The Suzuki Hustler (Japanese: スズキ・ハスラー, Suzuki Hasurā) is a crossover SUV-styled kei car produced by the Japanese automaker Suzuki since 2014.[1] The car is also sold by Mazda as the Mazda Flair Crossover (Japanese: マツダ・フレアクロスオーバー, Matsuda Furea Kurosuōbā) through an OEM agreement.

Name[edit]

Suzuki's design department chose the name "Hustler" to promote the car's lively and rough riding image. The name was used by Suzuki in the past as the nickname of a two-stroke, dual-sport motorcycle, the Hustler TS50. The car's accessories also have a replica sticker of the emblem that was once used in the TS50.[2]
