The PX is an entertainingly offbeat, American retro-styled, three-row minivan concept with a very luxurious, six-seat cabin. It is aimed, Suzuki says, at men with families who don't necessarily want to conform to the routine and normality of everyday life, which sounds like the marketing brief for half of the SUVs built in the past ten years. The military-inspired, aerodynamic body is 174 inches (14.5 feet) long and rides on a long, 118-inch wheelbase and twenty-inch tires (try that on your mom's Odyssey).
Inside, the classic twin-cowl dashboard is reminiscent of the 1963-68 Corvette. The 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine comes from Suzuki's new domestic-market Escudo (sold in the U.S. as the Grand Vitara). The PX name, of course, refers to the U.S. military canteens, which is no surprise since the United States has maintained huge military bases in Japan since WWII.
