With Toyota's help, the Suzuki Cappuccino is resurrected

The little legend of a kei car Suzuki Cappuccino, which is also found in Denmark, is now being resurrected with Toyota's help.

While there are many indications that the next Mazda MX-5 will be an electric car, the new Suzuki Cappuccino sticks to the internal combustion engine.

That's what Best Car writes.

The Japanese media, which tend to be extremely well informed about car news from that part of Asia, write that Suzuki is getting Toyota's help to breathe new life into the little Cappuccino.

Allegedly, both Mazda, Suzuki and Toyota, who by the way have just sworn to keep the internal combustion engine alive, have been working on the project since 2019.

The recipe is simple, and as we know it from the first Cappuccino. Namely a center-motorized case with rear-wheel drive. Or that was actually the plan.

But now things have evolved. Such that the platform on which the small car is to be built grows so much that it can no longer be considered a Kei Car. In other words, cars that are known to drive around with very small petrol engines.

Instead, the trio of car brands have plans for a direct 'competitor' to the MX-5. But unlike the Starlet, which Toyota is rumored to be reviving as well, the Suzuki is sticking with rear-wheel drive.

The engine in Cappuccino is also growing. According to Best Car, Suzuki borrows the 1.3-litre, three-cylinder petrol that Toyota already uses in the GR Corolla Sport. That means a performance of just around 140 horsepower.

Suzuki – and Toyota for that matter – are not the only ones looking back at the model range when it comes to new models.

Ford does exactly the same thing. The brand wants to revive the Capri name. In fact, Ford is so far along with those plans that the prototypes are already on the road. And the public presentation is just around the corner. Read more about it here .
