Suzuki has revealed a compact concept at the Thailand International Motor Expo this week, previewing a new five-door city hatch.

Dubbed 'A:Wind', the new concept is likely a preview of the next Alto city car, replacing the current model that first appeared in 2008.

Reports suggest Suzuki's Australian arm may also switch branding for the new generation, moving to the 'Celerio' badge used in some markets.

Spy photos obtained in August add credence to the A:Wind's identity as the next Alto/Celerio, with a camouflaged light hatch spied with largely identical styling details.

This new hatch was developed by Suzuki's Indian subsidiary Maruti Suzuki, which also produced the current Alto, known in other markets as the A-Star and Celerio.

The A:Wind is largely the same size as the current Alto, measuring 3600mm long on a 2425mm wheelbase, 1600mm wide and 1450mm tall.

By comparison, the current Alto measures 3580mm long on a 2360mm wheelbase, 1680mm wide and 1400mm taller.

Power is again provided by a 1.0 litre petrol three-cylinder engine, mated exclusively - in concept form at least - to a CVT automatic transmission.

Power and fuel figures have not been revealed, although it is likely the small engine is an updated version of the current unit.

In concept form, the A:Wind's chrome grille garnish extends into the projector/LED headlight assembly, although our spy photos suggest this detail will not carry over to production - at least not with all models.

The production-friendly cabin design appears nearly identical to the spied hatch, with a two-tone dash dominated by a tall centre stack and a (relatively) large touchscreen display.

Watch for the A:Wind to make its Alto or Celerio-badged debut in early 2014, with an Australian launch likely to follow.
