We’ve seen the studio shots and professional videos, now here’s a few live snaps of the all-new Suzuki iK-2 Concept from the Gaikindo Indonesia International Motor Show.

The five-seater hatchback from Suzuki is expected to make its production form debut at the coming Frankfurt Motor Show in September, as the Suzuki Baleno, but is here in Indonesia to once again to remind us all of things to come.

What is it? Well, it isn’t expected at this time to be a replacement model for the Suzuki Swift, but more so a C-segment offering from the Japanese carmaker. In our previous report of the Suzuki iK-2’s first appearance, we pointed out that getting rid of the ‘Swift’ nameplate in favour of ‘Baleno’ wouldn’t be very likely, given the Swift’s strong reputation.

An all-new modular platform from Suzuki is expected to underpin the production model, and the Baleno will also be one to benefit from Suzuki’s latest BOOSTERJET 1.0-litre direct-injection turbocharged petrol engine.
