The Suzuki Q Concept Car Rolls Down the Road with Optomized Agility

— November 15, 2011 — Autos
City folk are beginning to see the benefits of driving a compact car so one would assume that the Suzuki Q might be well received by consumers. The two-seater vehicle is perfect for toting around town with one person or a pair, ideal for urban commuters who wrestle with traffic and tight parking daily.

The designers of this miniature automobile were inspired by the compactness of motorcycles which can carry two passengers at high speeds and remain nearly impervious to the inconveniences mentioned above. This is the reason that the second seat has been rearranged directly behind the driver so that the dimensions of the micro car could be greatly minimized in width.

At just 2.5 meters long, the Suzuki Q packs quite a punch. It's loaded with hi-tech features like rear-view cameras and a built-in smartphone dock.
Trend Themes
1. Compact Commuter Cars - Designing cars that are optimized for city living is an opportunity for car makers to escalate sales and provide a useful mode of transportation to consumers.
2. Motorcycle-inspired Car Design - Exploring inspiration from compact motorcycle designs can lead to innovation in automotive manufacturing.
3. Integrating Hi-tech Features in Small Cars - Incorporating contemporary features expected from larger vehicles in small cars can create a point of differentiation and attract tech-savvy consumers.
Industry Implications
1. Automotive Manufacturing - The automotive manufacturing industry has the potential for disruptive innovation by designing and manufacturing affordable and practical compact cars for urban commuters.
2. Smartphone Technology - Integrating smartphone docks in cars presents an opportunity for technology companies to partner with car manufacturers to deliver a more connected commuting experience.
3. Micro-mobility - The trend towards micro-mobility presents an opportunity for innovation in designing more efficient and convenient modes of urban transportation.
