This is the most exciting car to come from Suzuki in a while. The Kizashi is an attractive sedan that we have high hopes will be a part of the carmaker’s U.S. lineup. From this spy shot we can see the production version will keep many of the styling cues shown by the recent Kizashi 3 concept car . The production car will likely top out with a 3.5-liter V6 unit, while the rest of the cars will come with four-cylinder engines in both gas and diesel versions (although likely gas only for the U.S.)
Suzuki has close ties with General Motors. GM currently owns only about three percent of the company, but they have many joint production agreements. If the Kizashi is as much of a winner as it looks, GM may want to try and do some of its infamous rebadging to get its hands on a good/cheap sedan. Buick Kizashi anyone?
