At the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show later this year, Suzuki will unveil its vision of a next-generation global compact car with the most obvious things that new compact cars are supposed to have – “excellent fuel efficiency and low emissions thanks to lightness and superior aerodynamics.”
“It’s as light as a minicar (just 730kg) thanks to a clear focus on minimizing weight, and it has a drag coefficient at least 10% lower than that of current models thanks to uncompromising efforts to heighten aerodynamic performance,” Suzuki says in a statement. “As a result, it has fuel economy of at least 32km/L (measured in the JC08 test cycle) and CO2 emissions as low as 70g/km (measured in the New European Driving Cycle) using a petrol engine.”
There sure is a hint of Swift in the rear end of the car. We would also safely expect the body colored trim to make it to the production models spawned out of the Regina. I particularly like the well defined waistline of the car, though the treatment done to the rear wheel arches may not be to everyone’s taste.
The four-passenger Suzuki Regina measures just 3,550mm long, 1,630mm wide and 1,430mm tall – riding on 2,425mm wheelbase.
