Leaked patent images preview the future production version of the Suzuki iM-4. Naturally, the vehicle comes with a toned down design – gone are the Kia Soul-like profile and the full-LED headlights. Also, the wheels are much smaller, while the side mirrors feature conventional shape with integrated turning signals.

According to the information currently available, the final production car will be launched in late 2016 and will rival the likes of the Fiat Panda. Based on the Baleno that will debut at the 2015 IAA, the machine will be offered with a 1.0-liter 3-cylinder turbo petrol unit and a 1.2-liter Dualjet naturally aspirated unit from the Swift. Front-wheel drive will be standard but all-wheel drive will be optional.
