Suzuki to Show Splash Mini-MPV Concept in Paris

Suzuki's planning a new model to slot into its range of small cars and various manner of 'UVs, and they've got a "clinic model" — a concept car that's had all of its shots — as a teaser. The Splash concept, which will debut at the Paris show in September, is a multipurpose vehicle intended to appeal to a wide customer base with "diverse requirements for their personal transportation" (uh oh, another one of those). Built on the same platform as the diminuative Swift, the five-seater Splash incorporates a tall body and a user-friendly interior design, and is powered by a new 1.2-liter, 16-valve, four-cylinder gas engine (sorry, no Hayabusa powerplant), with four-speed automatic. Suzuki's also showing off its new Euro-spec Swift Sport flagship, which is like the Swift, only with more sportiness.
