This is a list of automobile engines created by Suzuki. Suzuki is unusual in never having made an OHV automobile engine, having depended on two-strokes for longer than most. Their first four-stroke engine was the SOHC F8A, which appeared in 1977. By a considerable margin, Suzuki was the last Japanese manufacturer to offer a two-stroke engine in an automotive application.


Suzulight SF Series — 360 cc (22.0 cu in) air-cooled 2-stroke, 59.0 x 66.0 mm bore/stroke (downsleeved copy of Lloyd LP400 engine)

FB Series — 359 cc (21.9 cu in) 2-stroke, 61.0 x 61.5 mm bore/stroke. A reed valve system was introduced with the L40 version of this engine.[1]

  • Suzuki FB engine — air-cooled
  • Suzuki FE/FE2 engine — air-cooled, FF applications
  • Suzuki L50 engine — water-cooled
  • Suzuki L60 engine — water-cooled 446 cc (27.2 cu in) 2-stroke, 68.0 x 61.5 mm bore/stroke (export only)

FC (prototype) — 360 cc (22.0 cu in) 2-stroke, 64.0 x 56.0 mm bore/stroke

This prototype produced 25 hp at 6,000 rpm. It was fitted to a rear-engined prototype (also named FC) in 1961, as part of the development work for the LC10 Fronte.

Suzuki also briefly installed Toyota's (as used by Daihatsu) 547 cc two-cylinder AB10 OHC engine in SS11 Frontes built in 1977 and 78, as an interim measure while work was progressing on their own four-stroke engine.[2]

  • Suzuki LC engine — 2-stroke
    • LC10 — 356 cc (21.7 cu in) air-cooled (52.0 x 56.0mm)
    • LC10W/LC20 — 356 cc (21.7 cu in) water-cooled
    • LC50 — 475 cc (29.0 cu in) air-cooled (60.0 x 56.0mm)
    • T4A engine — 443 cc (27.0 cu in) 2-stroke (58.0 x 56.0mm). This was simply a bored out version of the LC10W.

F engine[edit]

The 970 cc F10A engine as well as 870 cc (62.0 x 72.0 mm, LJ462Q) and 1,051 cc (65.5 x 78.0 mm, LJ465Q) versions thereof are still produced in China and see use in a wide number of vehicles.

G engine[edit]

J engine[edit]

K engine[edit]

  • Suzuki K engine — 1.0–1.6 L I4
    • K10A — 996 cc (60.8 cu in) (68.0 x 68.6 mm) DOHC 16-valve, later with VVT and available with turbocharging. - The K10A has variable inlet cam timing and an 8.4:1 static compression ratio. Maximum output of the turbo version is 74 kW at 6,500 rpm and 122 Nm at 3,000 rpm. In naturally aspirated form it produces (70 PS).[5] This engine is popular with hobbyist aircraft and hovercraft builders due to its light weight, torque and top-end power potential.
      • 1997-2000 Suzuki Wagon R Wide (naturally aspirated for the EU market).
    • K12M — 1.2 L (1,197 cc) DOHC 16-valve, 85 PS (63 kW)
    • K12B — 1.2 L (1,242 cc) DOHC 16-valve VVT
