Suzuki seems to be making a concerted effort to establish themselves in the increasingly competitive North American car market. At Chicago they introduced the Suzuki Equator, a Frontier-based entrant into the truck market. At that unveil they hinted at a four-door sports for the NY Auto Show, which is the concept you see above. How did we arrive at the Kizashi 3? Simple. Just add the Kizashi 1 to the Kizashi 2 and you get the Kizashi 3. Details are understandably scarce, but we'll be there at NYC to fill in the blanks. Press release and photos of the original Kizashi below.
Suzuki Kizashi 3 Coming To New York
The New York International Auto Show welcomes American Suzuki Motor Corp. on Thursday, March 20, as the company debuts its sleek and athletic Concept Kizashi 3, the final addition to its acclaimed Kizashi concept series. The Concept Kizashi 3, which suggests both Suzuki's future design direction and stated intent to offer a larger, more upscale sport sedan, will be joined in New York by the North American debuts of the Concept Kizashi and Concept Kizashi 2.
The Kizashi concept series was developed by Suzuki's Advanced Design Group to reflect a dynamic athlete in motion, taking its design cues from a strong, honed physique while displaying the performance, strength and style befitting a flagship vehicle. The design theme began with the Concept Kizashi, which made its debut at the 2007 International Motor Show in Frankfurt, and the Concept Kizashi 2, unveiled at the 2007 Tokyo Motor Show last October, which further pushed Suzuki's new design language. The Concept Kizashi 3 will represent the completion of the Kizashi concept series as well as providing a closer-to-production vision of a future Suzuki sport sedan offering. The complete Kizashi concept series will be revealed at the Suzuki press conference on Thursday, March 20, at 12:10 p.m. in booth 1215 at the Javits center.
