The Suzuki iM-4 4x4 concept has been revealed at the Geneva motor show.

The iM-4 is officially a concept car, but it is expected to make it into production in 2016. It is based on a new platform that is designed to cut weight, increase rigidity and improve handling.

The concept comes with a 4WD system, a high ground clearance and 18in alloy wheels. It is powered by a hybrid engine, which Suzuki is calling the SHVS (Smart Hybrid Vehicle by Suzuki) and features a 1.2-litre petrol engine, lithium-ion batteries and an engine start-stop system.

At 3693mm long, it is 18mm longer than a Suzuki Jimny, but 482mm shorter than the Vitara.
