Suzuki will unveil a pair of new concepts at next month’s Geneva Motor Show, with one described by the Japanese carmaker as “an iconic 4x4”.
Called the iM-4 concept, the model is described as “an all-new proposal from Suzuki, packed with its compact 4x4 DNA and new technologies.
Styling is said to be “distinctive”, following a theme called “Shape the Inspiration”.
Suzuki fans are buzzing at the news, which hints at a preview for the next-generation Jimny off-roader.
If the shadowy teaser is anything to go by, the Jimny’s new look will be a radical departure from the relatively simple ‘boxy’ styling it currently carries.
The Jimny recently made its return to the Australian market following a forced stint on the sideline due a lack of standard electronic stability control (ESC).
Returning as a refreshed model, the Jimny has just entered its 17th year on the market in one form or another.
Upon promising a replacement, Suzuki also reportedly promised that the new Jimny would not become a ‘soft-roader’ - instead retaining its rugged off-road ability.
Joining the iM-4 in Geneva will be the iK-2 concept; described as a compact-sized car designed under the theme “Harmonised Force”.
Further details on either concept are scarce, with more information to follow in the weeks leading up to Geneva.
