Slightly OT: Suzuki SX Concept



When I saw this, I almost fell out of my chair. This car is awesome!! 220 HP and All Wheel Drive. I have been wanting Suzuki to develop a pocket rocket for a long time. I really hate they dumped the Swift GT/GTi. What got me even more though was the possibilities this new vehicle will open up. For one thing, the specs on suzuki's site say it uses a supercharged version of the 2.0L engine. It is not a far stretch to image installing one of the superchargers onto a 2.0L vitara!! I really hope Suzuki plans to build the SX, and maybe even build a 2 door hatchback version.

Re: Slightly OT: Suzuki SX Concept

Well, Suzuki has a habit building concept cars that look very different on the outside from their production counterparts. Just look at the XL-7 for instance and the concept XL-6 version. I kinda like the look (even though it does remind me of a Focus Wagon)...but I doubt it will look the same if it goes into production.

Looks like a lowered Honda CR-V.

I like the idea though, and the HP. Subaru came out with the WRX, hopefully Suzuki will do the same.

Re: Slightly OT: Suzuki SX Concept

You are right, if you changed the front grill slightly it would look just like a Jetta Wagon. I like it, not that I would ever buy one but it does have strong European styling.
