With these photos, i believe most of you will feel the same as me. Suzuki Corp. has build 3 superbly good-looking modern concept cars. How did it up like the production model ? Our guess is probably, after the 3rd concept comes out, the suzki director comes in to the meeting and say, ” we can’t produce these concept models, it’s too hard to be produce and parts are expensive. The market wouldn’t pay so much for a Suzuki”. When the finance part comes into the design, and this came out –

At some point the Suzuki Kizashi also reminds, me of a Suzuki SX4 Sedan.

True fact is, i’m quite disappointed with the production model because i personally has been following news for the Suzuki Kizashi since the 1st concept. I thought it will be a strong competitor with car such as Toyota Mark X. However after browing about 100+ photos in our gallery of the Suzuki Kizashi, at certain angle the car actually looks not bad.

Looking at the photo just above, we can tell that it will be a competitor of Toyota Camry, Honda Acccord, Mazda 6 and others. The production models of Suzuki Kizashi will be out at the showrooms end of the year and only in America. It will be powered by a all-new Suzuki engine which is 2.4 litre. Suzuki Corp. has not annouce the output figures of this new engine, however did reveal that there will be a hybrid version of the Kizashi later on. Like the Zoom-zoom guys, Suzuki wants to offer their drivers “exhilarating driving experience”. Thus, this new platform features MacPherson struts up front and a multi-link setup in the rear.

As for the transmission Suzuki has indicated there will be a 6-speed manual gearbox or a continuously variable transmission (CVT) gearbox similarly found in Nissan Slyphy or Latio. The new sport sedan is offered with Suzuki’s next generation i-AWD (All wheel drive) system, drivers can activate the “AWD” switch in the instrument panel and the rear will immediately starts acceleration.Providing a rare option in its class, these features enhances safety and performance found in order luxury sport sedan.
