How come this wasn’t produced yet?

This concept appears to be most fitting of any purpose.

R3 is the very promising and futuristic MPV that I’ve seen. Overall, it is above average and could beat their record sales if it’ll proceed to production. 

Of course, it is versatile because it’s intended for multipurpose.

Everything about this is a proof of innovative technology. This is exactly the car I want as it seems versatile too.

The car is very roomy that can hold up to six passengers. This concept is unique and completely different from any other Suzuki cars.

This concept is very intriguing on its final outlook! It seems so impressive, and I noticed that the interior had a futuristic touch. Anyway, what’s the figure performance of this? And when will be the debut of this?

Cool interior and exterior! Such an impressive concept, I will surely wait on this one. I really want to see this in person.

Impressive styling and color. smiley even the black and white interior touch seems so awesome on it but I must say that, I either would prefer Skoda Roomster.

I agree with you, the Kizashi would of been better if it had an engine with more torque. I think though for day-to-day driving it’s better to have a more broad torque curve than a peaky one. It can get annoying to have a motor you have to spin to 5,000+ rpm before it wants to get moving.

I prefer the the Skoda Roomster either..still cool though.

It on the Maruti Suzuki Ritz platform, as told to me by a senior director in the company, who’s also head of R&D.

Highly sophisticated MPV, very futuristic and technologically advance.

That is totally cool. Very spacious and very confortable. The engine is cool. The color combination is outstanding.

well susuki is really keeping up with the phase, this is a good looking concept car hopefully they’ll build a prototype of this and Included in the geneva auto show.

is this car already out? I really like the design and the concept of the car, and the door really rocks.

Yeah, very nice design and the color of the car is really futuristic. And the door, I can only see these kind of doors in some shows where they customized the car.

Nice concept MPV from suzuki, looks really futuristic and eco friendly one. suzuki is really keeping up with the technological trends today and for the future.
