2007 Suzuki Kizashi Concept

At this year’s edition of the New York International Show, the Japanese automaker Suzuki will bring two concepts based on the company’s Kizashi sedan. The first one is going to be a hybrid version, while the other will most likely be a tuned model with various styling cues inspired from Suzuki’s motorcycle division.

The Suzuki Kizashi is one interesting sedan, but while its regular versions might not demand much respect, people were awaiting something a bit more exciting when the Kizashi Sport was revealed. Sadly, that didn’t happen, as the model developed just 185 HP.

Now, the crew at Road Race Motorsports decided to really upgrade the Japanese sedan, and have revealed the Suzuki Kizashi Platinum Edition.

The new model boasts a supercharger added to the 2.4-liter engine, which can take power output to either 200 HP or a more impressive 300 HP. The suspension can also be had in three stages, depending on what type of handling you want.

The exterior of the Kizashi has been upgraded as well, in order to reflect its newfound performance, with a dedicated body kit. 18- or 19-inch wheels can also be added, alongside various other upgrades that the customer might want.

The Platinum Edition performance package will be available from RRM or from select Suzuki dealerships.

You know what car would be perfect for a Bonneville land speed record attempt? The Suzuki Kizashi!

That’s what the guys from Road & Track believed, as the magazine went to work, with the help of customizer Richard Holdener, on a tuned Kizashi that would break the speed record on the famous salt flats of Bonneville.

As such, with an overhauled four cylinder engine and a turbocharger capable of blasting 16 pounds of boost, the Suzuki Kizashi reached an impressive 203 mph, and now holds the land speed record in the Blown Gas Coupe category.

Check out the two record breaking videos after the jump.

The Suzuki Kizashi has been around for a pretty brief amount of time, but a recall has already been issued by the Japanese company for its sedan model.

It seems that one of the doors from a lower center box on the dashboard has a faulty mechanism which, in the case of an accident, may cause it to swing open. As you can imagine, given the right (or actually wrong) circumstances, this can cause some serious injuries.

As such, all 2010 Kizashi models, manufactured between October 13, 2009 and May 31, 2010, will be called back to dealerships, where a new door mechanism will be installed, free of charge.

For more details, you can contact Suzuki at 714-996-7040.

Suzuki launched a very interesting offer last summer, when it offered free gas for the whole season to anyone who purchased either the SX4 Sport or Crossover models.

Now, seeing as how summer is rapidly approaching and people are already thinking about going on vacation, the Japanese company has restarted the ‘free gas for summer‘ offer.

The promotion is now available across the model range, and includes the attractive new Kizashi sedan. Customers who purchase a new car will receive a card that that ranges in value from $280 to $442, good enough for three months of fuel. The amount of money is based on the EPA fuel average numbers for each model and on the NHTSA estimate that people drive around 1,000 miles each month.

The Suzuki Kizashi is getting pretty popular in the USA, so many people were eagerly awaiting the Sport variant, which up until recently was rumored to be powered by a big V6 engine, courtesy of the company’s partnership with GM.

Sadly, as we revealed at the beginning of the year, Volkswagen has acquired a stake in the Japanese carmaker, prompting GM to cut any ties, including the delivery of the V6 units. This means that at the 2010 New York Auto Show, the 2011 Suzuki Kizashi Sport has been revealed with a regular 185 HP 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine.

It’s by no means slow, but we were expecting something more adequate, especially given the chases with angry snowmen. As such, the Sport edition will only impact the suspension, which is harder and lower, and the styling, both on the inside and on the outside. For the interior new trim options are available, as well as black leather options for the steering wheel or gear knob. On the outside, extensions were added to the front bumper, the rocker panels and a series of chrome accents were also thrown in.

Overall, while not exactly what we expect, the 2011 Suzuki Kizashi Sport will deliver an enhanced feeling.

Suzuki is quite proud of its new Kizashi sedan, which is currently being launched or is already available in many countries.

That’s why it wants to get some of its main attributes across. In order to achieve this, two very interesting ads were just released by the Japanese company.

One tackles the preconception that only rich guys can afford quality sedans and the other tackles a daily annoyance when driving in the winter: killer snow men. I’m sure most of you encountered this problem time and time again, but thanks to the new Kizashi with AWD, you’ll escape their wicked wooden arms much easier.

Don’t believe me? Hit the jump and enjoy these new ads for the Suzuki Kizashi.

Suzuki continues its Kizashi concept series with the latest one, the Suzuki Kizashi 3 Concept. And we find Suzuki’s approach with the Kizashi concepts very interesting. Instead of presenting one very futuristic concept and then going straight to a lot less impressive production version, Suzuki chose to unveil these concepts, developed by Suzuki’s Advanced Design Group, one at a time, each one being closer to the final, production-ready version.

After presenting the Kizashi 1 at Frankfurt and the Kizashi 2 at Tokyo, now the Kizashi 3 was unveiled at the New York International Auto Show, which is taking place these days in NY. Not as impressive as the first one, the Kizashi 3 is a sport sedan concept and it previews Suzuki’s upcoming competitor in this market. Like the other two concepts, this one’s front part is very aggressive, emphasized by the impressive headlights.

Built on a four-wheel drive platform with Advanced i-AWD system, the Kizashi 3 is powered by a 3.6-liter DOHC V6 engine which develops an estimated 300 hp and is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission (with paddle shifters on the steering wheel).

So, overall, not a bad addition to the Kizashi series and we’re waiting now for the fourth. See more photos of the Suzuki Kizashi 3 Concept and read the full press release after the jump.
