Suzuki Kizashi Concept first official images

As we reported previously Suzuki will unveil the Kizashi Concept at the Frankfurt Auto Show. The company today unveiled the first official images of the concept.

The English translation for "Kizashi" is "prelude" and it’s name says everything about the car: full of energy, flexible and emotionally appealing.

The theme for this third phase is ‘Status’, with the Kizashi guiding the way to a new direction for Suzuki, representing the continued upward breakthrough of Suzuki and its ability to offer a wider range of vehicles to customers.

Next to the Kizashi, Suzuki will also unveil the Splash and the SX4 WRC pilots.

On sale in Europe in 2008, the 3700 mm long Splash will be available with a choice of three engines; a three-cylinder 1.0-litre (48 kW), a 1.2-litre four-cylinder (63 kW) and a 1.3-litre DDiS turbo-diesel (55 kW) with an optional diesel particulate filter.

Complying with the Euro-4 emissions standard, CO2 emissions for the five-speed manual transmission vary between just 120 and 140 g/km.

And finally Suzuki will unveil the SX4 WRC. Suzuki motorsport legend Nobuhiro ‘Monster’ Tajima, the WRC SX4 has undergone a gruelling testing regime this year and will make its competitive debut in October at the Rallye de France in Corsica as part of the preparation for the 2008 season.

SX4 WRC, you say?!? Interesting times ahead. It’s only a pitty that SpeedChannel can’t find space in a 24hour period to not show NASCAR so that us WRC fans can get a slot. I am itching for a new motorsports channel.
