Suzuki Motor Corporation is pleased to announce the world premiere of its A-segment hatchback concept model, the A:Wind, at the 30th Thailand International Motor Expo 2013 (press day: November 28; public days: November 30 through December 10).
The A:Wind is so named because it seeks to bring a fresh wind to the A-segment as a global compact car. Not constrained by conventional A-segment standards, it embodies the expertise in building compact cars that has made Suzuki admired around the world. An elegant-looking exterior and interior, a spacious, user-friendly cabin, and excellent fuel economy — this new concept model has it all.
The exterior colour scheme consists of Energy Yellow, evocative of the cheering and excitement of a stadium in midsummer, and Panoramic Blue, suggesting cloudless azure skies over tropical beaches. Energy Yellow produces a dynamic effect through the interplay of the shimmering greenish highlights with the assertive yellow in the shadows. The translucent Black Pearl of the roof, curving seamlessly into the windshield, suggests the comfort of the interior. Panoramic Blue conjures up a piercing blue sky extending endlessly in all directions with not a cloud in sight.
Suzuki is currently developing a production model based on the A:Wind, which is scheduled to go into production in 2014. This production model, Suzuki’s second car to meet Thailand’s eco-car fuel economy standards, is to be manufactured in Thailand and exported abroad.
