Suzuki CrossHiker, X-Lander & Hustler Concepts for Tokyo Motor ShowTue, 29 Oct 2013 00:00:00 -0700
It’s the Tokyo Motor Show next month, and that’s a big deal for Japanese car makers, eager to make a statement at their home motor show, and Suzuki are quick out of the gate with three new concepts for the show. The Suzuki Crosshiker is a three-door crossover that comes complete with a big panoramic roof, weighs just a bit over 800kg, is about the size of a compact car – but higher riding, and is powered by a new, frugal three-cylinder engine.
Concept number two is the Suzuki X-Lander which get built on the underpinnings of the Jimny and gets four wheel drive with power coming from a 1.3 litre petrol engine mated to an electric motor.
The third of the concepts for Tokyo is the Hustler, another new crossover that looks set to be a butch minicar segment contender, with a butch SUV appearance and raised ride height, plenty of interior space and is suited to an active lifestyle, according to Suzuki.
We’ll no doubt get plenty more concepts appearing in the coming weeks from Japanese car makers for eager to make their mark at their home show.
