As we get closer to the opening day of the 2020 Tokyo Auto Salon on January 10, more automakers are releasing details about their lineups.
Suzuki is no exception, with the carmaker announcing a total of seven exhibits for the event, including three reference vehicles based on the new Hustler kei car, Jimny Sierra small off-roader and Suzuki Swift Sport hot hatch.
The Suzuki Hustler Street Base is a custom concept that makes the production kei car more versatile and fashionable. It targets young people who enjoy street sports such as BMX, skateboarding and "dancing in the city", whatever that means.

The exterior features a matte color inspired by a shipping container with matching rims, gloss black trim surrounding the grille and headlights, silver bumper inserts and mirror caps, as well as a custom treatment for the roof. Inside, Suzuki says the Hustler Street Base offers an ambiance similar to a live venue with many speakers and lights.
Moving on to the Suzuki Jimny Sierra Marine Style, it’s designed as "a sophisticated adult marine leisure vehicle." The exterior features a rugged look courtesy of custom wheels shod with Yokohama Geolandar off-road tires, a steel front bumper incorporating two tow hooks, side steps and a custom roof box.
Speaking of the roof box, it’s flanked by two cases that can hold fishing rods on the sides and features an attached LED light bar at the front. The vehicle will be exhibited alongside the 'S17’ small boat.
The third main exhibit is the Swift Sports Katana Edition, built as a tribute to the Katana motorcycle. Now, you may recall that Suzuki released a limited edition Swift Sport Katana earlier this year in the Netherlands.
The Swift Sport Katana Edition is similar to that model, but takes the customization a step further as the hot hatch gains a widebody kit with broader fenders, custom side skirts, black alloys with red accents, gloss black grille, front lip spoiler and mirror caps, smoked lights and windows, and Katana graphics.
We don’t get to see the interior, but Suzuki says it’s spiced up with gradient titanium reminiscent of a heated muffler and red accents.
