The list of features that makes Suzuki iM-4 Concept one of a kind is rather long. Its first appearance was at Geneva motor show in 2015, after which it had a very successful worldwide tourney. The first impression was that Suzuki iM-4 Concept will be a tough competition to all other top SUVs on the market. At the first look, it seems compact, but it radiates with raw power. It is impossible not to notice that this SUV reminds of some of the previous models, such as Suzuki SC 100.
Suzuki iM-4 – Design Build:
Designers in one of the best Japanese car factories made sure that Suzuki iM-4 Concept looks astonishing. The front of the car, more precisely, the grill, gives an impression of coolness, as it looks like beach sunglasses. Under that coolness, designers put the large front bumper which evokes the feeling of unprecedented masculinity. The big led lights empowered with safety fog lights make the driver feel confident, regardless of whether they’re cruising through the city or going on an off-road adventure. The sense of aerodynamics is awakened with its roof, that is overwhelmingly similar to a helmet. Underneath lie eighteen-inch wheels with five trapezoid design. After its release, the iM-4 will be available in the elegant white, which is the right color to start with.
The interior will have a modest number of upscale features, including leather covered seats (with plenty head and leg room). In front of the driver, behind the pretty standard wheel, stands out the dashboard with a large touchscreen that will have a role to report any malfunction or to give the detailed insights of the car’s features. The manufacturers announced that Suzuki will also obtain dual climate control system, USB port, wireless Bluetooth for hands-free phone, and among other security features it will include airbags.
Suzuki iM-4 – Engine and Performance:
The new model has a 1.2 dual jet, 4-cylinder direct turbo engine. This engine will produce an 89 hp. The same engine was used in the Suzuki Swift, which is very light-weight, thus making this SUV quite agile. The lithium-ion battery and an integrated starter generator will make sure to decrease fuel consumption, which will characterize iM-4 Concept as an economic hybrid. Another addition to the power consumption efficiency is the regenerative braking system which will also make changing of terrain very enjoyable.
Suzuki iM-4 – Possible Arrival Date and MSRP:
The release date of the new Concept isn’t announced yet. But the rumor says it will be during 2017. The manufacturer’s suggested retail price will be from $15.000 to $ 20.000. Finally, the main rival will be Mini Countryman.
