Suzuki Regina concept hints at brand’s new global compact car

At the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show later this year, Suzuki will unveil its vision of a next-generation global compact car with the most obvious things that new compact cars are supposed to have – “excellent fuel efficiency and low emissions thanks to lightness and superior aerodynamics.”

“It’s as light as a minicar (just 730kg) thanks to a clear focus on minimizing weight, and it has a drag coefficient at least 10% lower than that of current models thanks to uncompromising efforts to heighten aerodynamic performance,” Suzuki says in a statement. “As a result, it has fuel economy of at least 32km/L (measured in the JC08 test cycle) and CO2 emissions as low as 70g/km (measured in the New European Driving Cycle) using a petrol engine.”

The four-passenger Suzuki Regina measures just 3,550mm long, 1,630mm wide and 1,430mm tall – riding on 2,425mm wheelbase.
