Suzuki's i20 challenger unveiled at Geneva Motor Show


 Suzuki has unveiled the new iK-2 concept at the ongoing Geneva Motor Show 2015.  The Suzuki iK-2 is a premium hatchback which is expected to spawn a future production model that will be sold globally. The production version of the Suzuki iK-2 concept was spied by us last year as theMaruti YRA. This new hatchback is expected to sit above the Swift in Suzuki’s global line-up and will take on the likes of the Hyundai i20 and Honda Jazz in global markets including India.

This concept unlike the usual hatchbacks we’ve seen from Suzuki, breaks the norm of the upright C-pillar look. Its rear slopes down and ends in a steeply raked windscreen. The iK-2’s side reveals pronounced haunches and a window line that rises towards the rear. One can easily make out that the production version of this concept will be much wider than the Swift and longer too although it wont come with the flared wheel arches seen on the concept.
The Suzuki iK2 concept is 4023mm long, 1709mm wide and 1450mm high and has a wheelbase of 2520mm. It sits on 18-inch alloy wheels in the concept form, however we expect Maruti to bring it to India with 15-inch units.
The Suzuki iK-2 concept is equipped with a new 1.0-litre BoosterJet motor – a direct-injection turbo-petrol unit. Suzuki has confirmed that the production version of the iK-2 concept will be launched in European markets in 2016. We expect Maruti to showcase it as well at the upcoming Auto Expo 2016 early next year.
