SHANGHAI, China - Suzuki is exhibiting two concept models and its new 1.4-litre BoosterJet turbo petrol engine, at the 2015 Shanghai auto show in China.
The iK-2 and iM-4 made their Chinese debut after their global unveiling at the 2015 Geneva auto show in March. The iK-2 is a compact car which, the automaker says, will make its way into production to all markets.
The iM-4 represents a new vehicle category for Suzuki as it aims to target compact SUV and crossover rivals. Suzuki is considering the launch of a production version of its new iM-4.
The Shanghai show also marked the global debut of Suzuki’s new turbocharged direct-injection petrol engine. Known as the BoosterJet, the 1.4-litre unit will be launched in China before the automaker expanding availability to global markets.
