The new model year brought the Suzuki Hustler crossover an “off-road” version of Tough Wild

As expected, the new version has a more impressive appearance. The equipment of the standard model has been improved. All the equipment is the same.

The small SUV Suzuki Hustler (the model has nothing to do with the men's magazine of the same name) entered its second generation at the very end of 2019; such a compact appeared at Japanese dealers in January 2020. The change of generations benefited the kei car – the cross, which had lost buyers, became popular again. Thus, according to local specialized media, in 2023, 82,720 Suzuki Hustler SUVs were sold in Japan, which is 17.5% more than the previous year. Nevertheless, the company decided to refresh the model.

The main thing is that the cross has an “off-road” Tough Wild package (by the way, the previous generation also had a version with the same name). External features of this Suzuki Hustler are its own radiator grille, modified bumpers, square foglight housings instead of round ones, chrome plated front and rear, black 15-inch wheels, roof rails and a corporate emblem. For an additional fee, you can install a roof rack. There is also a two-tone body paint available. But the ground clearance has not increased (180 mm).

The interior of the Suzuki Hustler Tough Wild features dark green decorative inserts and water-repellent fabric seat upholstery. The list of standard equipment also includes climate control and heated front seats. A multimedia system with a 9-inch screen is still offered exclusively as an option.

Well, now about new things for the usual Hustler. LED headlights are now included in the base, starting with the second-oldest configuration, an inscription with the model name appears on the hood, and the foglights are framed in chrome. In addition, the palette of body colors has been expanded. Finally, LED bulbs were installed in the interior of the rich versions.

The reforms did not affect the technology. The Suzuki Hustler (including the Tough Wild version) is available with a three-cylinder 660 cc petrol engine producing 49 hp, and you can also choose a model with a turbocharged version of this engine (64 hp). In both cases, the SUV is a “mild” hybrid, that is, the motor works with a starter-generator. The SUV is equipped with a CVT. Front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive.

Standard Suzuki Hustler

The price of a standard refreshed Suzuki Hustler starts at 1,518,000 yen, which is equivalent to approximately 867,000 rubles at the current exchange rate. The “off-road” version of Tough Wild will cost at least 1,760,000 yen (about 1,005,000 rubles).
