The all-new Suzuki Baleno is to make its world premiere at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September.
The debut of the full production version follows on from the iK-2 Concept seen at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year.
The Baleno is to feature the first application of a newly developed 1.0-litre BOOSTERJET direct injection turbocharged petrol engine.
Suzuki says the Baleno's layout has been optimised and various technologies used to reduce weight in order to meet the rigorous size and weight requirements specific to compact cars.
Further details will be revealed at the Suzuki press conference at the Frankfurt Motor show on Tuesday 15 September.
The new Baleno is scheduled to go on sale in the UK early next Summer.
