Suzuki to debut new compact sedan concept at Shanghai show

Suzuki has released teaser images of its upcoming Authentics concept sedan for reveal at the 2013 Shanghai Motor Show later this month. Suzuki has revealed that the new model will be a C-segment sedan, which comprises the bulk of the Chinese automobile market.

The Japanese automaker has described it the upcoming model as ‘Sporty x Elegant’. It has also been characterized with having a long wheel base and unconstrained form with a low slung roof and a strong character line for a wind-cutting image. No further details were given as to what engine will be powering the new car.

Suzuki recently released the SX4 Crossover, which is a C-segment model. We suspect that the upcoming concept will preview the SX4 sedan.  The Suzuki sedan was launched in the Philippines in 2008, and had an unsuccessful stint due to unpopular styling.
