Suzuki that unveiled the india-bound iK-2 premium hatchback has also showcased the all-new 4x4 mini SUV concept at the ongoing Geneva Motor Show. The sub-4 metre SUV is likely to enter the production in 2016. According to the manufacturer, the iM-4 4x4 mini SUV is based on the "Shape the Inspiration" theme. Since the platform is light, it contributes to the car's performance and fuel efficiency.

The mini SUV features a large grille flanked by encapsulated headlights. It is equipped with a clam-shell bonnet, side body moulding and blacked-out A- and B-pillars. The wheel arches have been fitted to new 18-inch wheels with five-trapezoidal design. The car features high ground clearance to tackle rugged road conditions.

Though the company hasn't officially said anything about its plans of launching it in India, we believe that the company might bring it here considering the growing popularity for small SUVs here.
