Suzuki had showcased two concept vehicles at the 85th Geneva Motor Show, which were called iK-2 and iM-4. Both models will be launched soon with iK-2 being called Baleno premium hatchback.
iM-4 from Suzuki is their compact SUV 4x4 model which, they have now filed a patent for. Japanese automobile manufacturer now confirms that production will commence soon.
At this moment no name has emerged for the iM-4 compact SUV by Suzuki and we can expect it post Baleno launch. It will be launched in India as well and is expected to first go on sale in European countries by mid-2016.
> From the exterior design of Suzuki iM-4, it does not look like a
genuine compact SUV. It resembles a hatchback with higher stance and better ground clearance and more like a crossover from Baleno hatchback.
Most of the design elements will be retained as it was shown at concept stage. The iM-4 compact SUV 4x4 model will get minor tweaks, which will cut down production costs.
Under the hood would be two petrol and a single diesel engine option provided by Suzuki. In India, they could use the same engine options that will be offered in their soon to be launched Baleno premium hatchback.
