The Suzuki iM-4 is a small SUV, following in the footsteps of the likes of the LJ and the Jimny

The Suzuki iM-4 has been revealed at the Geneva motor show.

The model is officially a concept car, but it is expected to make it into production in 2016. It is based on a new platform that aims to cut weight, increase rigidity and improve handling.

The iM-4 comes with a 4WD system, a high ground clearance and 18in alloy wheels. It is powered by a mild hybrid engine, which Suzuki is calling the SHVS (Smart Hybrid Vehicle by Suzuki) and features a 1.2-litre petrol engine, lithium-ion batteries and a start-stop system.

At 3693mm long, it is 18mm longer than Jimny, but 482mm shorter than the Vitara.

Nah, new Ignis

Judging from the external pictures only I'd say that's the most similar recent Suzuki. With the lack of a rear quarter window and styling that suggests a saloon is a possibility (window line meets kink in rear end) I can't really see it being a direct Jimny replacement.

The Ignis 4x4 had almost as much ground clearance as a Jimny (17cm vs. 19cm) but was a 4 door car much the same size as this one.
