Suzuki Jimny redesign previewed with XA-Alpha concept
Suzuki has unveiled a concept SUV that hints at a future model. Dubbed the XA-Alpha concept, the design was unveiled at the 2012 Delhi Auto Expo.
The Suzuki Jimny has long been the 4×4 of choice for those who can’t afford anything better. It is pure speculation so far whether a future 4×4 based on the XA-Alpha will simply join the range alongside the Jimny, or replace the Jimny outright. The XA-Alpha is a fair bit larger than the Jimny so as to offer better everyday comfort, but Suzuki says it will retain its offroad capability, just like the phussified Jimny did when it replaced the Samurai.
While no engine choice has been announced for the concept, it will be built on an all-new platform. It will be designed primarily to serve the growing Indian market.
