The first presentation of the car outside of Japan was held in October 1992 at the British International Auto Show. One of the main ideas in those days was to create a car that would be economical when paying taxes and insurance in Japan. However, it is worth noting that this did not become an obstacle to creating a truly sports car. The sporting spirit of the Suzuki Cappuccino is laid, as in the exterior, and in the technical equipment. As for the exterior, a removable hardtop, which in turn consists of three parts, plays an unimportant role. As a result, the car could act as a coupe, T-top, a car in the back of a targa, and also as a convertible (for this it was enough to remove the rear window). The wheelbase of the car was 2,060 mm, length - 3,295 mm, width - 1,395 mm, and height - 1,185 mm.

Under the hood, the Suzuki Cappuccino had a longitudinally turbocharged three-cylinder, 12-valve DOHC engine with a volume of 0.7 liters and 64 hp. with distributed fuel injection and intercooler. The first version of the engine was called the F6A, and later the K6A engine was installed, which was lighter and had a chain drive instead of the belt used in the F6A engine. Such a power unit paired with a 4-speed manual transmission allowed to reach a maximum speed of 150 km / h. It is worth noting that the weight of the car was only 700 kg.
