There’s not much going on with Suzuki cars these days. All that could change at the Shanghai Motor Show when the Japanese automaker that specializes more on small vehicles and motorcycles introduces the Authentics Concept.
The concept, which has been described as one embracing Suzuki’s new design philosophy of "Sporty x Elegant," sure does look like a concept that could bring Suzuki’s design language into the new millennia.
Not much was revealed apart from these two teasers, but the images do offer some distinctive qualities about the Authentics Concept, including what certainly looks to be a sedan concept with a low roof line, sweptback headlights, massive taillights, a dual-exhaust system and a pretty long wheelbase.
The Suzuki press release also says the car has a "strong character line, which gives a wind-cutting image along with a rich and fine curved surface." That’s a way of describing the Authentics Concept that’ll surely have a lot of people interested in seeing what the car looks like when it rolls out of the shadows at the Shanghai Motor Show later this month.
Suzuki’s C-segment sedan concept model AUTHENTICS will make its world debut at the 15th Shanghai International Automobile Industry Exhibition, which will be held from 20 – 29 April, 2013.
The press day will take place on 20 April 2013 (Public days are from 21 to 29 April, 2013)
Concept model AUTHENTICS
AUTHENTICS is a concept model presented to enter the C-segment sedan class, which has the largest volume in the Chinese automobile market.
The model expresses "Sporty x Elegant" with its long wheelbase and an unconstrained form with its overall height kept low, as well as its strong character line which gives a wind-cutting image along with a rich and fine curved surface.
