SuoKanAu Suomia TTR Concept
After 16 years, SuoKanAu is finally back in business, ready to revolutionize the inexpensive car market once again, in the typical Finnish style, of course.


The Suomia is SuoKanAu’s new car for 2008, presented here in the high-performance TTR edition.
Since TTR stands for TurboTron (an advanced electronic turbo management system developed by SuoKanAu in the 80’s), the new Suomia features a turbocharged “SU TurboTech 2.0 TTR” 2.0L, inline-4 unit capable of 265hp and 276Nm.
(Note: the production Suomia probably won’t look like this)

SuoKanAu, Spooling up your life, once again

Mizuiro’s debut at the prestigious Geneva International Motor Show comes in the form of a hot hatch, albeit one endowed with a myriad of state-of-the-art features. The Mizuiro Kigaru is a car suited for city life that isn’t afraid to step out of its comfort zone.

The Kigaru uses a five-door design with retractable front door handles and a lack of external handles on the tailgate or rear doors; the former uses an electric release, while the handles of the latter are situated at the front of the door jambs. A pillarless clamshell door arrangement is used, wherein the two rear doors are hinged at the rear and open backwards. LED running lights and indicators have been incorporated into the headlights alongside HID projectors, while the pattern present in the all-LED taillights evokes the Kigaru’s bubbly personality.

Underlying said personality is an engine that combines Mizuiro’s tried-and-true inline-four formula with direct injection and a unique five-valve system in order to balance performance and fuel economy. This engine, a turbocharged 1.6-litre capable of 115 kW (154 hp), is coupled to a six-speed electronically controlled automatic gearbox with a manual mode. Both the front and rear axles use double-wishbone suspension, allowing for optimal handling and ride quality without the complexity of multilink suspension.

The Kigaru’s interior echoes the two-tone paint scheme seen on the exterior, with the headrests, ceiling, and upper pillars clad in orange and everything below in white or light grey. A heads-up display projects speed and navigation information onto the driver’s side of the lower windshield, in addition to the standard instrument cluster and 8" infotainment screen.

In addition, the Kigaru Concept Cup is a race-oriented version that has had every performance aspect of it refined, from roadholding and power to aerodynamics and weight.

Simply put, the Kigaru Concept isn’t just a car for city driving, but also a car for stretching your legs out on the open road.
