Suzuki will preview its first midsize SUV, designed specifically for the American market, at next month's Detroit show.

Along with expected interior and exterior features, the specification of the so-called 'Concept X' (expect in reality another all but production-ready show car) will include a V6 engine with class-leading horsepower and a new full time four wheel drive system combining on demand and low range ability.

The SUV is one of a new generation of Suzuki vehicles, which include the new Swift, also being built in Hungary, and a new Grand Vitara.
