Suzuki Hustler “square” mini crossover debuted in TokyoOctober 23, 2019
The next-generation Suzuki Hustler concept has become even more angular. But the manufacturer decided to keep a perfectly functioning motor range.
Suzuki unveiled at the Tokyo Motor Show a new version of the Hustler for the domestic market, which is considered a crossover and key car hybrid. Recall that the previous generation of this model has been manufactured since 2013, the basis for it was the platform from Suzuki Wagon R. The novelty differs from its predecessor in even more “square” shapes and a third side window. On this, at first glance, the differences end, except that the doorways have become higher and wider.
Even the ultimate size and maximum power of the Hustler have been preserved. Otherwise, the model would lose its key-car status, which implies tax and insurance benefits.
The manufacturer has worked more thoroughly on the new interior. Now here you can meet two color displays at once: one – multimedia, the second – dashboard. When decorating the interior, new materials were used that were easy to clean, and the boot floor received a rubber coating. Multifunction, in turn, got new features.
The 0.66-liter 3-cylinder engine in two versions, atmospheric or turbocharged, is still moving the novelty. Each such motor receives a 48-volt starter-generator and a braking energy recovery system. For the transmission of torque, the variator is responsible here. It is expected that the serial Suzuki Hustler will almost completely repeat the concept. The timing of its entry into the market has not yet been announced.
