Suzuki have wheeled out a bunch of new concepts at this year's Tokyo Motor Show, and two of them are borrowing badges from older models - Baleno and Ignis.

Both of these concepts beg the question of why Suzuki needs two more small car models, given that the Swift is the only badge anyone really cares about. Apparently the Baleno, which looks like the result of a Pulsar mating with a Cruze hatcback, is going to be pitched at the luxury small car market (assuming that is actually a thing).

The Ignis will replace the aging Jimny with a crossover platform that sits below the new Vitara.

The cool thing about the Ignis is that the styling is a clear nod to the SC100 Cervo, and that has been done really well.

Then we come to the Mighty Deck - and no prizes for guessing what inspired this creation.

The Baleno is hideous, I can't see many luxury small car buyers trading their Audi A1's in to buy a new Baleno!

The Ignis concept looks ok, I doubt the engine is in the back like the SC100 or Mitsi I-car though.

I think the back of the baleno looks nice (cover the rest of the car and you'll see). :lol:

The new ignis; it could be a thing. Maybe for samurai fans? I don't like it.

No news on a new new swift sport?? Would love to see the new new swift sport with the boosterjet engine. (k14b)

I'd say that Samurai (Jimny/Sierra) fans will be pretty disappointed. Like the new Vitara* the Ignis isn't a proper 4WD. There's no low range, and very little ground clearance.

*Interesting to note that the new Vitara is an S-Cross with an SUV body. Suzuki have given up on the niche 4WD market and are aiming squarely at the trendy urban scene.
