Suzuki P.X. - Photo Update

Suzuki unveiled the P.X. concept last October at the 2005 Tokyo Motor Show. We didn’t get a great look at it then so we’re happy that Suzuki finally released a photo album’s worth of pictures on its media site. Many of you commented that Suzuki had designed a refreshing take on the minivan with the P.X., and these additional pics seem to support that. The brushed silver exterior contains what Suzuki calls “retro futuristic” styling cues that evoke the presence of classic Airstream trailers.

The interior of the P.X. is what really does it for us with a classy combination of chrome and what appear to be white leather surfaces, accented with bits of blue trim throughout. And those rear seats look comfy enough to use as my throne for the Superbowl.

Suzuki remarks in its press release that the P.X. showcases elements that may be used in future models. With the company currently enjoying a lift from the new Grand Vitara and preparing for the arrival of the SX4, one wonders if it will also roll the dice in the reinvigorated minivan market with something like the P.X.

Tons of pics and official press release after the jump…

Equipped with a 2.0-liter, water-cooled, four-cycle in-line, four-cylinder, DOHC 16-valve engine, Suzuki designers conceived a high-class vehicle with an environment that is streamlined and refreshingly plush and modern.

Exterior: The Suzuki P.X. has unique streamlined exterior styling with an aerodynamic front face and round body shape that measures 175 inches long and rides on an extended 118-inch wheelbase. With three doors on each side, the retro-futuristic styling cues and shape resemble classic Airstream caravans. The Suzuki P.X. is further defined with silver finish, horizontal breaks across its lamps and grille and ridges down its side panels. The vehicle stands out on the road due to large wheel arches with eyecatching moldings accentuated by stainless steel rivets combined with 20-inch aluminum alloy wheels and a wide wheelbase.

Interior: The P.X. is a spacious minivan concept that promises to provide an enjoyable driving experience. The interior features a luxurious cabin and unique seat layout, which focuses on first- and third-row seat usage. The minivan concept has three rows of plush Recaro seats with second-row foldaway functionality for limousine-style seating and room to stretch out. The third-row seating features a hidden table in the center console with hidden champagne glass holders. Muted leather-clad seating materials with light gray interior and aluminum trim finish are accentuated by blue electroluminescent lighting. For an enhanced driving experience, a classic, twin-cowl dashboard is combined with a liquid crystal control panel with flip-down LCD monitor.

As one of the most innovative minivan concepts in recent history, the Suzuki P.X. illustrates a wide range of possibilities for Suzuki’s vision in the future and showcases some of the elements the company may consider incorporating into Suzuki vehicles in years to come.
