Default Suzuki Makai concept: SX4 based convertible!

Suzuki showcased a new concept car - Makai, at the LA Auto show. Suzuki is showcasing the car as the outdoorsy convertable ideal for a day out at the beach. The car has a lot of innovative interior features ideal for a fun day out at the beach.

Oh no. They have ruined it.

Can they make anything uglier than that? Or maybe more girly?

Cummon Folks its just a Suzuki. We cant expect them to go understated and all.

If the Jokers turned serious, life wouldn't be fun.

Would convertibles be a good option looking at the condition of air (dust,smoke, noise pollution) in India?

I doubt.. 95% of the time u will have to keep it closed.. not sure how the weather and conditions are near the sea side (excluding mumbai).

Oh my good Lord! What have you done to your children at Suzuki!

I guess these guys were either drunk or missing their brains when they did this!

maybe a new concept in cars to shed off weight why not try using lightweight bamboo seats instead the car will ultimately fly in first gear

Note from the Support Staff: Some punctuation would make your post(s) easier to read.

I'd want my garden chairs to be in the garden, not in a car.
