Suzuki to bring out a pint-size fleet for 2024 Tokyo Auto Salon

No Jimny to be seen here, though

Suzuki is a brand synonymous with small cars (next to Daihatsu), and for this year’s Tokyo Auto Salon at Makuhari Messe, kei car and hatchback enthusiasts are in for a treat—from recreational and outdoorsy vehicles to a peek into the future of the brand.

Two of its current kei offerings have received the off-the-grid treatment. The Spacia van is ready for any camping trip with the Papa Boku Kitchen edition. Coated in a two-tone color scheme, this variant wears a Jimny-inspired fascia, and as its name suggests, its rear seat and trunk were altered to make room for a cooking space.

On the more extreme side, the Super Carry truck looks the part for an off-road hike. Despite its tiny wheels and stature, the Mountain Trail ditches its doors and standard bed for an external roll cage, a metallic skid plate, an LED lightbar, racing seats, and all-terrain tires.

A TAS booth from a manufacturer wouldn’t be complete without an abstract design on an upcoming model, and the new Swift will take center stage in a Cool Yellow Metallic paint job with blacked-out wheels and simple stripy decals.

Hopefully, by 2025, we will soon be introduced to the next-generation Swift Sport, but for this coming January 12-14, these three models shall inspire future owners to bring life to their life-size toys.
