Commissioning its designers to immerse themselves in the lives of Suzuki's spirited SUV customers in order to re-evaluate the sport-utility market from the ground up, the automaker took the wraps off a bold new concept incorporating the five key ingredients buyers say they really want in a midsize SUV: versatility; functionality; safety; "infotainment," a seamless blend of navigation, music, news and information; and performance. While the Concept-X is planned as a concept only, a derivative of the vehicle is slated for production in 2006.

Continuing the adrenaline theme is the Concept-X's exterior implying road-holding ability and modern appeal all at once. The root of this "muscular" design - the large 20-inch, asymmetrical, six-spoke aluminium alloy wheels with bold wheel arches and flared fenders - gives the Suzuki Concept-X a surprisingly larger profile than its 72.2-inch width and 196.7-inch length would lead drivers to believe.

Adding to the vehicle's powerful presence is its dynamic wedge-shaped and wrap-rounded shoulder line. The aggressive styling is enhanced with LED headlamps and a distinctive "watermark" pattern projected from front turn signals. The SUV also embodies a modern satin silver chrome front and rear grille underguard. To showcase the look of speed and projection, the Concept-X boasts wide and bold integrated headlamps.

For a combination of entertainment and information, the Concept-X offers an array of technology for both driver and passengers. A satellite television and complete DVD/DVR player with dual 12-inch LCD screens are in the second and thirds rows. To enable passengers to stay productive while on the go, the Concept-X offers integrated Bluetooth technology for cellular phones, PDAs, e-mail and navigation to provide traffic and weather conditions and in-route course adjustment.

Suzuki is focused on the highest safety ideology and the Concept-X has many attributes to ensure optimum protection. The SUV features ABS, ESP (Electronic Stability Program) and curtain airbags for all six passengers. Dual, heat-sensing perimeter CCD cameras with a warning detector prevents driving over objects within the vehicle's proximity. Other key safety features include automatic 911 calling (for collision, airbag deployment or theft) and active cruise control.

In addition to a Concept-X production derivative planned in 2006, some of the elements incorporated into the vehicle are likely to find their way on other future Suzuki vehicles.
