Suzuki’s Retro-Inspired Waku SPO Concept Headlines Their Tokyo Motor Show Lineup

The Tokyo Motor Show kicks off later this month and Suzuki is preparing for the event by previewing five new concepts.

The star of this year’s show will undoubtedly be the retro-inspired Waku SPO concept. Suzuki didn’t say much about the model, but it’s a compact coupe which features a plug-in hybrid powertrain that promises to be fun and exciting.

Interestingly, the automaker said the users can “switch its body shape, front mask and content shown on the dashboard” at the switch of a button. Suzuki didn’t elaborate, but the model might be able to transform into a convertible as there appears to be a cut line between the windshield frame and roof.

The Hanare concept goes in different direction as it’s billed as an autonomous cottage. The pod-like concept has a minimalist greenhouse, an illuminated grille and pronounced fender flares. Suzuki also hinted the model will have a “comfortable interior” that could resemble a lounge.

Moving on, the Hustler concept is a rugged crossover that is designed to appeal to adventurous types. Little else is known about the model, but it’s an even boxier take on the standard Hustler.

Speaking of Hustlers, Suzuki will also showcase a second concept. It features a two-tone paint job, a roof rack and a “Hustler” wrap on the doors.

Lastly, Suzuki created a concept with the Combi Corporation which specializes in baby products. It’s envisioned as private space where mothers can breast feed or change their baby’s diaper. The company says the model could be used at outdoor events or at shelters following a natural disaster such as an earthquake.

Besides the concepts, Suzuki will showcase an assortment of other vehicles including the XBee, Solio Bandit, Escudo / Vitara, Jimny Sierra / Jimny, Swift Sport and SX4 S-Cross. The company will also be bringing a handful of motorcycles including the Gixxer SF 250 and GSX-RR.

    The coupe is way cool (if the Germans are reading this, it’s the car with two doors).

      It’s 99.9% the 2nd generation Hustler. The article 100% fails to understand or mention this.
