Suzuki’s Kizashi 3 makes debut
Dubai, March 26, 2008
Suzuki Motor Corporation’s concept “Kizashi 3” has made its international debut at the New York International Auto Show.
The sleek and athletic concept “Kizashi 3” is the latest addition to Suzuki’s highly acclaimed series of concept cars that include the concept Kizashi and concept Kizashi 2, the company said in a statement.
Suzuki is now moving forward with the third phase of its world strategy, a phase in which it will enter the D-segment (midsize segment), it added.
The concept Kizashi series was developed 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. It symbolises both Suzuki's future design direction and stated intent to enter the D-segment category, the company said.
The concept Kizashi 3 represents a closer-to-production vision of a future Suzuki sport sedan offering. The concept Kizashi's "supersport" identity, a core component of the Suzuki brand DNA, is tempered by the design's overall impression of strong, refined urban performance, it added.
The global reveal of the new concept will be joined in New York by the North American debuts of the concept Kizashi and concept Kizashi 2, marking the first time the complete Kizashi series has been publicly displayed together.
The Suzuki booth at the New York International Auto Show will also include other exciting products that embody the company’s “Way of Life!” message. The lineup will include production cars such as the Grand Vitara, SX4 and XL7. – TradeArabia News Service
