Suzuki iM-4 crossover spotted on test

Suzuki iM-4 crossover spotted on test

Suzuki’s upcoming crossover model, called iM-4, is years away from hitting the showrooms, however, early prototypes have been spotted testing. When launched, this new model will be sold in Europe as a two or four-wheel drive, and will be powered by a range of naturally aspirated and new turbocharged petrol engines. 

The iM-4 was first shown in concept guise at this year’s Geneva Motor Show. The vehicle will eventually be sold alongside the Celerio small car at the bottom end of Suzuki’s model line-up. It will be sold as an entry-level crossover with the competition coming in the form of the Fiat Panda 4x4.

According to sources, the iM-4’s design is near-production ready and there will be few changes to the concept car’s styling. Bearing little resemblance to Suzuki’s modern range, the iM-4 harks back to the brand’s old models.

Under the hood will be Suzuki’s 1.2-litre Dualjet petrol engine and a new 1-litre turbocharged ‘Boosterjet’ petrol engine. 

The iM-4 is expected to be revealed for European markets in the next couple of years. As for the Indian market, we are not sure if this new model is the right fit for Maruti Suzuki to take on the growing entry-level crossover segment, despite its compact dimensions and engine size making it eligible for excise concessions. The question, then, remains whether Suzuki will contemplate the iM-4 concept-based vehicle for the Indian market or come up with an Asia-specific model instead?
