On show: iV-4 concept car

iV-4 concept

Suzuki’s bread and butter for decades has been small cars and 4x4s. Now it appears the two are going to combine as the iV-4 concept hints at a new production model.

Aimed squarely at the likes of Nissan’s Juke and Renault’s Captur, the production car the iV-4 will spawn should reach showrooms towards the end of 2014.

Familiar design cues for the larger Grand Vitara abound with a clamshell bonnet and a new version of the five-slot grille that’s been a feature of the Jimny for many years.
