Riding the crest of a sales boom around the world, Suzuki will have a major presence at the 40th Tokyo Motor Show starting later this month. The Suzuki stand will feature a ‘Small Cars for a Big Future’ theme, reflecting the huge future possibilities envisaged by the company for compact cars. “Each of our exhibits will embody the unique spirit and technological prowess that have made Suzuki the leading name in compact car design and production,” said a Suzuki spokesperson.
After wowing the car world with Concept Kizashi at the 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show, Suzuki will unveil Concept Kizashi 2 – a crossover sports wagon – at Tokyo Motor Show.
The Kizashi 2 design conveys the dynamism of a top athlete and inspires a powerful sense of excitement. Conceived for energetic people from all walks of life, Concept Kizashi 2 has an aesthetically pleasing form that reflects a dual focus on status and vitality in a way that generates excitement about its performance and heightens the pleasure of ownership.
Under the bonnet a 3.6-litre V6 – the biggest engine ever used by Suzuki – is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission for powerful acceleration and superb levels of performance. As announced at Frankfurt last month, Suzuki engineers are also pursuing solutions such as hybrid technologies for the mid-size concept programme.
