The Suzuki Cappuccino is a small 2-door, 2-seater hard top roadster produced by Suzuki Motor Corporation. The vehicle was designed to meet Kei car specifications for lower tax and insurance in Japan. Weighing just 700 kg (1543 lb), the Cappuccino is powered by a three-cylinder, all-alloy 657 cc DOHC engine (just under the 660 cc maximum displacement allowed for a Kei car). Its dimensions also conformed to Kei car regulations on length and width, being 3295 mm (129.7 in) long and 1395 mm (54.9 in) wide.

Front-rear weight distribution is claimed to be 50/50% when both seats are occupied. Layout is front mid-engined and rear-wheel drive.

Three removable roof panels mean that the car can be used as a closed coupé; T-top; targa; or, on retraction of the rear window and roll bar, a full convertible. Roof panels stow in the trunk, and the rear window/rollcage assembly retracts into the body behind the seats.

It was originally equipped with the F6A engine: later models were fitted with a K6A engine which was lighter and had chain-driven, rather than belt-driven, camshafts and more torque. Both are DOHC 12-valve, inline 3-cylinder engines that were turbocharged and intercooled. Power output was a claimed 63 hp (47 kW) for Kei car purposes.

The Cappuccino featured 4-wheel disc brakes, possibly the first production iteration of electric power-assisted steering, aluminium double wishbone suspension and rear wheel drive. Production began in 1991 and ceased in 1997. The Cappuccino's closest competitor of the time were the Autozam AZ-1, Honda Beat and the Daihatsu Leeza Spyder. (The Autozam AZ-1, Honda Beat and Suzuki Cappuccino were together called the Sporty K-Car's ABC.)

In Initial D Fourth Stage, the Northern Saitama Alliance raced a red Cappuccino (with Sakamoto as its driver) in a desperate attempt to defeat Project D's Takumi Fujiwara and his Toyota Sprinter Trueno AE86. The Cappuccino had a massive advantage going downhill, but the driver was not fully able to take advantage of the lighter weight of his car, due to inexperience with the vehicle and poor weather conditions. The Cappuccino is the only Suzuki car to feature in the Initial D franchise thus far.

I was about to say "Well, cool, but the name makes it neutral." Then I saw the Fighter Engineering one. AWESOME.

In Japan, it would be uncool. In the USA, sub fucking zero.

It's my favorite of these little kei roadsters, though I like them all. I don't get the complaints about the name either, who cares?

Would you care if it was called "Suzuki Preppy Bitch Drink"?

I'd chalk that up to it being Japanese, remove the badging, and drive it anyway.
