Suzuki may no longer sell vehicles in North America (man, we wish the Jimny was still around), but it's still a significant player in the global automotive industry. The Japanese automaker, which makes cars, motorcycles, outboard boat engines and probably plenty of other things we're not even aware of, debuted two concept vehicles on Wednesday at the Tokyo Motor Show.

According to Suzuki, the theme of its display this year is, "Waku Waku Switch for Everyone: Excitement for you, excitement for everyone." Confused yet? So are we.

New Subaru Levorg teased ahead of Tokyo Motor Show

  New Subaru Levorg teased ahead of Tokyo Motor Show The wagon variant of the Subaru WRX will probably stay away from the U.S.Based on the teaser image and video, the new Levorg's styling will be evolutionary. The various creases along the side have a bit more curve to them to emphasize the bulging fenders. The lines also look similar to those of the Subaru Viziv Tourer concept shown at the Geneva Motor Show last year.

The world could use more cute cars -- and Suzuki delivers. The Japanese automaker, which makes cars, motorcycles, outboard boat engines and probably plenty of other things we're not even aware of, will have two concept vehicles on display at the upcoming biannual Tokyo Motor Show .

As for the actual concept vehicles that will be unveiled, the first one is called the Waku Spo. An A-segment two-door car with some cool retro touches, it's billed as a compact personal plug-in hybrid electric vehicle. Its two-tone paint, fender-mounted side-view mirrors (though with this design study they more likely house cameras), nearly filled-in wheel faces and truncated rear make for an undeniably charming package. According to the announcement, "With this one car, the family can share fun and excitement across generations, for daily use as well as for pleasure."

The Waku Spo also features a body that can change shape, alter the front mask and even switch up the content shown on its dashboard. It can "transform to meet each and everyone's fun and excitement."

At just 58 inches wide, the four seater's designed to navigate especially cramped urban centers. Slide doors, a retractable ramp, and modular seating that can be moved around the cabin make easier access for the disabled.

Suzuki's Waku Spo concept is retro cool

Hanare is the name of the second design study Suzuki is showing in Tokyo, its name apparently meaning "detached cottage" in Japanese. It is, arguably, more interesting that the Waku Spo. Described as a self-driving mobile room, this autonomous vehicle prioritizes comfort and efficiency. Ostensibly, its interior is sprawl-out spacious.

Nissan used the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show to present a pair of concepts that demonstrate the principles of its new design language, referred to as The Ariya is based on a dedicated EV platform that allowed the designers to minimize the nose section while at the same time stretch the wheelbase.

Looking essentially like a box on wheels, this concept car also appears quite retro, like an oddly proportioned Volkswagen bus of decades past. The front end has been almost comically minimized and the wheels pushed out to the extreme corners of its body, likely in a bid to maximize cabin space.

The Hanare could bring "new delight in owning a car." As a lounge space on wheels, it could also enable passengers to enjoy their vehicles in new ways, ways that don't involve driving.
