Suzuki set for new all-wheel drive launch
Riyadh, June 12, 2010
Suzuki Saudia, the sole distributor of Suzuki vehicles in Saudi Arabia and part of Bamarouf Group, will launch a new all-wheel drive sedan from Japan-based Suzuki in the Saudi market by the last quarter of 2010.
Japan-based Suzuki Motors Corporation recently launched the new Suzuki Kizashi at a major automotive specialty products trade event in the US.
The Suzuki Kizashi features a new chassis design which enhances aerodynamics to enable the vehicle to cruise at high speeds while maintaining an exceptional degree of stability, a statement said.
It is supported by iron beams to ensure added sturdiness. It is powered by a 220 KW V6 3.6 litre engine and will be available to Saudi drivers with a 6-speed automatic transmission gear, it added.
“As the sole agent for Suzuki vehicles in the KSA, our company always seeks to promote the highest standards of excellence and quality and to meet the needs of its customers,” said Maher Al Nabawi, deputy general manager of Suzuki Saudia.
“Our launching of the Suzuki Kizashi 2011 in the last quarter of this year will reaffirm this commitment.”
“This family vehicle boasts several features that make it an ideal choice for those who seek comfort and performance while driving, and sets a new benchmark in the midsize sedan segment,” he added.
“As a leading manufacturer of compact cars, Suzuki was able to successfully combine high-end design with advanced performance through the new Kizashi,” Al Nabawi continued.
“While this model enabled our parent company to strengthen its position in the European and American markets, we believe that the Kizashi will also fully meet the expectations of the Saudi market. We expect this model to be a major success in the Kingdom and help increase our share in the domestic market,” he concluded. – TradeArabia News Service
