki iV-4 Compact Crossover concept showcased

Suzuki Motor Corporation, Japan has showcased the iV-4 Concept at the recently held FrankFurt Motor Show 2013. The clear idea about the aggressive styling from Suzuki is here now. The concept car looks fantastic and the more it resembles to the actual production car, the better it is !

The iV-4 concept measures in at 4,215mm long, 1,850mm wide and 1,655mm tall and its front is dominated by an illuminated five-slot grille and roof-mounted fog lights with built-in laser sensor. At the rear, there are blackened mouldings, chrome diffuser, angular tail-lamps and twin exhausts. On the sides, the concept sports distinct lines that lend a futuristic character to the car. However, these stylistic influences are unlikely to be carried over to the production version.

Suzuki plans to start production of the iV-4 in 2015 at the company’s Magyar plant in Hungary and will be initially launching the compact SUV in European markets initially. The car will later be launched to other markets as well.

As far as engine options are concerned, the Japanese carmaker will equip this car with both petrol and diesel engines and so far 1.3LSDE is the only option that comes to our mind. However, we will have to wait and watch if Maruti Suzuki actually provides a 1.6L SDE engine from Fiat. No details on powertrain so far officially from the Japanese carmaker.
