Japanese tax breaks for cars under 660cc were the main reason for the Cappuccino's existence. Until then, most cars offered in the sector were tiny city hatchbacks designed for commuters, but offering little in the way of driver appeal. The Cappuccino, though, would change all that. Equipped with a revvy little turbocharged three-pot engine capable of over 9,000rpm, it offered surprising performance from such a tiny unit, while the stunning styling looked fantastic despite the car's minusucule dimensions. It was a hoot to drive, too. With its engine mounted longitudinally and supplying drive to the rear wheels, the Suzuki had near perfect 50:50 weight distribution, giving it excellent poise and handling balance, while a snappy gearshift and direct steering added to its driver appeal. Just over 1000 were exported to the UK, with a handful being sold in Europe between 1993 and 1995.
