While Suzuki readies its first gasoline-electric car – the Kizashi hybrid – for 2011, it’s got some green vehicles on tap to show us in Frankfurt next month, including four that emit less than 120 grams of CO2 per kilometer.
Later in 2010, the Minor Change SX4 will be introduced. This diesel SX4 gets more performance from a new 2.0-DDiS engine (up from the 1.9-DDiS unit) but has 18 percent lower emissions. The gas-burning 2010 SX4, with the 1.6-litre engine, gets Variable Valve Timing and the cylinder head has been modified for better efficiency and emissions that are about 10 percent lower. The SX4 also benefits from exterior appearance upgrades that improve the aerodynamics and give it greater “sporting appearance.”
Suzuki’s small cars – like the Alto, the Splash and the Swift – will also be on display at the IAA. More details after the jump.
