The REGINA embodies Suzuki’s vision of a next-generation global compact car. 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. 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 exterior design is driven by aerodynamic requirements. Suzuki Regina Concept Among the features are the semi-covered rear wheels, the small rear view cameras and the crease lines running along the flanks, that guide the air flows up to the tapered rear end. Styling elements include the white color of the roof which contrasts with the bright green of the body, a hue that underlines the green credentials of the car.
The interior uses the same white-green color scheme – combined with dark grey plastic surfaces – and showcases a minimalistic approach combined with curved lines. A distinctive feature of the cabin is the center panel display assembly, consisting of a tilted transparent element attached on the center tunnel by means of a multi-function knob, looking like a bolt.
Concept car will be presented at Tokyo Motor Show.
