The reports of the Suzuki Kizashi’s death are greatly exaggerated. In fact, it’s scheduled for an unveiling, in final production form, at this year’s New York Auto show.

Rumors of the vehicles demise, allegedly killed by the angry Carpocalypse monster, began to swirl yesterday. Now, an American Suzuki representative has told Automobile Magazine of the company’s plan to unveil the mid-size sedan in April.

The 2010 Suzuki Kizashi, which could use V6 engines making up to 300 HP, represents the company’s attempt to build a passenger vehicle people might actually want to buy. It’s been previewed by several concept, most recently by the Kizashi 3 concept in New York last year. Spy shots of the production model have, however, demonstrated a much-reduced visual appeal. We’re rooting for Suzuki’s little car that could, but we’re not holding our breath. [Automobile Magazine]
