AMERICAN SUZUKI INVOGORATES CONSUMERS' 'WAY OF LIFE,' INTRODUCES 2007 'SUZUKI LIVE SERIES' CONCEPT VEHICLESBaseCamp concept vehicle adds dose of exhilaration to any weekend
Last year, American Suzuki Motor Corporation (ASMC) launched the 'Suzuki LIVE Series' (LIFE VEHICLES) – a line of brand-dedicated concept vehicles specially designed for life enthusiasts, adventurers and thrill-seekers. In concert wîth its 'Way of Life' brand mantra, which promises products for consumers' active lifestyles, and to support the launch of the all-new XL7 and SX4, ASMC introduces four all-new 'Suzuki LIVE Series' vehicles in model year 2007, illustrating how its cars and SÚVs play an integral part of consumers' lifestyles. The vehicles coined BaseCamp for outdoor enthusiasts; Flix for film and entertainment buffs; Zuk for motorcycle aficionados; and SXBox for avid gamers; will be on display at various auto shows and lifestyle events around the country.
Built by the Carlab of Orange, Calif., and based on the 2007 XL7, the BaseCamp concept offers cutting-edge design and technology to fulfill the needs of outdoor enthusiasts. The BaseCamp's exterior is blanketed wîth liquid metal body paint and finished wîth titanium cladding around the perimeter of the vehicle, which also is easily converted to a catwalk for unprecedented upper vehicle access and storage.
The concept features a unique gullwing passenger side door that when opened, reveals a warm, inviting, modern interior room and attachable peninsula bar work station wîth full media connectivity, including Wi-Fi Internet access, Bluetooth integration and iPod®¹/MP3 capabilities. The BaseCamp also features a custom roof rack system wîth an integrated dual slot bike rack and Santa Cruz mountain bikes, eight high-intensity LED light clusters, including a unique 'down' lighting system, an enclosed cargo/luggage area and forward-mounted miniature camera. After arriving at a campsite, a modern canopy wîth carbon fiber frame can be attached to the roof rack, keeping adventurers dry in inclement weather or protecting against the sun, and creating a welcoming ambiance for visitors.
The BaseCamp's interior reflects a similar high-tech design and feel wîth mica-hued light-toned seating and titanium accents throughout the inside of the vehicle. In the rear cargo area, the vehicle features a utility storage pack and access system. Additionally, the XL7 concept is equipped wîth in-dash CD/DVD and GPS/Navigation system wîth real-time traffic.
