Tokyo Motor Show 2017: Suzuki XBee should be our next Wagon R

Tokyo Motor Show 2017: Suzuki XBee should be our next Wagon R

Suzuki has showcased a new compact car concept, the XBee, at the Tokyo Motor Show 2017. Measuring less than 4m in length and its tall-boy build, we think we should finally have the Wagon R look a little different after almost two-decades of almost the same car.

The XBee concept is a tad under 3.7 metres in length, and is powered by a 1.0-litre K-Series engine just like the Wagon R. But, the styling is crossover-ish, justifying the ‘X’ in the badge. The tiny 13-inch wheels sit in the rather large squared wheel arches and the XBee gets peripheral dual-tone cladding. 

Even the front bumper gets a faux bash-plate as well as a cross-bar like member. The Mini Cooper-like headlamps and half-grille might be catering to the Japanese tastes. Inside, the XBee has a lot of funk and practicality. The busy dash houses a touchscreen infotainment system a score of cubby holes and also the gear lever. You can see a lot of storage spaces as well as cabin space in the picture.

Being a tall-boy design space will not be an issue and looks like the XBee has decent boot space as well. As we have said before, it is powered by the K10 C engine that drives the front wheels through automatic transmission. We genuinely hope MSIL reinvents the Wagon R for India and the XBee is certainly the direction we would like it to progress.
