The Suzuki Splash is a city car introduced in model year 2008 and jointly developed between Suzuki Motor Corporation and Opel — which will also market their version as the Agila. It debuted as a concept car at the 2006 Paris Auto Show and the production model debuted at the 2007 Frankfurt Auto Show. The Splash is slotted below the Swift in the lineup, and uses a shortened wheelbase version of its chassis.

The car was launched with two petrol engines, a 3 cylinder 1.0 litre and 4 cylinder 1.2 litre, and a 4 cylinder version of Fiat's Multijet diesel engine. Unlike its predecessor, the Wagon R+, the Splash has five seats as standard.

It was introduced to the Japanese market on 20th October 2008, available as Splash 1.2 for ¥1,239,000.
