While Suzuki's perhaps best crossover concept never made it to production, the automaker does have one great concept SUV success to its name. The 1993 Tokyo Auto Show's X-90 was at Japanese dealers by 1995, with optional all-wheel drive.

Known in other markets as the Vitara X-90, Suzuki's two-seat targa was based on the compact Sidekick SUV, featuring a 1.6-liter engine, locking hubs and an optional automatic gearbox if you forked out the $1500 premium for the all-wheel drive variant. The base car started at a reasonable $13,889 for 1996.

Be as fun and adventurous as a small T-top crossover can be, the X-90 didn't catch the imagination of its target audience, with sales ending in the UK after just eighteen month. Drive one today though, and Suzuki's mid-1990s shocker won't fail to turn heads, on and off the paved road.
