Suzuki Japan has just unveiled their concept carSuzuki Regina at Tokyo Motor Show in Japan. Suzuki Regina is their global compact hatchback which will make it to production in couple of years from now. The Regina is new aerodynamic and rounded concept which has two USPs – High Fuel Efficiency and Low Emissions. The buzz word in the automobile industry globally under the rising fuel prices is the fuel economy, and Suzuki has tried to address the same with small light weight Regina concept which weighs just 730 Kg and has a very low wind resistance because of its aerodynamic styling. The fuel efficiency of Regina is expected to be close to 32 KMPL and CO2 emissions are expected to be as little as 70g/Km with its fuel efficient petrol engine.

After a long time, after Suzuki Concept S, which made it very large for Suzuki globally as popular Maruti Swift in India, Regina looks like a next promising attempt. To some extent, the Regina also looks rounded and much more aerodynamic than the swift. The side profile and aerodynamic lines running along the car makes it look like its completely an output of the Wind tunnel testing by Suzuki R&D in Japan.

The top look of the car is also very smooth and the rear spoiler integration with the roof also look very sporty. The overall design is with large wheelbase with the axles put at almost the extreme and and have a wide track for high stability and good handling. The overall ride height and center of gravity appears to be low making it a stable design around the corners.
