Suzuki Xbee Could Be The Coolest Thing At The 2018 Tokyo Salon

Maybe it’s a fad, maybe Proust was right and we’re just harkening back to our childhood. But there’s something we really dig about an SUV wrapped in camouflage.

Not the shape-obscuring wraps automakers put on their prototypes, but proper military-style multicolor camo – like the treatment on this Suzuki.

Called the Xbee Winter Adventure, it’s a conceptual version of the retro-rugged compact crossover that Suzuki recently released, and will now exhibit at the Tokyo Auto Salon… complete with blue-grey camo, yellow accents, and roof rack.

Of course the Xbee isn’t the only vehicle that the Japanese automaker will show at the forthcoming exhibition. There’ll also be a camper version of the new Spacia wagon, a Carry pickup rigged for fishing, and a Swift Sport done up in matte black and red accents to mirror the GSX-S1000 superbike alongside which it will be exhibited.

Suzuki will have 12 vehicles on show in all, including versions of the Solio Bandit, Alto Works, Wagon R Stingray, and Spacia Custom. But with apologies to that sporty little Swift, it’s the camo Xbee we like most.

    Replacement Jimmy?

    • No Jimny will have it’s own replacement. There is a huge cult of Jimny in Japan and they would like next gen Jimny to be simple and robust without much of electronic aids.

      The Xbee meanwhile is aimed towards younger generations with its catchy design, but no way it could defeat Jimny in the field.

  • The carry pick up looks great! I can imagine it’s the car that Japanese survivalist would dying to.

    The Xbee looks like a mini FJ Cruiser, only much cuter and sweeter.. .I like it.
