Suzuki will unveil two concept cars at the Geneva Motor Show in March: the iK-2 subcompact hatchback and the iM-4 subcompact SUV. The iK-2 provides a glimpse of a car set to be sold alongside the Swift subcompact while the iM-4 subcompact SUV previews a new model that be sold alongside the SX4 S-Cross and Jimny cars.

A Suzuki spokesperson told Automotive News Europe that production versions of the concepts will be "additional cars in the range." He remarked that the Jimny would not be replaced but will be updated to comply with the new Euro 6 emissions standard.

Suzuki posted a 7-percent jump in sales in the EU and EFTA markets in 2014 to 162,828 units, which allowed it to hike its market share by one percentage point to 1.3 percent, according to industry association ACEA.

In 2014, Suzuki sold 3 percent less Swift subcompacts in Europe to 49,842, according to figures from JATO Dynamics. Suzuki also saw sales of the SX4 drop by half to 13,955 in 2014.

On the other hand, Suzuki logged sales surges for the Jimny (2 percent to 10,835 units) and SX4 C-Cross (almost fourfold to 39,208 units). The carmaker is set to introduce the new Vitara subcompact crossover in Europe next month.
