Suzuki 1975

       

Japan

For the 1976 model year the Hatch had lost another horsepower, as emissions rules were gradually tightened, and received a new grille, the taillights were held in place by two rather than three screws, and the C-pillar logo was altered. A more luxurious "Custom" model was also brought out for 1976. This had more comfortable (softer) suspension, lowering cargo capacity from 300 to 200 kg (660 to 440 lb).
The LJ50 3-cylinder 593 cc engine was first introduced in September 1975 for export only, with 33 PS (24 kW).
