2016 Suzuki IM-4 exterior and interior design
Well, we can say that 2016 Suzuki IM-4 is coming with very interesting design. New model is coming with the look that is hard to compare to other models of the company. It comes with front end which combines modern and retro elements, giving interesting combination. When you look this model from a side, you can see a boxy look, with extremely angular lines giving this model a little bit funny profile. Same thing is with rear end, where new Suzuki IM-4 features rear fascia with interesting lighting work and other details that reminds a little bit on futuristic cars from old 70s movies.
Exterior look is interesting, but definitely not one of those that will be liked by everyone. When it is about interior, we still don’t know exact details, but it is expected that 2016 IM-4 will borrow most of the design solutions from IK-2 model.
