What's Up With The Bunny?

Update 2023 SOLD

Affectionately known as the "bunny car" amongst the SushiCars crew, the Lapin (get it? French for rabbit...) is an exciting limited edition based on the well known Suzuki Alto.


The Alto (and it's many other sub-models and trims) sold well all over the world. Maybe you recognize the alto as a Cervo, Fronte, Mehran, or even the Marui A-Star, City, baby......TT, 800, GLOW, or Works, the list goes on.


What is important here is this is a world renowned Kei car, trusted by millions, in arguably the best possible configuration available in Canada right now.  The Lapin, HE21S version is also sold as a Mazda Spiano. Tried and true engineering from Suzuki and Mazda in this perfectly balanced, spaciously compact 5 door. 


Priced at $10,499 (SOLD) We have enjoyed this car in Japan and it has now shipped to Rob in Canada to review and enjoy before it moves on to a new owner.

Optional RPM gauge provides sporty feel


"bunny" theme throughout. It's all in the details with this car



"The Suzuki Lapin is a kei car with a five-door hatchback body, manufactured since 2002 by Suzuki for the Japanese market only, and was also marketed in Japan only by Mazda as Mazda Spiano under an OEM agreement through their Autozam stores until 2008.


It is based on Suzuki's popular Alto kei car.

The Lapin has a very distinctive, boxy shape, that apparently proved popular with female buyers.


The name "Lapin" stems from the French word for "rabbit", and the car sports rabbit-head badges.


The Mazda version has differences concerning some styling details, including a different front end.

The Alto Lapin was awarded the 2008 Japanese Good Design Award.[1]"



Bunny theme even extends to the optional OE badging!

What We Have To Say 

The Lapin puts a smile on your face every time you see or drive it. A fun city buzz, confidence not worrying about charging an EV, just gas up and go and yet still enjoy a low running cost. 

The Lapin, and any Alto are cheap to maintain and parts are plentiful. As a Suzuki product many parts can be sourced locally through dealers in Canada, or you can go through SushiCars or other JDM specialists if you so desire. 

Given the 3 cylinder engine this car has pep and you feel that through the conventional steering and suspension. Thanks to low KMs, this car is still tight feeling and there are no rattles and clanks that you might get from a 200,000KM civic of a similar "vintage"

The chocolat options and trim, combined with the crystal black paint, new tires brakes and rims and punchy/sporty grill all give this car it's excitement. We are yet to get so many people walk up and want to know more about one of our Kei cars as this one, it is a crowd pleaser for sure which has generated a lot of buzz on our Social Media too! 

A handsome beast, ready for pickup prior to export at Mt. Fuji, Japan
