Suzuki Hustler J Style II TMS-19

Two years ago, the Suzuki Hustler was presented as a concept at the Tokyo Motor Show. Since then, the minicar crossover has entered series production, and for this year’s show appeared in its facelifted Hustler J Style II form.

No changes in dimensions from the study – the production form measures in at 3,395 mm long, 1,475 mm wide and 1,665 mm tall, and retains the 658 cc three-cylinder petrol mill with idling stop, with a S-Ene Charge system in attendance. The latter uses an electric motor to assist the Hustler’s progress under acceleration. Also soldiering on, the CVT gearbox seen on 2013 car.

The facelift brings with it a newly-designed wide front bumper and a more formal-looking four-slat chrome grille. The Hustler J Style II also gets new alloy wheels, and while the interior remains virtually unchanged, the central screen head-unit seen previously has been replaced with a navigation system with a larger screen surface.

As before, the revised Hustler was presented at the TMS in a variety of exterior colours, though the production car features a more sedate black roof as opposed to the white seen on the studies in 2013.
