Default 2007 Suzuki SX4 "Zuk" Concept @ 2006 SEMA

2007 Suzuki SX4 "Zuk" Concept @ 2006 SEMA



Press Release:
Quote:
Inspired by Suzuki’s world-renowned, championship-winning sportbikes, and derived from the new SX4 sport X-over, the Zuk concept offers solid functionality both on the road and the track. Built by Road Race Motorsports of Santa Fe Springs, Calif., the sporty Zuk is powered by a 300-horsepower, 2.0-liter turbocharged and intercooled engine with alcohol injection system, matched to a five-speed manual transmission.

Designed for ultimate street performance, the stunning SX4 concept features a sophisticated all-wheel-drive system, excellent stability and crisp handling characteristics. The Zuk features Suzuki Hayabusa and GSX-R-inspired bodywork, ground effects, mirrors, spoiler and exhaust, all wrapped in blue metallic paint and carbon fiber. Framing accent lights highlight the Zuk’s motorcycle-themed structure and cage, while strategically placed openings reveal the vehicle’s powertrain, wheels, tires and chassis details. The fully drivable and track-tested Zuk is equipped with a fully tuned performance suspension system, 19-inch alloy wheels and high-performance tires.

The motorcycle-inspired design continues inside the Zuk, revealing a functional, modern sportbike-styled space frame and roll cage. Cove lighting further accentuates the superbike-inspired structural frame and draws attention to the GSX-R-inspired instrument cluster. Minimalist racing seats with charcoal and carbon fiber interior trim and touch points provide interior comfort and complement the Zuk’s optimal driving experience. Other race-inspired interior appointments include center switches and gauge set – evocative of Suzuki racing heritage – and machined aluminum driver and navigator foot platforms cantilevered for an exciting motorcycle feel.

This would be a nice weekend track car, but I just can't imagine something like that as a DD.

They should make something small and tossable like the old Swift GTi.

Check out the USTCC SX4 ('GodZUKI') to be driven by Gary Sheehan (and Sam Mitani).

I just checked this car out. What a great little car. It's only missing a turbo. Maybe to come down the road. Let's hope so.

I think the SX4 is neat, and if they offer a more powerful one, it could possibly sway me from buying another subaru (emphasis on "possibly"). On the other hand, if they bring over the Swift GTi, all bets are off -- the current one is a badass little car.
