There’s certainly no shortage of vehicles from Suzuki for the upcoming 2015 Tokyo Motor Show as aside from the new Ignis and the funky MIGHTY DECK concept, the Japanese marque has also prepared an interesting Air Triser concept. This takes the shape of a three-row minivan which from the outside reminds us of the Volkswagen Bulli concept from 2011.
As you would expect from a minivan, it adopts a boxy shape necessary to create a spacious interior cabin which in this case is actually the highlight of the concept. Why? Because Suzuki’s engineers have created a versatile cabin that can be arranged in a lounge mode with the seats forming a sofa shaped like the letter “U”. In addition, the interior can be reconfigured in a relaxation mode and in this case the seats are facing each other.
Getting inside the roomy cabin is easy to do since the Air Triser concept comes with sliding doors which are also very useful in a busy parking lot since you won’t need that much space to open the doors. Suzuki has kept the vehicle relatively small as it is just 4,200 mm long, 1,695 mm wide and with a 1,815 mm height. It uses LED technology for the lighting clusters and has received a two-tone body paint, double sunroof along with large multi-spoke alloys that come with red accents.
In terms of power, it has a four-cylinder 1.4-liter gasoline engine teamed up with an electric motor and a 5-speed automatic transmission. Suzuki hasn’t specified the combined output of the hybrid setup, but this isn’t really important in a minivan which is made primarily for carrying as many people as possible from point A to point B in a comfortable cabin which the concept certainly has.
The Air Triser concept will be on display for the public starting October 30 at the Tokyo Motor Show in Japan.
