Detroit motor show 2008 - Suzuki SXForce
14 January 2008
The warm hatch would be launched and promoted off the back of the firm's new World Rally Championship challenge, which begins in earnest this year.
The concept car features several motorbike-inspired items, including handlebars for a steering wheel, but if you cast them aside, it's clear the concept could easily become a road car.
The 2.0-litre turbocharged engine delivers 250bhp and is linked to a five-speed manual gearbox. Sports suspension aids handling, while sports brakes ensure rapid stopping power.
