The ongoing Beijing Motor Show is definitely a large platform for the automakers to show the world their products. Suzuki is surely one of the largest automaker in Asia. They showcased two Ignis based concept models at the ongoing automotive event, which are Ignis Trail concept and Ignis Water Activity concept. Both these concept cars emphasize the sporty and outdoorsy characteristics of the Ignis micro SUV. Suzuki Ignis was first unveiled 2015 Tokyo Motor Show and later showcased at 2016 Tokyo Auto Salon.

The beltline gets an orange coloured strip running through the length of the car. It also sports bold wheelarch moldings and larger alloy wheels, both painted in glossy black. The wheel spokes get the Orange accents. Overall the Ignis Trail concept is nothing but an Ignis with some additional styling features.
The other concept showcased at the Beijing Motor Show 2016 is the Suzuki Ignis Water Activity concept. It gets a dark green exterior paint, with Orange strip at the front grille, front and rear bumpers. Side sills, wing mirror caps, black alloy wheels.
